Corporate Immigration Options & Programs

Our corporate immigration lawyers can assist your current or prospective employees with obtaining work authorization (work permits), and if necessary, help them transition to Canadian permanent residence status.

Corporate immigration streams fall under:

  • the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (Temporary Foreign Worker Program), or
  • the International Mobility Program (IMP).

 

The International Mobility Program is driven by free trade agreements and Canada’s national interests. The Temporary Foreign Worker Program is driven by specific labour market shortages and requires employers to go through the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) application process.

There is often more than one option available and knowing which route to follow before starting the corporate immigration process is critical to achieving a successful outcome.

Book a consultation with one of our immigration lawyers today to discuss your corporate immigration needs and the options available to you and your foreign workers.

Understanding National Occupation Classifications

Both temporary and permanent economic immigration streams utilize the National Occupational Classification (NOC), a standardized system that defines and classifies every occupation presently found in Canada’s labour market.

The NOC was developed and is maintained by Employment and Social Development Canada in partnership with Statistics Canada. Statistic Canada’s website National Job Bank contains prevailing wage statistics, occupation specific regional employment outlooks and reports, and allows employer to advertise open positions.

The NOC provides information about the general educational credentials and/or training requirement as well as the job duties for each of the listed occupations.

The NOC should be utilized by employers with respect to either offers or confirmation of employment within the immigration context. It is also used by foreign nationals when submitting temporary and permanent residence applications. It is used by Service Canada in the course of the consideration of Labour Market Impact Assessment applications and is contained within every closed work permit issued under either the TFWP or IMP programs.
