Immigrate to Canada for CETA!

CETA, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the EU and Canada will hopefully be raffled in 2017.  Currently, a temporary resident is a foreign national who is legally authorized to enter Canada for temporary purposes. Right now, they fall under the four categories:  Visitors, Students, temporary workers and temporary resident permit holders.

Work permits and Labour Market Impact Assessments are required in order to be allowed to work in Canada.

In British Columbia – Employers must provide the Employment Agency Licence (if applicable). An employer wishing to hire someone from the EU, must complete, sign and submit the LIMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment), with the name of the foreign national they wish to hire, the job offer signed by both the employer and the foreign worker, proof of recruitment (copy of advertisement/info to show how long the position was advertised), business registration or legal incorporation documents, business licence (s), CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) documents, commercial lease agreement, provincial documentation, as the Employment Agency License, if applicable. There most likely will also be fees involved.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will only conduct business with representatives who are authorized third party representatives, the TFWP will determine the impact a temporary foreign worker will have on the Canadian labour market, if two employers agree to share a foreign skilled tradesperson, the first employer must complete and sign a labour market assessment application form and the second employer must sign Schedule D.

Under the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), an employer must offer a job that is for higher skilled positions (scientific, professional, technical or trade), full-time, permanent and non-seasonal.
