Faster Visa Processing for work permits for Immigrants in Canada
The Immigration process can be time consuming and exhausting, especially when concerned with matters of work permits. To simplify that process, the IRCC or the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada have offered simplified and quicker processing times for certain cases of work visa with applications being processed as quick as two weeks. Provided there are certain caveats attached to this conditions which are:
- Being exempt from requiring an LMIA (Labor Market Impact Assessment).
- Applying from a foreign Canadian embassy under specified skill categories.
- Paying the compliance fees and providing evidence of application from a foreign embassy.
Visa Exemption for special categories of Skilled Professionals Immigrating to Canada
Under this condition, skilled professionals whose job category lies under the specified NOC classification categories (Type 0 or level A) are exempted from obtaining a work permit provided their assignment duration is limited to a 15 continuous day or less period once every six months or 30 continuous days or less period every 12 months. This will simplify the immigration process for short-term employees.
It is also stipulated that foreign scientists or researchers can participate in a project for up to 120 days consecutively once every 12 months provided the invitation to participate is given by an affiliated and publicly-funded institution.
Dedicated Service Channels (DSC’s) for Companies to help them hire Immigrants
Dedicated Service Channels are there to help companies who have a vested financial interest in the country. They provide a dedicated dossier of services helps big employers simplify their immigration needs and assists them in hiring global talent.
Quicker and Facilitated LMIA’s- Making Immigration to Canada simpler
LMIA’s are used to verify the need for a temporary worker and there are no Canadian Nationals available for the position. The IRCC has stated their intentions of bringing down the time requirements to below two weeks for highly skilled foreign nationals who are experts in the fields with a shortage of workers.
There has also been an introduction of a Global Talent Stream which helps employers hire sought-after talent from two categories:
- Category A: Being referred to the Stream by an affiliated partner.
- Category B: To hire expert foreign nationals for jobs listed on global talents occupation list.
Global Skills Strategy is a great initiative which is certain to benefit employers and skilled foreign nationals alike. Improved mobility of talent helps the companies to grown and stimulates the economy as well.
