Work in Canada
Do you want to work in Canada?
FARHA CONSULTING assists you during the process.
Foreign workers and professionals: Canada is looking for skilled workers. To work in Canada, you will need to obtain a temporary work permit.
As soon as you get a job offer from a Canadian company, you can apply, and we will be there to guide you.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF WORK PERMIT
Standard work permit
The standard work permit is, as the name suggests, the most common document. Each year, nearly 200,000 foreign workers come to Canada with this permit issued by the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) services.
NAFTA work permits
US and Mexican citizens can apply for a NAFTA work permit, as provided for in the North American Free Trade Agreement. The advantage: companies do not have to carry out a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This agreement only concerns 3 types of workers: the listed professions, internal company transfers, businesspeople and investors.
International experience Canada
Through mutual agreements with other countries, Canada promotes the mobility of young workers. This program concerns young people between 18 and 35 years old. This can take three forms:
- Holiday / Work Visa
- Young professionals
- Co-op internships abroad.
The duration may vary depending on the form chosen and the agreement between each country.
For intercompany transfers, we assist both companies and employees in the process.
You can find more details on our FOREIGN COMPANIES page.
Post-diploma work permit
Are you a graduate of a Canadian institution? If the institution is referenced by the post-diploma work permit, then you can apply for it.
You can find more details on our STUDY IN CANADA page.
BE EXEMPTED FROM A LABOR MARKET IMPACT ASSESSMENT (LMIA)
For any employer, the first step is to obtain a labor market impact study, with a positive result. However, there are a few situations where this is not necessary:
- International agreements (ex: NAFTA)
- entrepreneurs Candidate / self-employed workers
- Transfers within a company
- International exchange programs
- Dependents of foreign workers
- Religious workers
- Academics (researchers, guest lecturers and visiting professors.)
- Provincial LMIA exemptions
If the company you are going to work for falls into one of these categories, then you will not need a labor market impact study.
