Canada Work Permit Competition Video

Posted in Work Permit Videos

Want to work in Canada? Not sure which Work Permit you should apply for? Wondering if your occupation is exempt from obtaining an Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)? Watch our video below to learn if your require a Work Permit to Canada and what the immigration officer looks for when assessing your Work Permit application.

Canada Work Permit Competition 

Work permits involve many factors, such as whether the activity you are performing in Canada competes directly with the Canadian Labour Market. What this means basically has the employer attempted to hire a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident prior to offering the job to a foreign worker? So when you arrive at the Port of Entry the immigration officer will ask certain question making sure that you do not enter the Canadian Labour and if you do you would have to apply for a Work Permit and perhaps go through a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). For example, if your activities are something that is extremely competitive in Canada and is something that Canadians can possibly do, then most likely you would have to apply for a Work Permit before you can enter Canada and do that particular activity. This is something you will need to consider before making the attempt at a Consulate or Port of Entry. If the officer believes you need an LMIA, then your employer has to demonstrate recruitment efforts which means they have attempted to hire a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident prior to hiring a foreign worker. Once the Positive LMIA is received the foreign worker can apply for the Work Permit either at the consulate or Port of Entry depending on your country of citizen.

    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.

    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.

    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.
