Many immigrants come to Canada mainly for one purpose, get a job and settle in the country. The good news is that Canada is searching for and bringing skilled immigrants to their country.
Immigrants who are eligible and possess the right skills to fill up vacancies created by the ageing population. Also, with the rapid creation of jobs and businesses in the country, the need to bring eligible and qualified immigrants to fill up these vacancies continues to rise.
How To Work In Canada.
To work in Canada, you must obtain a necessary work permit which permits all temporary immigrants to work in Canada for a short period of time. How to apply for a Canadian work permit.
To apply for a Canadian work permit you must first obtain a valid job offer either outside or within Canada. To prove that you have a legitimate job offer, the employer must issue you a letter of confirmation.
The letter will be submitted along with your work permit application. Some work permits may not necessarily require a compulsory job offer, rather, it may require a Labour Market Impact Assessment from the employer.
There are different work permits you can apply to; the ones requiring a work permit, those requiring an LMIA, and work permits requiring neither a job offer nor an LMIA.
When immigrants come to Canada for work purposes, they are given a temporary work visa. This means their stay is just for a while, but they can change their status to a permanent resident.
To do this, immigrants must go through one of the three processes mentioned below:
The first is an option is to apply via the Federal Skilled Worker Program. If you are a temporary worker, this program permits you to apply for a permanent resident status only if your job is made permanent.
This scenario is known as “arranged employment”. Meanwhile, the candidate must also meet the necessary criteria to qualify for permanent residency under this program.
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP):
In this type of program, temporary workers become permanent residents through nomination. When an immigrant is nominated, the person becomes eligible for permanent residency.
Each province has a separate provincial nominee program. Immigrants who wish to come to Canada must show intentions to reside in that province from which they apply.
Canada Experience Class
This is another pathway for a temporary worker to change their status to permanent resident. Candidates who wish to apply for permanent residency through CEC must gain a minimum Canadian work experience not less than two years.
