Canadian Work Permit

What are my Chances to Secure Work Permit in Canada?

Due to the strict rules and regulations, getting work visa is not easy. Every year thousands of people apply for work permits and only fraction of them are successful. Although, many cities of Canada are under the developmental stage and they require professionals to strengthen their local economies, the Federal government is obligated to ensure that only those people get work permits who are able to secure suitable jobs in their professions.

I Want to Work in Canada? Do I Require a Work Visa?

In most cases, foreign nationals require work visa to legally work in Canada. This is a legal document that is issued by the government of Canada. The work visa is a temporary document and will require you to renew it if you would like to remain longer.

You May Not Require Work Visa if:

There are some professionals that do not require work visa in Canada. These are usually those professionals who come to visit for a short time under a specific program. The following list of professionals usually do not require work permit.

  • Business Visitors
  • Performing Artists
  • Clergy
  • Truck/Ship workmen
  • Athletes
  • Foreign Diplomats
  • Military Personnel

I Am a US Citizen? Do I Require a Work Permit?

As a US citizen, you can travel to Canada without a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV). However, to legally work in Canada, you essentially require a work permit. However, things are much easier if you are a US national. Thanks to the NAFTA agreement, certain professions can easily acquire a work permit. To qualify for a work permit under the NAFTA agreement, you must:

  • Be a citizen of the US
  • Be looking for a job that lies under the NAFTA's list of profession
  • Have a letter of job offer from a Canadian employer
  • Be able to prove that you are qualified for the job by showing your education and work experience

    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.

    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!

    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.
