Frequently Asked Questions
Is it possible to convert my Visitor status to Work permit status once I am in Canada?
International travelers who are visiting Canada and obtain a valid job offer will be able to apply for and receive a work permit without leaving the country. Visitors applying under this public policy and who have held a work permit within the last 12 months may also request interim work authorization to begin working for their new employer sooner. This policy is valid till February 28, 2025.
To be eligible to apply, an applicant looking to benefit from this temporary public policy must:
- have valid status in Canada as a visitor on the day they apply.
- have a job offer that is supported by a labour market impact assessment (LMIA) or an LMIA-exempt offer of employment.
- submit an application for an employer-specific work permit no later than February 28, 2025.
- meet all other standard admissibility criteria.
Why are job offers important?
The first step in obtaining a Temporary Work Permit is receiving a Job offer which is permanent and on indeterminate basis. The quickest way to enter and work in Canada is with a LMIA-based work permit. The Canadian employer of a Work Permit holder in Canada can offer the individual a permanent full-time job of indeterminate length and the new job offer will be considered arranged employment in Canada under the Federal Skilled Worker Class.
Your job offer must:
- be recent.
- be in writing.
- not be from an embassy, high commission, or consulate in Canada.
- job offers should not be from in-eligible list of employer.
- set out details of the job they’re offering you, such as:
- your pay and deductions
- your duties
- the conditions of employment, like your hours of work
A work permit on its own is not a job offer, even if it is an open work permit.
Your job offer must also meet other criteria to be valid under the Express Entry program you qualify. You earn up to 50 to 200 points for a valid job offer.
How can I make my application stronger when filing a Work permit application?
The answer will come in two parts,
If you are applying from Outside Canada
Once you have the documents and information you need from your employer, you and your family members must:
- apply online from outside Canada.
- submit a complete application, which includes:
- a medical exam (if needed)
- Find out if you need a medical exam and book it before you apply so you can include it with your application.
- police certificates (check your local visa office requirements)
- certified translations of documents that aren’t in English or French
- processing fees
- a medical exam (if needed)
- submit your biometrics results within 2 weeks of submitting your application (if needed)
If you don’t need an LMIA
If you don’t need an LMIA, you may be eligible for 2-week processing if you meet all these requirements:
- You’re applying from outside Canada.
- Your job is classified under Training, Education, Experience and Responsibilities (TEER) category 0 or 1 of the National Occupational Classification (NOC) system.
- Your employer has submitted an offer of employment using the Employer Portal and paid the employer compliance fee.
What happens if my application is rejected?
If the IRCC refuses your application to come to Canada, you can apply again at any time, unless your decision letter says you cannot do so. You should only apply again if you can include information that you didn’t include before.
If you had legal status and lost it (for example, if your work permit expired and you did not renew it in time), you have a small amount of time to re-apply. Read your decision letter for further details.
If you are working with us, we will try to reapply for you by putting forward stronger points as to why you should be a part of the Canadian work force.
How do I improve my chances of getting permanent residency in Canada?
The best way to improve your chances of getting permanent residency is through:
- Increasing your IELTS score.
- Trying to get a job offer that is backed by LMIA.
- Completing a good 2-3 years’ Canadian experience in a TEER 0, 1 or 2 job.
- Having more than 3 years of foreign experience
- Get your education equivalency certificate for Canada – More the education more is the points under the system.
What is the RCIC number and why is it important to check it before hiring an immigration consultant?
Checking the RCIC number is very important when it comes to hiring an immigration consultant. The major reason being that there are many fraudulent consultants trying to scam people. In order to ensure that your application is in safe hands, you first need to check their eligibility. Luckily, Sharkish Immigration has a registered consultant, Miss. Heena Verma who is well experienced and known to work with the most difficult applications. She is backed by a team who is efficient and lays great emphasis on customer service. Go to https://college-ic.ca/protecting-the-public/find-an-immigration-consultant and type in your Consultant’s RCIC number and verify before signing up with them.
What is considered as Common-law relationship and how is it different from marriage?
A common-law partnership is defined as a couple that has cohabited for at least a year in a conjugal relationship in the context of immigration. When two people can show proof of their cohabitation in a conjugal partnership, a common-law connection is established. Before submitting an application to CPC-M, the applicant must demonstrate that they have been living together as common-law partners for at least a year.
A common-law relationship must be proven in each case, based on the circumstances, because it is technically a de facto relationship. A marriage, on the other hand, is a de jure relationship, meaning that it has been recognized by the law.
When is the best time to come to Canada for further studies, after completing 12th grade or Bachelor’s?
There is no one answer to this question. If you are coming in after 12th grade, we suggest you try immigrating to Canadian provinces that have promising Provincial Nominee Programs that would help support you for Permanent Residency even in the absence of a college degree or enroll for a bachelor’s degree in a Designated Learning Institutes in Canada or any skilled foreign experience on your resume will add up your points for PR. However, if you wish to immigrate to bigger cities in provinces like Ontario, it would be best if you came in after completing your Bachelor’s degree or even Masters along with a minimum of 1 year’s foreign work experience. This would increase your points substantially thus helping you attain your permanent residency in Canada through Express Entry or any Provincial nominee programs.
