Answer: It is an important piece of document, that also goes by the name – work permit Canada. This document is issued by the government of Canada, allowing a foreigner, such as a US citizen, to temporarily, but legally live and work in the country for a certain period of time.
Answer: No. Subject to certain conditions, there are some people who don’t need, or are exempt from possessing a Work Visa in Canada (subject to some specific conditions):
Ship or Truck Personnel
Performing Artists (only under some specific circumstances)
Designated Foreign Sellers and Buyers
Note: You will find other exemptions regarding the same, listed in the Canadian Immigration Regulations.
Answer: It is possible. If you work there for at least 2 years under a valid Work Permit, you might get yourself eligible for PR status under a Provincial Nominee Program or the Canadian Experience Class, depending upon your language proficiency and your job classification.
Answer: Generally speaking, there are 2 steps to the procedure for obtaining a Work Visa in Canada. And, here they are:
FROM THE ESDC (EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT CANADA) DEPARTMENT
Only if and when the ESDC is satisfied with the efforts put in by the prospective employer in order to hire a local worker, will they confirm or approve the offer of employment for the said job position to the foreign worker, and further issue them an LMIA letter.
Once the ESDC has issued the LMIA, the foreign worker will get invited to apply for a Canadian Work Permit or a Work Visa at a Canadian Embassy, High Commission, or Consulate outside of Canada. In certain cases, the person might be required to be interviewed by a visa officer.If the visa officer seems satisfied that employing this foreign worker will, in no way, have an adverse effect on the employment scene for Canadians in the country, and that this person qualifies for the said job position – only then will a Canada Work Permit be issued to the foreign worker.
Note: Sometimes, applicants from some specific countries are required to go through medical examinations.
Not everyone requires an LMIA to apply for a Canadian Work Permit Visa.
