“Working on Canada”
Thousands of qualified temporary visa holders enjoy employment in Canada with hopes of obtaining permanent status to better the lives of their families. The good news is, we can help an individual with the appropriate education, skills and/or work experience to be a Permanent Resident of Canada. The reality is, that these visas are very limited and the majority of those whom apply may not be accepted.
After receiving the visa, the applicant makes a separate application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada to apply for permanent residence. As well as meeting provincial criteria, the individual would have to meet federal immigration requirements. These processes require the proper legal guidance that can only be attained through an immigration expert. Failure to meet the provincially set criteria will likely lead to a rejection of the application.
Canada has long valued immigration to meet its growing labour needs. However, increased government regulations and ever-changing rules can make this a difficult endeavour.
We understand that companies must plan for their labour requirements – in both the short- and long-term. The last thing any company wants is a major, unnecessary cost to a project because of red-tape that prevents an essential skilled worker from entering the country by a certain time.
This is where we come in. We can help prevent unnecessary anxiety – and better yet – help you grow and succeed.
“My goal is to make the immigration process as quick and easy as possible for employers by ensuring the legal paperwork is done correctly the first time and that the best route for employees’ entry into Canada has been chosen,” says Elizabeth Long, a partner at Long Mangalji LLP. “We are among the few lawyers who practise only immigration law and who understand the small points that can make a big difference for your company.”
