Work Permit LMIA Duration Period Video

Posted in Work Permit Videos

Applying for a Canadian Work Permit? Unsure what the duration period is or how long you can apply for? If so, watch our video and find out how long a Work Permit is valid for and what steps you can take once your Work Permit expires in Canada.

Work Permit LMIA Duration Period Video

With the new LMIA assessment coming into force immigration officers will no longer issue Work Permits longer than a 4 year period. Most Work Permits have a cap of four year maximum, unless your occupation falls under the exemption code. The reason for this change is that four years is sufficient time for the employer to decide either to offer the Foreign Worker permanent full time position to continue with PR application or to hire a Canadian individual for the same position at the organization. So if you have a Foreign Worker in which their Work Permit has reached its 4 year cap you can either hire the foreign worker for the full time position or start training a Canadian candidate so that the organization is not left hanging once the Work Permit expires. If 3 of your 4 year Work Permit has elapsed you can apply for the one year extension. If you decide to apply after the 4 year period you can still get a full extension of the Work Permit.

If you have any further questions regarding the LMIA duration period, please feel free to contact us as we are always happy to help.

    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.

    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.
