Job Offer From A Canadian Employer can help you qualify for Immigration to Canada

If you receive a job offer from a Canadian company, your visa application process will be much easier! We strongly recommend obtaining a job offer from a Canadian company before submitting your visa application. If you can get this document, it will not only help you settle easier in Canada , but it will also increase your Pass Mark assessment. Citizenship and Immigration Canada places priority on new Immigrations applications (such as Federal Skilled Worker) a with a qualifying job offer.

Let us explain the way a job offer will help you increase your Pass Mark assessment:

You will receive 10-15 points if:
  • You have a permanent job offer in Canada . However, please note that this offer has to be confirmed by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC).
  • If you are already in Canada (with a temporary work permit), and you decide to apply from within the country, you will also receive points in the following situations:
You will receive 10-15 points if:
    • Your temporary work permit was issued after receiving a confirmation of a job offer from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada ; - Your temporary work permit was exempted from the requirement of a issued after receipt of a confirmation of your job offer from HRSDC (due to an international agreement).
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC) are responsible for determining whether a particular job offer made by a Canadian employer to a foreign individual should be approved.

HRSDC confirmation is based on the following conditions:
  • The offer of employment is genuine;
  • The wages and working conditions of the employment are sufficient to attract and retain Canadians; and
  • The employment is full-time and not seasonal.

The Job Offer

Canadian Employers are required by CIC and HRSDC to prepare a formal employment contract or a Job Offer Letter for future employees, which must include:
  • Job title for the position being offered.
  • Job description, including main duties and responsibilities.
  • Requirements for the position - a list of necessary professional credentials, education, skills, experience, and licenses, as required.
  • Details about start and end dates (if applicable) of the position.
  • Specifics about the salary you are offering - both wages and other forms of payment.
  • The name and address of the employer, the address of the employee’s future place of work, and the details of a contact person at the Canadian company who is familiar with the job offer.
Along with verifying that the job offer is genuine, HRSDC will ensure that the conditions the Canadian company is offering are consistent with Canadian standards. Once HRSDC has confirmed the job offer with a Labour Market Opinion (LMO), CIC will grant employment authorization for the company's future employees to work in Canada.

If you already have a job offer from a Canadian employer, the next step would be to submit an immigration to Canda evaluation. You can complete the evaluation even if you don't have a job offer. However, as explained in this article, having a job offer will help you qualify for Immigration and will speed up the immigration process.
