Work Permit – Canada

 

A common question that Alexander Immigration Services often faces:

“Will you please get me a job and a work permit in Canada?”

Foreign workers need an offer of employment from a Canadian Employer before being granted a Work Permit, and in most cases the Canadian Employer needs to obtain a LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) prior to giving a job offer, unless they are exempt from obtaining a LMIA due to International Agreements, Federal-Provincial Agreements or “Canadian Interests” Category.

We do not provide recruitment services for our clients, but yes, we do provide immigration services like applying for LMIA and work permits.

A word of caution to our readers – Beware of Immigration Firms that say they can find you employment and get you a job offer. There is an extremely high degree of fraud in this area, and you may be taken advantage of and lose your money.

We strongly encourage our clients to visit Canada Jobs Bank, Indeed.ca, Monster.ca and other job sites to apply for and obtain a suitable job in Canada. Once they get a job offer we help them apply for either Permanent or Temporary Immigration, depending on the circumstances.

New Biometrics Requirements for Foreign Nationals

Depending on your nationality, you may soon be required to give your biometrics (photograph and fingerprints) to the Government of Canada as part of your application for a visitor visa, work or study permit, permanent residence, or refugee or asylum status.

Beginning July 31, 2018, applicants from Europe, the Middle East and Africa will be required to provide biometrics. Then, on December 31, 2018, the requirement will be expanded to applicants from Asia, Asia Pacific, and the Americas. Applicants will only need to give their biometrics once every 10 years.

Exempt from this new requirement are Canadian citizens, existing permanent residents, children under the age of 14, applicants over the age of 79, and visa-exempt nationals entering Canada as tourists who are eTA holders. Also, those applying for a visa, study or work permit, or permanent residence from within Canada are temporarily exempt until in-Canada service centres are established in 2019.
