IRCC Commits to speed up processing of work permits

The immigration minister reiterated his promise to improve work permit processing speeds in Canada during meetings with the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration. Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will use its $85 million budget to minimise processing times, which have been increased by the epidemic, according to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Minister Sean Fraser. Service standards for work permits, study permits, proof of citizenship, and permanent residency card renewals would return to normal by the end of 2022, according to the minister.

1. Importance of faster processing of work permits in Canada

According to the most recent job vacancy statistics, Canada had approximately 900,000 job openings in November. Immigration has long been promoted as a means of expanding Canada’s labour market. Because businesses in particular areas have clearly established a constant need for foreign talent, some work permits for workers in such fields have been accelerated. The processing time for the Global Talent Stream, for example, is 10 business days. It’s designed to help firms in the computer industry hire international workers.

Some foreign nationals require the LMIA before they can be hired. It’s a labour market test that the Canadian government may demand to prove that a worker in Canada is unfit for the job. For the GTS and the Quebec facilitated jobs list, Canada offers faster LMIA processing.

2. Staying in Canada whilst processing work permit

If a person files for a work visa extension before it expires, they can stay in Canada on maintained status until the IRCC reaches a decision. As long as they stay in Canada while waiting, they are able to work under the same conditions as their work visa. Study permit holders and tourists seeking to prolong their temporary status may also be given maintained status.

If the worker applies for permanent residency, they may be eligible for a Bridging Open Work Permit (BOWP), which allows them to remain in Canada while their application is being reviewed.
