Canada Work Permit Duration

If you have job offer with an employer in Canada you are eligible to apply for the Work Permit, depending on your country of citizenship and purpose of work you may be exempt from the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Due to the LMIA in effect the duration of the Work Permit being issued has changed. Work Permits used to get issued for a 4 year period but now they are only issued for 1 year. So whatever the position may be especially lower skilled occupations get only a maximum of 1 year from Service Canada.

This is really important especially for perspective employers, if you are interested in getting this candidate or applicant for longer than 1 year then perhaps you might consider offering the applicant a permanent full time position and this way while you have the applicant here on a Work Permit for 1 year you can subsequently also process a PR application.

LMIA and the whole Work Permit process can be extremely lengthy so you should consider thinking about the future, just a LMIA could take about a couple of days depending on the high skills or high wages you pay up to 3-4months and from there apply for the Work Permit and the processing time for the Work Permit depends on the applicants country of citizenship. Certain citizenships are processed fast while other such as Philippines processing time can take 8 to 12 months. These are some things you need to keep in mind as the applicant and the employer that you are set for the future.

    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.

    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.
