Working in Canada is one of the easiest ways to earn opportunities to stay here. And Canada is hungry for workers like you. Every year more than 300,000 people enter Canada as a temporary foreign worker.
It’s important to know all of your options.
Unless you are a member of some very specific immigration classes (i.e., you are self-employed, or coming into Canada under a sponsorship program) securing a job is usually going to be your first step to securing residency. Once you’ve received a job offer from Canadian employer gaining a Temporary Work Permit is going to be your next step.
But getting a work permit is not straightforward. There are multiple paths that you can take to reach the goal. If you choose the wrong path your opportunity could pass you buy. If you choose the right path but fail to fill out the paperwork correctly or don’t provide some of the documentation you need to provide then you can create more delays. And since every employment situation is unique it pays to have a team of experts on your side, people who will help you navigate this complex legal process.
