Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
Are you asking about applying for a work permit from within Canada?And you are here without legal status?
I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. As I am a lawyer in Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.
I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.
You cannot apply for a work permit from within Canada.
You will need to go back home to apply for the permit.
That is the case even if you were here legally on a visitor's visa.
But you can certainly ask your potential employer to start the process and apply for the Labour Market Impact Assessment which is the first step.
Does that answer your question?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
