Skilled Worker Application Procedures

A number of factors go into the decision to approve a skilled worker application. At the very least, the following three requirements should be satisfied:

  • Appropriate experience
  • A standing job offer
  • Employment for at least a year

At Alam Law Chambers (ALC), our lawyers understand how Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) review applications for work permits. We offer legal support and representation for individuals living outside of Canada looking to obtain a work permit for a skilled trade.

Updates On Job Market Changes

Work permits are generally offered in Canada for labour areas that need more skilled workers. The list of trades fall into two main categories - major and minor - and range from construction and maintenance jobs to chefs and technology positions.

The list of trades change based on Canada's needs and job market demands. It's essential to know what jobs are offering positions before you make an application. At ALC, we provide you with the latest information and legal requirements so we can advise you on how to apply properly.

Application Approval Within A Reasonable Timeframe

If your application is denied, our lawyers will provide you with efficient legal support to begin the appeal process. We will look at alternative trade groups and the positions available, and where your work experience may best be applied.

We'll examine items such as education and languages and make sure you are in the best position you can be to apply for a skilled worker permit. We'll review the application for defects and highlight what you can do to improve your chances of approval.
