work migration

Work in Canada

With Canadian work permits, more than 300,000 foreign workers come here every year. All non-Canadian citizens and temporary foreign workers must first obtain a temporary work visa before applying for a Canadian work permit to work in Canada. Of course, there is an exception that allows some people to work temporarily in Canada without a work visa.

Fortunately, a work visa makes immigrating to Canada feasible if that is your goal. We will answer all your questions in this article.

 

Types of Canadian work visas

 

TFWP Program - Work permit in Canada based on LMIA

Most international workers need a work visa to work temporarily in Canada. To obtain a work visa from Immigration Canada, foreign professionals often need a job offer from a Canadian company.

Employers are required to obtain a Canadian Market Impact Assessment, or LMIA, from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), for a number of job offers. There are several steps in this process. A Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) may also be required to enter Canada, depending on the foreign nationality.

 

IMP Program - Work permit in Canada without LMIA required

The Canadian government allows Canadian companies to hire workers abroad through the International Mobility Program, or IMP for short. These individuals must demonstrate to the Canadian government that working in Canada will "significantly benefit" Canada in terms of economic, cultural and social components in order to receive an IMP temporary work visa. The IMP work visa has the great advantage of not requiring LMIA approval from the Canadian Ministry of Labour.

 

Intra-Company Transfers

The intercompany transfer program allows foreign companies with parent companies, branches, subsidiaries or affiliates in Canada to bring essential employees to those locations. There is no requirement to obtain an LMIA work permit for work permits obtained under this scheme.

 

Caregiver work visa for domestic nurses

Through this plan, nurses and their families can go to Canada and eventually become citizens. Through this pilot program, a person who is working as a home care nurse in Canada or has previous experience in the field of home care nursing in Canada may be able to seek permanent residency in Canada.

 

Work visa after education

Graduates with higher diplomas can stay in Canada and gain work experience there thanks to this program. They can apply for permanent residency through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) because of the work experience they gain in the program.

 

Work visa for the spouse of a student or worker in Canada

The applicant's wife and children can accompany him in Canada as long as he is studying in one of the following ways. Obtaining a student accompanying visa is a stressful and worrying process for many applicants.

Who needs a work visa?

Most people who apply to enter Canada must obtain a temporary work permit in order to work there.

People who need a Canadian work permit can be identified if we look for people who are exempt from the work visa requirement in Canada.

 

Who does not need to get a work visa?

The answer is simple, only some people in certain circumstances. If you want to enter Canada under one of the following headings, you do not need to get a work visa. Of course, each of these cases has conditions and details that we only mention here:

  • Athlete or sports coach of a foreign team
  • Responsible for investigation of air accidents and incidents
  • Commercial representative 
  • Passenger flight inspector and flight expert
  • Responsible for organizing the conference
  • Flight crew, locomotives
  • Emergency response force
  • Scientific and academic referee, observer or evaluator
  • Eyewitness, detective, investigating officer
  • Family members of representatives of foreign countries in Canada 
  • Representatives of foreign countries in Canada
  • Health student
  • Judge or other similar officials in artistic and professional festivals
  • Military personnel
  • Reporter or film crew members
  • Creators and producers of advertising and commercial works
  • Performers (music, dance, etc.)
  • public speaker
  • Religious Leader
  • Highly skilled short-term workforce
  • Short-term researcher and researcher
  • Students working outside the university
  • Students working in the university

If your job is not listed above, you need to apply for a work visa

 

Obtaining a Canadian work visa in just two weeks

The processing period for Canadian work permit applications may be reduced to two weeks under certain circumstances. But first you need to check if a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is part of your work visa. Two-week case review opportunities are available for both visa categories that are subject to the LMIA and are exempt from the LMIA under certain conditions. In addition, in the following circumstances, the applicant's spouse and dependents may also enjoy these benefits:

Work visa exempt from LMIA

If your visa is exempt from LMIA, and you meet  all  the following conditions, then you can receive your visa in two weeks:

  • Apply for a visa from outside Canada.
  • Your job title in the Canadian Occupational Classification System includes Knock Zero (i.e. Managerial Level) or Knock A (Professional Level). 
  • Your employer has presented your job offer through the employer portal and paid for it. 

Work visa with LMIA

If your work visa requires LMIA approval and you meet  all  the following conditions, you can still receive your visa in two weeks:

  • Apply for a visa from outside Canada.
  • Have a positive LMIA through a program known as the Global Talent Stream.

Applicant's spouse and dependents

The applicant's spouse, legal partner and dependent children can also reduce the visa processing time to two weeks, provided that they have submitted complete documents for one of the following three visas:

  • visitor visa
  • work visa
  • Study visa

These people must apply for a visa at the same time as the applicant.

