Work Visa from Nigeria to Canada

  • In order to work in Canada on a temporary basis, foreigners will require a work permit.
  • An offer of employment from a Canadian employer is usually required before the worker may be granted a Temporary Work Permit by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
  • Depending on the foreign worker's country of citizenship, a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) may also be needed in order to enter Canada.
  • Before a Temporary Work Permit can be issued, the Canadian employer who wishes to hire a temporary foreign worker may need to apply for and be granted a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) by ESDC.
  • The ESDC will grant a positive LMIA if it is satisfied that no Canadian citizen or permanent resident is available to do the job.
  • Work Permits may be issued by Canadian immigration officials without the LMIA requirement in a limited number of situations.
  • Once the LMIA is granted, the Canadian employer can provide a temporary job offer to the foreign worker.
  • A Temporary Work Permit may be issued for a period of time ranging from a few days to a few years.
  • In most cases, the process of applying for a Work Permit is twofold. First, the Canadian employer must receive government permission to hire outside Canada. Once this permission has been granted, the designated employee must apply for and receive his or her Work Permit.
