Canada Announces Big Relief for Visit Visa Holders With Job Offers

Canadian Government has extended the deadline for visit visa holders with job offers to apply for a work permit without leaving the country.

People who had a work permit in the last 12 months and are applying under this new policy can also request to start working for their new employer sooner.

The policy, which was set to expire on 28 February 2022, will now continue until 28 February 2025.

This extension will allow Canadian firms to address their staff shortage.

Before this policy, visit visa holders had to leave Canada to get a work permit after getting a job offer.

In order to be eligible for this scheme, the applicant must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a valid visitor status in Canada when applying.
  • Receive a job offer that is approved by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or an LMIA-exempt offer of employment.
  • Submit an application for an employer-specific work permit on or before the above-mentioned deadline.
  • Fulfill all other requirements.