Conversion of work visa to permanent residence in Canada

People who want to live and work in Canada temporarily and for a short time get a work visa. In order to be able to live and work permanently in Canada and obtain Canadian work residency, you must submit an application for permanent residence and convert your work visa.

It is possible to get permanent work residence in Canada through several immigration programs:

  • Express Entry: including FSW Federal Skilled Worker programs, CEC Canadian Experience and FST (Skill Trade) technical and professional workforce
  • Provincial immigration programs of PNPs
  • Quebec immigration programs

Each of the above immigration programs requires specific conditions. To convert your work visa to permanent residence in Canada, you must meet the requirements of that program. For more information, see the page for each immigration program.

 

How to renew a Canadian work visa?

If your work permit is about to expire, you must renew it. This must be done at least 30 days before the expiration date of your work visa.

Make sure your passport is valid enough to extend the work visa for as long as you need as it depends on the expiry date of the passport.

 

Maintaining the immigration status (Implied Status)

If your visa expires while your work permit renewal application is being processed, don't panic. Until you are granted a work visa extension, you are allowed to continue working under your previous status, as implied status, in accordance with Canadian immigration laws.

Preserving the previous status means:

  • The same employer
  • same job
  • The same place of work

Is. Of course, in an open work visa or open work permit, you can change your employer or job without having a negative effect on the extension of your work visa.

 

Can you get a work visa without a language certificate?

Yes, but only in certain circumstances is the answer to this question. A language certificate is not legally required to obtain a Canadian work visa. In fact, those who wish to obtain permanent residence in Canada must provide a certificate of proficiency in English or French.

Of course, it is very important for companies that you are at a good level in terms of language abilities, and depending on the type of job offered, if your work visa requires a job offer, they may ask you for a language certificate. A Canadian company

Having a language certificate is necessary in other situations such as a work visa for Canadian domestic nurses, because this type of work visa depends on permanent residence in Canada, and as we have already stated, having a language certificate is necessary for any immigration program to Canada. .

Express Entry

There are different ways to immigrate to Canada, but currently, the Express Entry Canada option is one of the best and even the fastest with the advantages it offers to us Iranians. Because you can get Canadian permanent residence as soon as possible, unlike other methods that may take several years.

But what is Express Entry? Canada's Express Entry program ranks applicants based on a number of factors. Each Express Entry lottery (lottery) has a maximum number of points that can be granted to one or more applicants for permanent residence.

 

If you don't want to read this article to the end, fill out the immigration assessment form so that one of our knowledgeable consultants can contact you and provide advice.

The good news is that Canada admits over 110,000 skilled workers each year through the Express Entry system, so your prospects for being granted permanent residency through this program are excellent.

Express Entry is a mechanism for online immigration applications. People who have the necessary work skills can send their Express Entry profile. Top ranked candidates are invited to apply for permanent residence. The main goals of this program are to accelerate the immigration process and accelerate the recruitment of skilled workers for Canada's growing economy.

Express Entry is an English word that means  quick entry  . The complexity of the immigration process and the long waiting time for visa issuance made Canada launch the Express Entry system in 2015.

 

What are the benefits of Canada Express Entry?

Federal Skilled Workforce

The Federal Skilled Workers Program (FSWP) was created to immigrate skilled and skilled workers. This program is one of the three main Express Entry programs.

Through the online Express Entry system, qualified applicants can obtain Canadian permanent residence in about six months. They can apply for Canadian citizenship after meeting certain conditions.

This program is seen as one of the ways to bring skilled workers to Canada.

Step 1: Creating a profile

To apply for Canada's federal skilled worker program, you must first create an Express Entry profile. To enter the necessary information when creating a profile, you need a language certificate and a certificate of academic progress.

The GCKey system must be used to create a profile on the Immigration Canada website. While creating your profile you need to provide some basic information like name, address, financial status, education, work experience and NOC.

 

The second step: receiving the invitation

Based on various variables such as age, work experience, language skills, education, etc. Your file will receive a score. The comprehensive rating method, also known as CRS (Comprehensive Rating System), is the name of this scoring method that is unique to the Express Entry system. Your score ranges from 0 to 1200.

 

What is the applicant pool in the Federal Skilled Worker Program? 

Your file will be added to a pool and scored. Of course, this pool is different from the pools you usually use for swimming. In this virtual pool, which is called the pool, there are files of people with different rights and restrictions. Your case is treated in this pool like a fish that a fisherman (immigration office) throws in a net.

The lottery is a lottery that usually takes place twice a month. In these sweepstakes, the federal government selects entrants from a qualified pool and invites them to apply. Consequently, the selection process is competitive rather than random. The probability of being invited increases with better grades.

