This Week’s Success Story: Young Professional’s Work Permit Granted Within a Few Weeks

Posted by Fabiola Arevalo - Bellissimo Law Group PC

A young Engineer retained us to represent her with respect to a work permit under the International Experience Canada – Young professionals’ category. Since we had a tight deadline to provide all the supporting documentation and information after receiving the acceptance into the program, we prioritized our client’s application as well as worked with her potential employer in Canada to prepare and submit the work permit application. Such applications have many layers as they involve both the foreign national as well as the Canadian employer who has to submit an Offer of employment under the LMIA-exempt category. The work permit application was filed before the deadline along with a complete supporting documentation package. Although the processing timelines for such cases is 8 weeks, our client received her work permit approval 3 weeks after we submitted her application.
