NAFTA Work Permit Canada Video

Posted in NAFTA Work Permit Videos

In this video, we outline how the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) allows qualified American and Mexican professionals to work in Canada without possibly obtaining a Labour Market Opinion. The video discusses what your job offer letter needs to mention as well as how to submit your application at the port of entry. Watch our video below for additional information on NAFTA Work Permits.

NAFTA Work Permit Canada

The NAFTA agreement exempts applicant from going through a longer process which is a labour market opinion. For more information on labour market opinion you can visit our website. The NAFTA work permit is a work permit that could be done at the port of entry same day or could also be done at the consulate. Current processing times at the consulates are about 6 to 8 weeks.

There is a list of occupations that will demonstrate that you qualify under the NAFTA agreement for example, computer system analysts are on this list. And each of these occupations have their own requirements for example some of them require you to have X amount of years of experience in that industry or they require a degree or both. Depending what your occupation is we would have to determine what the qualifications for you to be eligible for the NAFTA agreement.

Some of our clients who fall under the NAFTA agreement would like to come to Canada immediately, and they don’t want to wait the lengthy processing at the consulate. We file an application at the temporary foreign worker unit which is an officer who renders an opinion on an application, this opinion is very critical when we send you to the border and face an immigration officer with their questioning. In addition, with this opinion we will include in their other documentation to prove to the immigration officer that yes you are indeed an individual who is exempt from the labour market opinion and your occupation that’s being offered in Canada falls under the NAFTA agreement.

With Akrami and Associates there is always a way!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.
