Canada Work Visa guide for Employers
Canada is one of the few countries in the Western World that
is actively looking for immigrants, so any non-Canadian candidate you wish to
employ may well qualify for Independent Immigration under the points system.
Unfortunately, Independent immigration takes so long to process, that any
urgently required staff will probably have to be transferred using visas
sponsored by you; with your help a visa can be obtained in only a few weeks.
Canadian Employment Authorisation
Time to obtain Canada work visa:
2 to 6 weeks.
This category is frequently used by employers to bring in
senior managers/executives. It can also be used to employ highly skilled
individuals to fill a vacancy which has been validated to show that, despite
significant recruitment efforts, it has not been possible to find a suitably
skilled Canadian permanent resident. The following categories of foreign workers
do not need to be validated by a Human Resource Centre in Canada which makes an
application somewhat easier:
- Senior managers or executives seeking to enter
Canada as intra-company transferees.
- Some musicians and performers who have a
contract to perform in Canada.
- Volunteers who have been offered positions
with registered Canadian religious or charitable organisations.
- Exchange Professors.
- Post-doctoral fellows.
- Film crews going to film documentaries or
travelogues in Canada.
Engineers or technicians going to supervise the installation of equipment
sold by their company to a Canadian purchaser or going to repair or service such

Apart from the above exceptions,
vacancies will need to be 'validated' by the Canadian Human Resource Centre,

who can fill the vacancy. There is little point in applying for validation
unless the candidate has skills in very short supply.
Generally the spouse of those with work
authorisation will need to have their own work authorisation to be able to work
in Canada. This means that their job offer will have to be validated by the
Canadian Human Resources Centre as described above. The only difference is that
they can apply from within Canada. If however their spouses qualify as Highly
Skilled Temporary Workers, they can get EAs under the Spousal Employment
Authorization Pilot for Highly Skilled Temporary Workers.
