Current and future demographic trends, coupled with labour shortages at both the national and local levels indicate that foreign labour will continue to be relied upon to meet Canada’s labour needs. The lawyer at Phoenix Legal in Calgary can help you obtain temporary residence in Canada.
At Phoenix Legal, we provide a comprehensive process package commencing with the application for a labour market opinion (LMO) with Service Canada, followed by the preparation and submission of the work permit applications under the existing criteria outlined in the act and the regulations.
Your situation may allow you to work in Canada without a work permit, provided certain conditions are met, or you may be permitted to engage in employment pursuant to agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement [NAFTA] and other international bilateral treaty arrangements with Canada.
Visiting and Studying
These documents authorize intending temporary residents to visit or study in Canada subject to certain conditions that must be observed by the temporary resident. We can assist in preparing a customized letter of invitation and declaration of support should you wish to invite a friend or relative.
At Phoenix Legal, we are prepared to assist intending students by providing useful information on studying in Canada and other information to assist the foreign student in obtaining a letter of acceptance from a post-secondary institution.
Temporary Resident Permits
A Temporary Resident Permit (“TRP” formerly known as the Minister’s Permit) can assist foreign nationals who wish to enter Canada, but face inadmissibility stemming from security, medical or criminality issues. The TRP can overcome the inadmissibility and permit a foreign national to enter, work, study and remain in Canada.
If you have criminality issues, we can assist in the immigration rehabilitation application process taking you closer to becoming a permanent resident.
