【Do you want to work in Canada right away? This is how to get a Canadian Work Permit quickly and easily】(Updated April 14, 2022)

“I want to come to Canada and start working as soon as possible!”  We hear these voices from some of our clients.

You want to start your life in Canada with the simplest paperwork possible and without waiting, don’t you?

Yumi Ueda introduces her recommended Work Permit that can help you start working in Canada quickly and avoid complicated procedures.  These types of Work Permits may also lead to becoming permanent residents in the future.

First of all, the basic premise is:

Check if you are eligible for an LMIA exempt Work Permit

An Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), which many foreign workers must go through to obtain a Work Permit, is a lengthy, time-consuming, and frankly, rather hectic process.

If you can get a Work Permit without going through an LMIA, it’s so much the better!

The following are an LMIA-exempt Work Permit examples.  Does any of these apply to you?

1. Working Holiday Work Permit

Applicable to those between the ages of 18 and 30.  As a convenient Open Work Permit that allows you to work for any employer in Canada, there is no reason not to use this limited-time Work Permit while you are young.

2. Intra-company Transferee Work Permit

This program is for transferring from a foreing company to a Canadian affiliate and working in a managerial or professional position.

By applying at the airport instead of at the Embassy, you can save months of processing time.

3. Global Talent Stream

Must have a full-time offer from a Canadian company for an IT position or a unique and specialized job.  You may also be eligible if you can contribute to the growth of the Canadian company and if your employer can obtain a recommendation from a Designated Partners.

4. Provincial Nominee Program (“PNP”)

Suppose you are considered to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory by obtaining a job offer from a Canadian company, and nominated to the province.  In that case, you may begin working in Canada before getting permanent residence.

By applying at the airport instead of at the Embassy, you can save several months of processing time.

5. Post Graduate Work Permit (“PGWP”)

PGWP allows students who have graduated from eligible Canadian designated learning institutions to obtain an Open Work Permit and gain Canadian work experience.

If you aim for permanent residence through studying abroad, it will be easier to work after graduation when you choose a school that offers a Post Graduate Work Permit.

6. Spousal Open Work Permit

Spouses of individuals working in Canada or international students may quickly receive an Open Work Permit. Therefore, when comparing your spouse’s permanent residence application scores with yours, assume your spouse is more likely to be accepted.  In that case, your spouse’s work history could be used for the permanent residence application in Canada.

There are other LMIA-exemption Work Permit depending on the type of your job.
