Sponsorship for Canada Work visa
Looking for work in Canada? The employer-sponsored visa is a temporary foreign worker programme that provides an easier route than independent immigration to Canada. While the latter can take anywhere from six months to a year, the former can be issued within three to six weeks.
Often employers use this visa to bring in senior executives or to fill job positions that require highly skilled qualifications that are not easily available in the Canadian labour market. Some of the employer-sponsored job positions that are easily available are senior managers, exchange professors and post-doctoral fellows.
For this visa, all you need to do is secure a job with a Canadian employer, who will handle the application process with CIC. Employers are required to prove that your skills are unavailable within the country and this could be in the form of no response following advertisements for job seekers with particular skill sets. Employers have to obtain a labour market opinion.
(LMO) to hire a temporary foreign worker. To find out if you need a LMO
It is imperative that your skill sets, qualifications, experience match those required by the job position; knowledge of English language; and relevant licence required for the role. Most foreign workers can work in Canada for a maximum period of four years, provided your employer sponsors you that long.
Though many employers advertise on recruitment sites, a good source to begin the job hunt is the Canadian government’s official site: http://www.workingincanada.gc.ca. Apart from this, try and tap into your friend network and work associates. You could even try getting in touch with employers directly to find out if they have any job openings that require your skills.
