Work permits are issued only for employment that is temporary. In some circumstances, work permits can be extended from inside Canada.
The fastest way to come to Canada is on a temporary work permit. Usually you can be in Canada within weeks after you apply, if not sooner.
Before offering you a job, your potential Canadian employer may have to demonstrate that efforts were made to hire Canadian residents for your intended position, but that those efforts were unsuccessful.
Arranged Employment is based on a permanent Canadian job offer of indeterminate length. You do not begin to work in Canada until you receive your Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa.
- Your potential Canadian employer does not have to demonstrate that Canadian residents could not be found for your intended position.
- Priority processing at all Canadian Immigration Visa Offices of your application for Permanent Residence in Canada within the Express Entry System. You will usually receive your visa in less than one year.
- You will receive up to 600 points under the Federal Skilled Worker or Federal Skilled Trades category of Canada immigration.
None, really. It just won’t get you to Canada as quickly as a work permit.
