Significant Benefit Work Permit Requirements

Posted in Significant Benefit Work Permit

The Significant Benefit Work Permit is a unique type of work permit that requires the applicant to demonstrate certain criteria that would be considered beneficial to Canadians. Unlike most other work permits, this type of work permit is considered Labour Market Opinion exempt provided that it can satisfy an officer that it meets the criteria.

This type of application is very document intensive and requires a great deal of preparation in advance. In order to be eligible for a significant benefit work permit, as the applicant, you must consider the following criteria and demonstrate that you would:

  • create or maintain significant social, cultural, or economic benefits or opportunities for Canadian citizens or permanent residents;
  • create or maintain reciprocal employment of Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada in other countries;
  • be engaged in work that is designated to be performed by a foreign national on the basis of the following criteria:
  • Work related to a research, educational or training program, or limited access to the Canadian labour market is necessary for reasons of public policy relating to the competitiveness of Canada's academic institutions or economy;
  • is of a religious or charitable nature.

You will need to not only demonstrate examples of previous work completed and how this work will impact Canada, but also demonstrate your intended goals in Canada and how you plan to achieve them.

This action plan will be used to account for your time spent in Canada should you be successful in obtaining this work permit.

As the investor and entrepreneur category of permanent residence is currently closed, this type of application (though temporary) may be a viable solutions for those seeking entry into Canada based on their current business concepts and financial stability.

Again, this application requires know-how and understanding of applicable rules while anticipating what an officer will want to see in order to be satisfied that the criteria have been met.

It is highly recommended that you seek legal representation if you are considering a significant benefit work permit.

    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.

    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!

    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.
