Canadian Work Permit Processing Times

The length of time or Work Permit processing times it takes to process work permit applications may vary depending on the location where the application is submitted.

A visa officer can refuse a work permit application if the foreign worker is found to be inadmissible for any of the following reasons:

  • has failed a medical examination
  • has a criminal record
  • is determined to be a security risk
  • has not met the criteria and standards described in the job offer provided by the employer
  • has not satisfied the visa officer that he or she will leave Canada at the end of the period of employment

The visa office will inform the foreign worker of its decision in writing.  During the overseas processing of work permits, employers should maintain regular contact with recruited foreign workers in order to be kept up to date on the status of their applications.

If their overseas application for a work permit is approved in principle, foreign workers will receive a letter explaining that they are eligible for a work permit. It is important to note that this letter is not a work permit. Foreign workers are required to present the letter to a Border Services Officer at a port of entry when seeking to enter Canada.

    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.

    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.
