Work Permit Application

Work permit is another form of temporary residence. To fill the labour gaps in Canada, each day the employers are hiring foreign workers.

Employees must understand that this is not a permanent residence. There is a separate way to apply for Permanent residence. We are discussing temporary work permit based on LMIA in this article.

Work permit applications must meet number of requirements before a prospective applicant can apply, they are given as under:

  • Employee must ensure that the employer has procured the LMIA for the said position
  • Employee needs to have a copy of LMIA before applying
  • Employee must prove that he is competent enough to perform the duties specified for that job.

The application must be accompanied by the required documentation. The general requirement of documentation can be classified as under:

  • Curriculum Vitae

  • Copy of LMIA (Named) where the employee name is mentioned who is applying
  • Education proof that exhibits that employee has acquired the skills and knowledge before getting into that job