If your score is lower than the score level selected by the immigration office, you must wait in the application pool until the score level is reduced.

If you and another candidate have the same score, an invitation will be sent to the previous applicant who created his profile and joined the group of applicants. Therefore, it is preferable to open your profile and join the group of candidates after obtaining the language certificate and the evaluation certificate. Then, if you want, you can edit your profile and improve your score by adding additional work experience, improving your language score, etc.

 

What is the right score to get an invitation to the Federal Skilled Worker Program?

Each draw will have a different set of points. As a result, it is not possible to accurately determine what score is acceptable for this software. However, it appears from the lottery procedure that people with a score of 460 or higher are generally eligible for invitations.

 

Step 3: Send the request 

After you receive the invitation, you can upload the required documents to your profile and complete the requested information up to 60 days later. Then at the end you have to pay the fees and register your application.

 

Cost item Applicant Spouse of the applicant Each child
The cost of reviewing the case 850 Canadian dollars 850 Canadian dollars 230 Canadian dollars
The cost of the right to issue permanent residence 515 Canadian dollars 515 Canadian dollars  
The cost of fingerprinting 85 Canadian dollars

If the applicant has a spouse and children, 170 Canadian dollars for the entire family (applicant and spouse and children)

 

Within 24 hours after submitting the application, you will receive an Acknowledgment of Receipt (AOR) letter. This receipt shows that your documents have been received by the Immigration Department and the application has been successfully filed.

 

Fourth step: fingerprinting 

The investigation of this case starts from this point. You can check your profile at any time to check the status of your case and refer to it.

The officer reviews the case to make sure all documents are correct and follows the program's checklist. If the documents are not completed, the officer will refund the money to check the documents and request a refund.

Most people complete this stage between one and two months. A medical examination letter and a fingerprint letter are often issued at the end of this stage.

After receiving the fingerprint letter, those who need to submit fingerprints in accordance with Canadian law must visit visa offices in other countries.

 

Fifth step: Eligibility check

All documents will be reviewed as part of the eligibility review process to determine your eligibility. This method takes a lot of time because the file and its supporting documentation must meet the requirements of the desired program and be checked for accuracy and validity.

This stage often ends up to five months after the previous stage. A number of documents are evaluated in this process, including financial ability letter, work experience letter, job offer letter, visa rejection history, etc.

The officer can ask you for more documents if he believes that further investigation is necessary.

 

Sixth step: Checking the records

The three stages of the background check process are criminalization, security and information exchange. Immigration Services Canada, Canada Border Services Agency and Canada Security Intelligence Agency are responsible for all aspects of this step.

Typically, this stage takes between one and two months. However, if an individual's record is deemed questionable by the relevant authorities, it may take up to a year in some unusual circumstances.

This is the last step before the public announcement of the final decision.

 

Last step: confirmation of permanent residence

Once your case is approved, you will receive a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR). You will now receive a Passport Request Message (PPR) and you will need to submit your passport to your local Canada Visa Office to apply for your visa. A person is allowed to enter Canada before the passport validity or medical examination validity expires.

You have several options to keep up with the progress of the case during review. Through a web form, you can reach the immigration office or request basic information about your case and the visa office online. But ordering GCMS notes is the best option. The officer responds to this note by writing a full description of all the work done on the case. Consult Visa Mondial advisors to order notes.

Skilled Worker Canada

In Canada, there is an urgent demand for specialists and professionals. The main goal of Immigration Canada is to attract new professionals who will support the economic development of Canada. Professionals who choose permanent residence in Canada are very valuable to the economy and workforce of this country. A Canadian Immigrant Visa (Permanent Resident Visa), which allows recipients of the Skilled Worker Immigration Program to immigrate to Canada with their families, is awarded to successful candidates.

As a professional force or an individual, you have various possibilities. If you want to stay in Quebec, you can use the Quebec Skilled Worker Program or you may be able to apply for the Federal Skilled Worker Group. Additionally, you can apply for any provincial immigration program if you are from the province or territory where you wish to reside.

 

Federal Skilled Worker

The federal specialist program is for people who have work experience in certain fields and intend to reside in any of the provinces or regions of Canada other than Quebec.

 

Quebec expert force

Applicants who intend to immigrate to Quebec can be eligible for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program. In this program, your points are calculated and based on that, your chances are measured.

 

Expert force of Canadian provinces

For people who intend to live and work in their province or region, most provinces and regions have created unique specialized forces related to their province. After completing these programs, you can get a provincial nomination certificate. Having this Certificate of Selection usually enables the applicant to immigrate to Canada faster than other schemes.

