Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question.I cannot assist you in the sense that I cannot act for you. I can answer your questions. Would you like for me to go ahead?
When you ask about immigrating do you mean permanently or just for a temporary time?
You will need a job offer first.The way it works isn't really that complicated.What has to happen is this:Your potential employer has to apply to the government for what is called a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). What this entails is the government reviewing the job market to ensure that there is a shortage of Canadians to fill your job. You cannot take a job away from a Canadian. So, you have to have a skill, or work experience, in an area where Canada needs workers and there aren't' enough Canadians who have that skill or work experience.If that's the case then the government will give the employer a positive LMIA.Then you can apply for the work permit.You will need to prove your credentials and also need to undergo background, medical and criminal checks.If all goes well you will get the permit.Here's the webpage that has all the information you will need including the forms and information about the fees:http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/work/index.asp
Does that help as a starting point?
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.
I don't know what the job market is like where you hope to work. I cannot know if the employer will get a positive LMIA or not.
Your best next step would be to retain an immigration lawyer in the province you are interested in. I am not permitted to act for your myself.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
