WORK VISAS & PERMITS
Ministry of IRCC defines various ways to legally work inside Canada. For most of the jobs, Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), issued by the Ministry of ESDC, needs to be accompanied along the job offer to make it validated. The purpose of this exercise is to ensure that priority has been given to Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents for the job. A foreign worker is only hired if it cannot be filled locally.
Canadian Government recognizes the fact that LMIA can be a lengthy process to facilitate workers for Canadian businesses. As a result, they have placed few occupations and few Immigration streams to be exempt from LMIAs. Some LMIA Exempt programs include Caregivers and IEC candidates. If you fall under these streams, please explain your situation for a tailored response from us.
In some cases, an applicant is not required to have either LMIA or a job offer to qualify for Work Permits. These cases include students who completed at least 2 years of qualifying education, workers under International Agreements (life NAFTA), Spouses of NOC 0, A or B foreign workers with work permits of 6+ months, entrepreneurs and workers transferred within a company, Academics (researchers, guest lecturers or visiting professors), Co-Op students, spouses of qualifying full time foreign students who are not enrolled in full time studies themselves, Refugee Claimants & Religious Workers.
Workers nominated by a province, for PR with a job offer, may also qualify for LMIA exempt work visa.
Employers who are seeking foreign nationals to join their work force, in order, to gain competitive edge in the industry, or to fulfill labour shortages that can't be filled locally may qualify for positive or neutral LMIA from the Ministry of Economic Social Development of Canada (ESDC). Once an LMIA is issued, the employed may bring in the required talent, from foreign countries, to join their work force.
There are two types of LMIA: Low-Wage LMIA and High-Wage LMIA and the requirements for both vary for both types of LMIAs. If you are in need of foreign worker and wish to apply for LMIA, please give us a shout out.
Foreign nationals are an easy target for scammers, UnAuthorized Practitioners (UAPs), who try their best to make a fake LMIA based job offer to look real. Here is a free Pro Tip for potential foreign workers: "Real job offers wouldn't require them to pay a penny for the job. The employers in Canada are seeking foreign workers to fill labour shortages, and they have already paid for LMIA processing fee to hire foreign workers. In some cases, they even pay for traveling expenses for their potential employee."
Workers coming to Canada on job offer based Work Visa do not need additional proof of funds. If you qualify for a work permit in Canada under any stream, please drop us a line.
