Work Permit

With Canada being a hub of diversity, securing a work permit opens up a world of opportunities to connect with people from all corners of the globe. From open work permits that allow holders to work for any employer in Canada to employer-specific permits or closed work permits that tie the worker to a specific job and company, there are options suited for different situations and needs. Additionally, programs like the International Experience Canada (IEC) offer opportunities for young professionals from select

countries to gain valuable work experience in Canada through categories such as Working Holiday or Young Professional. Moreover, spouses and common-law partners of post-graduation work permit holders may be eligible to apply for an open work permit as well.

As exciting as it may sound, securing a Canadian work permit can be challenging as the applicants are required to meet specific eligibility criteria set by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This can include proof of a valid job offer from a Canadian employer, demonstrating sufficient funds to support oneself during their stay, and meeting health and security requirements. Understanding these requirements and preparing a strong application is crucial for success in obtaining a Canadian work permit.

Our previous express entry application was declined, so we wanted to work with a regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant. We found Hassan through the directory of Immigration consultants. Due to the pandemic, our express entry option had a very high waiting period, so he suggested going through the PNP process and applying through the Global Talent Stream pathway for experienced IT applicants. In spite of the longer process, since you must first get acceptance from the province you are applying to, we were still able to get our COPR within 12 months from start to finish. He consulted us properly throughout the whole process and wrote our Letter of Explanation (LoE) with great expertise and calmness. He has our endorsement as an Immigration consultant as he is a good communicator and knowledgeable.
