Vancouver Lawyers Assisting With Temporary Work in Canada
If you wish to work in Canada on a temporary basis, or if you are an employer wishing to bring an employee into Canada for a temporary work purpose, you or your employee will — unless you fall under one of a number of highly specific exceptions — need to secure a work permit.
At Embarkation Law Group, our team of immigration lawyers is dedicated to competently and diligently assisting clients with the Canadian work permit process. Based in Vancouver, we help clients worldwide obtain permits to work in all areas of Canada.
Guiding Clients Through All Aspects of the Permit Process
Our lawyers help clients apply for Labour Market Opinions (LMO), North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) permits, Canada–Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA) permits, General Agreement on Trade and Services (GATS) permits, intra-company transfers and information technology (IT) work permits.
We prepare our clients' applications and advise them on proceedings they may need to go through, including immigration interviews and medical examinations.
In some cases, the employer may need to secure a positive labour market opinion (LMO) from Service Canada before applying for a work permit. We are experienced at guiding clients through the LMO process and finding appropriate exemptions to the LMO.
As professional lawyers, we are qualified to not only assist you with your application, but also to represent you, if you are denied a permit, in any immigration hearing or appeal that may be necessary.
While many of our clients wish to work in Canada on a purely temporary basis, others wish to eventually obtain permanent residence. If you are interested in gaining a foothold in Canada through temporary work status, we can advise you on your short-term and long-term options.
