Temporary work visas, student visas and visitor visas for Canada
At the Law Offices of Saguy Barchichat, we will assist you and your family members with the immigration process for Canada work visas, student visas and visitor visas for those who wish to come to Canada for a temporary stay; either for work, study or simply a visit. In some cases, your temporary residence in Canada may qualify you for permanent residence.
In most cases, it is a prerequisite to obtain a job offer from a Canadian company and to have that job offer approved by Service Canada before a work permit will be issued by Canadian immigration authorities. The process of having the job offer approved, Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) requires that the employer demonstrate it could not find a Canadian/permanent resident to fill the job position. Once a job offer is approved, an application for the actual Work Permit can be made to Immigration Canada.
To be eligible to study in Canada, you must have been accepted by a school, college, university or other educational institution in Canada. Also, you must prove that you have enough money to pay for tuition fees and living expenses for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada. Finally, you must satisfy an immigration officer that you will leave Canada when you have completed your studies.
