How to Get Work Permits

Date: March 15, 2017

Speaker: Benjamin Kranc, Certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a Specialist in Immigration Law

Slides: Download

This is the first in a two-part series about getting foreign workers to Canada. The first session will focus on getting foreign workers to Canada; the second will focus on (ever-stricter) ongoing compliance requirements.

Employers often need foreign talent, whether from their own foreign affiliates, or from outside their organization. This first of two webinars will provide practical advice concerning the bringing/transferring of temporary foreign workers to Canada. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the ‘big picture’ flow of the immigration system, as well as the nuanced issues within the system that can make or break an application – along with strategies on how to overcome the obstacles.

Specific topics will include :

  • ESDC/Service Canada Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) procedures
  • Intra-company transfers
  • NAFTA, GATS and other treaty-based professional provisions
  • The strategies for avoiding an LMIA
  • Making sure that things go as planned upon entry to Canada by the foreign worker