Canadian experience

Benefits of the Atlantic Canada immigration program

Quebec programs

Every year, many people from all over the world apply to immigrate to Quebec. Immigration Canada evaluates applications using a points system and (if necessary) conducts an interview before issuing a residence visa for Quebec. Every year, this immigration system is subjected to new restrictions and revisions. Quebec's skilled worker immigration program has seen many ups and downs recently and continues to undergo significant changes each year.

Like many other Canadian provinces, Quebec has developed a new framework for hiring skilled workers. Soon, more details about Quebec's Express Entry system will be made public.

The largest metropolitan area in eastern Canada, Quebec, referred to locally as "The Beautiful Province", has a population of about 7,600,000. In Canada, Quebec is one of the three oldest cities, along with Saint John, Pratt Royal and Tedozac. Despite having a history of 400 years, Quebec is a magnificent city with lively areas. This city is home to Institut Laval, the largest French institution in North America. This university is ranked 304th in the world and 18th in Canada.

 

Immigration process to Quebec

 

First step:  Sélection

 The Quebec immigration office checks the documents sent by the applicant according to the regulations of the state of Quebec and issues the CSQ certificate (Cetificat de Sélection du Québec) after acceptance  .

 

Second stage:  Admission

Acceptance in the selection phase does not guarantee residency. The federal government must complete the following steps, such as medical examinations and security checks, before issuing a Canadian visa.

If you or your spouse are suitable for living and working in Quebec and you meet the necessary conditions, you can apply for a residence visa. The Quebec Immigration Agency sets important criteria.

 

To be eligible to immigrate this way you must do the following.


• Plan to live and work in one of the cities of Quebec.
• Have an approved academic degree and meet the requirements of the province of Quebec. (If your field of study is in one of the required fields, you can check the other conditions of this type of immigration, and if your field is not one of the required fields, you can apply if you reach the quorum, but the file You will not be a priority.
• You must have a work experience that allows you to enter the labor market in Quebec. (at least 6 months)
• If you need to obtain a score in the language section, you must have at least a B2 score in one of the valid French language tests. •
Your ability to integrate with Quebec society socially and financially in such a way that you can work in the desired field.

Note: For this strategy, proficiency in French is very important. In Quebec society, communication is essential and primarily done in French. Moreover, speaking this language shows acceptance in this particular society and culture. The Quebec government has created facilities inside and outside of Quebec to help newcomers acquire the language and enroll in French language classes.

 

To earn points in this section, the applicant must have studied in one of the fields that meet the requirements of the Quebec labor market.

 

Group A  courses of 12 points for the main applicant and 4 points for the spouse

Group B  fields of 9 points for the main applicant and 3 points for the spouse

Group C  fields of 6 points for the main applicant and 2 points for the spouse

Group D  fields of 2 points for the main applicant and 1 point for the spouse

Group E, F, G  fields, 0 points for the main applicant and 0 points for the spouse

 

The officer asks about the dates of important life events (such as work, marriage or education) as well as other details such as academic materials, while the applicant's original documents are compared with their translations during the interview. The course completed in the college, job descriptions, etc. are requested. Usually, more work-related questions are asked, and sometimes unexpected questions, such as drawing a map of the workplace or calculating the number of company personnel, may be asked to verify the accuracy of the applicant's answers.

Note: Most likely, the cases after 2015 will not include interviews. Because 6 points related to adaptability were removed from the Quebec scoring system on August 5, 2015.

The following scenarios best describe the purpose of the interview given the following:

Scrutiny of documents

Assessment of French and English skills

Evaluation of the applicant's points to determine his acceptance or rejection

Since there are many officers who each have their own interviewing preferences and styles, each interview is typically unique from the others.

However, in general, a number of things affect how the interview process goes:

French language

The ability to speak French is undoubtedly the most important thing on the day of the interview. If the applicant speaks good French, the officer will often accept them more readily and avoid asking about Quebec or Canada.

Authenticity of documents

Document accuracy is also very important to the police because they are Canadians and honesty is a core value for them. In addition, since these experts have a lot of experience in interviewing Iranians, they are aware of how to verify the authenticity of documents and how to verify applicants' documents by the relevant centers. For example, we can refer to the correctness of the applicant's insurance history. Although the insurance website is in Farsi, it has been observed many times that the officer refers to it to check the correctness of the insurance information. You should be honest and avoid trying to mislead the officer during the interview.

Resume and job searches

These factors may be given less importance, but having a quality resume and conducting relevant job searches can influence the officer's perception of the candidate. A good work history shows the officer that the applicant is dedicated to his profession and will have no problem finding a job once he arrives in Canada. Because resume plays an important role in employment in Canada. In addition, job searches demonstrate to the officer that the applicant is fully aware of Quebec's employment conditions, laws and regulations and has immigrated with this information. You may find the emploiquebec website useful to start your search.
