IRCC Program new opportunities to visit visa holders and much more

NOTE: This policy will remain valid till 28 February 2025

According to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, any foreign national who receives a job offer while in Canada will be able to apply for and receive a work permit (IRCC). only if he visited Canada on visit visa

This is an extension of the temporary public policy enacted during the COVID-19 era, which was supposed to expire today.

An applicant must meet the following requirements to be eligible to apply for this temporary public policy:

have valid visitor status in Canada on the day of application have a job offer supported by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or an LMIA-exempt offer of employment submit an application for an employer-specific work permit by February 28, 2025
satisfy all other standard admissibility specifications.

If you are accepted as a permanent resident and have a positive or neutral Labour Market Impact Assessment from Employment and Social Development Canada, a valid job offer is defined as a written offer of a full-time, non-seasonal job for one year or more (or the job is LMIA-exempt).

A labour market impact assessment (LMIA) is a form that an employer submits to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) to determine whether hiring foreign workers will have a positive, neutral, or negative impact on the Canadian economy. If ESDC determines that the impact is negative, the employer will indeed be barred from hiring foreign nationals.

  Quebec has its own programs and requirements for foreign skilled workers wishing to settle in the province.

Quebec has a one-of-a-kind status in Canada, with specific provisions and powers in place to safeguard its distinct culture and language. Despite the fact that the Canadian Constitution states that immigration is the responsibility of both the federal and provincial governments, Quebec has more immigration authority than any other province. Quebec established its own immigration ministry in 1968.
Unlike the rest of Canada, Quebec now has complete control over the permanent residents, study permit holders, and work permit holders admitted to the province. Quebec has the authority to set its own immigration goals and select candidates using its own criteria and procedures. Furthermore, when hiring a foreign worker, employers throughout Quebec must follow a particular procedure.
Anyone in Canada with visitor status who has held a valid work permit in the previous 12 months can follow special instructions to obtain interim work authorization and begin working for their new employer before their work permit application is processed.

Prior to the initial policy change, anyone wishing to work in Canada had to apply for a work permit before arriving. To obtain a work permit after arriving in Canada, a foreign national with visitor status would need to leave the country. This policy eliminates the need for this step.

The high number of job openings in Canada
When COVID-related travel restrictions made it difficult for newcomers to arrive from abroad, the measure was initially introduced to assist employers in Canada in filling urgent labor shortages.

Canada is working to fill job openings and reduce the labor shortage. Canada’s unemployment rate is 5% as of January, which is low by historical standards.

Furthermore, according to Statistics Canada data from December 2022, the overall number of vacancies fell to 848,000 from over one million earlier in the year. Nonetheless, several key industries require more workers to fill in-demand positions. There were 149,800 job openings in the healthcare and social assistance, 108,000 in accommodation and food services, and 100.200 in retail trade.
Skilled Workers in Quebec
A skilled worker can immigrate to Quebec through one of the programs listed below:Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) Experience Class in Quebec (PEQ)
The QSWP is designed for foreign skilled workers who want to relocate to Quebec. They must express their desire to immigrate to the province by submitting an expression of interest (EOI) through the Arrima online platform. Age, education, language skills, and work experience are all considered when scoring candidates. Top-scoring candidates from the pool will be chosen by the Ministry of Immigration, Francization, and Integration and invited to apply for permanent selection.

For foreign graduates and candidates with work experience in Quebec, the PEQ is an option. The program’s goal is to assist employers in hiring foreigners who have already settled and are well-integrated into the province.

Certificate of Selection from Quebec

The Ministry of Immigration, Francization, and Integration issues the Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ), which confirms that the foreign national has been chosen to settle in Quebec. With a CSQ, the candidate can apply to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residence in Canada.

Candidates selected through the QSWP and PEQ are given a CSQ and can then apply for permanent residence.

Options for Temporary Foreign Workers

Foreign nationals can work in Canada via the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and the International Mobility Program (IMP).

The TFWP enables Canadian employers to respond to the country’s labor shortage by hiring internationally while ensuring that Canadian citizens and permanent residents are prioritized for job openings.

The IMP exists to advance Canada’s economic, social, and cultural goals. It addresses labor market needs and allows foreign workers to come to Canada and strengthen ties with the global community while promoting art, culture, sports, and religion.

The TFWP requires a labor market impact assessment (LMIA), whereas the IMP does not. An LMIA is a document showing that hiring a foreign worker will positively or neutral impact the Canadian labor market. Before a foreign worker with a TFWP can begin working in Canada, he or she must first obtain a temporary work permit and an LMIA.

In order to hire a foreign skilled worker on a temporary work permit in Quebec, the employer must obtain a Quebec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) in addition to an LMIA.

The CAQ certifies that the Ministry of Immigration, Francization, and Integration has determined that hiring a foreign worker will have a positive or neutral effect on the province’s labor market, in accordance with the LMIA assessment. LMIA-exempt jobs do not require a CAQ.

If you wish to employ a foreign worker,
The Quebec Immigration Ministry publishes a list of occupations that qualify for streamlined LMIA processing. The process is considered facilitated because labor shortages are proven, allowing Quebec employers to hire foreign workers more quickly because they do not have to demonstrate that no eligible Canadian workers were available to fill the role.The Quebec government has simplified the hiring of temporary foreign workers with a valid CSQ, exempting them from the need to apply for an LMIA. Employers can avoid the need for an LMIA if they hire a foreign worker who meets the following criteria:
