Temporary Worker

Canada is home to various foreign nationals who seek a better life, utilizing their knowledge, skill and experience to seek employment prospects. Canada possesses a robust and multicultural economy with a premium level of occupational protection, competitive salaries with limitless growth opportunities.

You have the opportunity to immigrate to Canada and become a permanent resident through work permit under programs like:

  1. Temporary Foreign Worker Program (LMIA-required, LMIA-Exempt and Open Work Permits)
  2. CEC (Canadian Experience Class).
  3. PNP (Provincial Nominee Program)
  4. Caregiver Program (though this has gone through a lot of updates)
  5. Other national and international temporary worker’s program

However, there are a series of eligibility prerequisites that you must meet.

Firstly, it will depend on your professional skill as a worker, which will determine your opportunity for a Canadian employer job offer. Also, with some job offer at hand, the Canadian employer must apply for what is called LMIA i.e., Labor Market Impact Assessment. This means the government has to determine if your prospective employer can hire you as a foreigner to fill the job.

If given approval, then you will be issued a work permit, which after working in Canada under the work permit for a period of time, you are eligible to apply for permanent residency.
