Work Permit

Canada Work Permit

Canada is now home to different kinds of industries. It is a leader in research industries, business, engineering, healthcare, and not to forget the field of technology. Many international companies are looking to venture their business into Canada because of their diverse culture and multinational population. Canada’s job market is open for everyone with opportunities in various fields. Companies in Canada have an option to offer employment opportunities to individuals living in a different country. Individuals who have a job offer from a Canadian employer are eligible to apply for temporary work permits to take up the job.

Canada has several options for foreign workers. One is the temporary work permit, and the other is applying for permanent residence through the Skilled Worker category. Canada is an attractive option to work in for many skilled foreign workers. Close to 200,000 workers migrate to Canada on Temporary Work Permits every year. Under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and Refugees and Citizen Canada programs (IRCC), Canada work visas are issued. TFWP helps Canadian employers to make up for the labour shortages by employing foreign workers. TFWP is comprised of four streams: high-skilled, low-skilled workers, the Seasonal Agricultural Worker program and the Caregiver Programs. There is also a unique program called Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), which ensures foreign workers do not occupy the jobs that apply to Canadian citizens. To prove this, employers need to obtain prior approval from the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) before offering a position in Canada.

There are four stages before a work permit of Canada is issued. They are:
  • 1. The employer applies for the Labour Market Impact Assessment before extending the job offer.
  • 2. Once the approval is granted, the employer extends the temporary job offer to work in Canada.
  • 3. A foreign worker with a positive LMIA will apply for the Work Permit in Canada.
  • 4. Work Permit gets approved, provided the foreign worker meets every criterion.
Work permit comes with several benefits in Canada. Some of them are:
  • 1. While working in Canada, the foreign worker stands a chance to get Permanent Residence to even Canada citizenship.
  • 2. Canada follows strict labour laws that are intended to protect workers from labour injustices at every point in time. Foreign workers are also covered in this program.
  • 3. With Canada’s economy and the vast availability of jobs, wages are considerably fair compared to the rest of the developed countries.
