How to apply for Canada Work visa or Short Term visa?

How to apply for Canada Work visa or Short Term visa? Canada has the most modern immigration system in the world in express entry. Launched in January 2015, it is designed by Canadian authorities to better align immigrants’ skills with labor market needs.

Obtaining a Canadian work permit is a multi-step process that can take several weeks. There are several ways to secure a work permit. In Canada, depending on questionable nationality, occupation, and intended work, there may be possibilities to expedite the process.

To be granted temporary work permits, Canadian employers will be required to provide employment workers with a proposal number issued by Employment or Social Development Canada (ESDC) or Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to foreign workers. Depending on their country of citizenship, foreign workers may be required to obtain a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to travel to Canada.

  • Step 1: Employer applies for Labour Market Impact Assessment, if necessary. – Canadian employers who wish to hire a temporary foreign employee must obtain a Neutral or Positive Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from ESDC, which satisfies the ESDC that a Canadian citizen or permanent resident is required to work. These work permits are commonly referred to as LMIA Exempt Work Permits and include the following:
    • International agreements, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), or the Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP),
    • Allowing international students studying in Canada to meet academic requirements known as co-op placements,
    • To allow holders of certain work permits and study permits as well as spouses / common-law partners living in Canada to work in Canada,
    • Granting permission for charitable or religious work,
    • Some Permanent Residence Applicants in Canada,
    • Some migrant workers and their dependents in Canada on employer-specific work permits who are facing abuse, or who are at risk of abuse.
  • Step 2: The employer makes a temporary job offer. – Once a positive or neutral LMIA is granted, Canadian employers must provide a copy of the LMIA approval letter along with a detailed job offer letter to the foreign employee who will need those documents to apply for a work permit. 
  • Step 3: Foreign worker applies for work permit. – With an LMIA approval letter, job offer letter (and CAQ if applicable), the foreign employee can submit an application for a Canadian temporary work permit to the IRCC. Depending on their country of citizenship, the foreign worker may need to obtain a TRV to travel to Canada, and therefore must submit a temporary work permit application to a Canadian visa office overseas.
  • Step 4: Work permit is issued. – A Canadian temporary work permit will be filed by a Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) officer when the foreign worker arrives in Canada. Temporary work permits can be issued for periods ranging from a few days to a few years.  Most Canadian work permits are employer specific, otherwise referred to as “closed” work permits, and are granted for a specific job in Canada. As a result, a foreign worker can only work for the employer specified on the work permit. For example, if the foreign worker gets a separate employment and does not have permanent resident status, the foreign worker must obtain a new work permit before working or working in Canada.
