Process To Get Canada Work Visa

To apply for a Canadian work visa, follow these steps

Determine your eligibility

Check if you are eligible to apply for a Canadian work visa.

Your eligibility depends on factors such as your nationality, the type of work you will be doing, and your intended length of stay in Canada.

Find a job offer

Find a Canadian employer who is willing to hire you and is authorized to do so.

The employer will need to provide you with a job offer letter that includes details such as the job title, duties, salary, and length of the job.

Apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

In most cases, your employer will need to obtain an LMIA from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) to show that there are no Canadian workers available to fill the job.

The LMIA process can take several months, so you should apply for it as soon as possible.

Obtain a work permit

Once your employer has obtained an LMIA, you can apply for a work permit.

You can apply for a work permit online or on paper, depending on your country of residence.

The application fee is CAD 155.

Wait for processing

After submitting your application, you need to wait for the processing time.

The processing time may vary based on your country of residence and the type of work permit you are applying for.

Submit biometrics

If required, you will need to submit biometrics (fingerprints and photograph) at a Visa Application Centre.

Wait for a decision

After submitting your application and biometrics, you need to wait for a decision on your work permit application.

If approved, the work permit will be issued to you.

Travel to Canada

After receiving your work permit, you can travel to Canada to start your job.
