It is a known fact that Canada accepts thousands of new immigrants yearly as they plan to welcome over one million immigrants by 2022.
The Canadian labour market makes provision for people who have the needed skills to occupy certain vacant sits so as someone who is planning to immigrate to Canada, one of the easiest routes is to obtain a Canadian job offer.
However, you must acquire a Canadian visa as well as some other vital documents (including a valid international passport) if you must complete your immigration process to Canada.
Any eligible and admissible person who goes to Canada for work purpose is initially issued a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) by the Government of Canada which states that you are only allowed to stay in Canada for short period unless your work condition(s) or employer decides to change your status permanently.
As expected, a temporary resident has limited rights and privileges unlike a permanent resident. A temporary resident holder is not permitted to work or study in Canada unless he/she obtains a temporary work permit.
A temporary resident cannot freely move in and out of Canada except in cases where he/she has a valid multiple entry temporary visa. But if a temporary resident is applying to extend their stay, the candidate will be allowed to stay in Canada pending the time a decision on their application is taken.
Eligibility for Canada Temporary Residence
- You must be admissible to enter Canada before you can be granted entry.
- Candidates must be in good health condition to be eligible and may sometimes be required to provide a health insurance.
- Candidates must provide all required documents to prove that they have adequate funds to take care of themselves in Canada for at least a year before getting a job. They must also pay all charges.
How to Apply for Canada Temporary Resident Visa
Skilled workers who intend to migrate to Canada on a temporary basis must first obtain a job offer. Although some of the visa categories may not require a job offer.
Get a letter of a job offer from a Canadian employer, proceed to obtain all other required documents then head over to the Government of Canada’s official website, follow the step-by-step application guide and process to apply. Good luck!
