Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
The answer to this question is that it depends entirely upon the type of stream under which you want to apply. If you are applying for a study visa, your application can be processed in as little as 7 weeks. But if you are applying to work as a caregiver, your application could take up to 3 years. For economic immigration your application could be processed from as little as 5 months, to as long as 2 years. So as you can see, the processing times can vary greatly.
For a more specific answer to this question, please contact our office and we'll be happy to look at your particular situation.
If you previously applied for immigration but your application wasn't successful, we might be able to file an appeal or seek a review from the Federal Court. However, you should be aware that there are strict time limits in order to do so, and you must act quickly if you wish to follow this route. If the decision was based on an application made in Canada, you have 15 days from the date you receive your refusal letter. If it is based on an application made outside of Canada, you have 60 days.
The Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) is a program that allows employers in Canada to temporarily hire foreign workers when they aren't able to find qualified Canadians for the job. However, before your company can hire a foreign worker you will need to obtain permission in the form of a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
When you file an application for a LMIA, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) will review it in order to determine if your hiring of a foreign worker will have a negative effect on the Canadian labour market. ESDC will look at a number of factors, including the available labour market information in your region for the particular occupation.
If you are looking to hire foreign workers for your company, get in touch with us, and we would be happy to discuss how we can help you meet your needs.
