We do permit and renewal applications under the Temporary Immigration Categories including:
Temporary Resident Visas (TRV)
a.k.a. travel visas
Every year Canada welcomes thousands of visitors as tourists. If a person wishes to visit Canada and they are not from a Visitor Visa Exempt country, they must submit a Visitor Visa application to a Canadian embassy, high commission or consulate abroad.
Citizens of certain countries require a Visitor Visa to visit Canada. To find out whether your country is one of them, visit TRV Countries/Territories.
We can help you figure out whether your organization’s HR practices are adequate, legally compliant and effective. By taking an objective look at your policies, practices, procedures and strategies, we can get to the heart of what really matters to you and your team.
Most foreign nationals who wish to work in Canada must obtain a temporary work permit. These documents are usually valid for a specific job, employer and time period.
Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
Overview of LMIA work permit:
The Canadian employer applies to ESDC/Service Canada for a LMIA by providing proof of recruitment and other supporting documents
WHEN the LMIA IS APPROVED, the foreign national takes the LMIA and applies for a work permit at the Canadian Embassy,High Commission or Consulate in his/her home country
CIC office abroad issues the foreign worker a work permit approval if they meet all the necessary requirements (such as health, character, security, job qualifications and other country-specific criteria)
The foreign national from a visa-exempt country applies for a work permit at the port of entry
International Agreement/Special Categories
There are various international agreements and special programs under which a foreign worker may apply for a work permit. Some of these do not require approval of the ESDC/Service Canada office and may be obtained at the port of entry.
A business visitor is someone who comes to Canada to engage in international business activities without directly entering the Canadian labour market. Foreign nationals may qualify as a business visitor if they are visiting Canada temporarily to look for new business opportunities, to invest or to advance existing business relationships.
