Confronted to an aging labor force and to a competitive world economy, the immigration of skilled workers to Canada is a vital component of its economy. A total of 262,236 people immigrated to Canada in 2006, a seven percent increase over the previous year. Between 1991 and 2001, almost one million new immigrants joined Canada’s labor force thus representing 70% of the total labor force growth during that decade. At such rate, immigration could account all labor force growth in Canada by 2011.

Can I visit Canada while my Application for Permanent Residence is in process?
Your temporary entry to Canada is subject to the discretion of the immigration officer at the Canadian port of entry and they may refuse you entry if they know that you have applied for Permanent Residence in Canada and are, thus, an intending immigrant and not merely a visitor. If questioned whether you have an Application for Permanent Residence in progress, you must answer this question, truthfully; however, you should emphasize that your visit to Canada is merely temporary in nature and that it is your full intention to leave Canada upon the completion of your visit.

What are the processing costs?
For each adult, governmental processing fees may vary depending on the province in Canada you will choose as your destination. Note that additional costs may be associated with the processing of your visa application, such as English or French proficiency language testing, medical examination, police clearance certificates and mailing / courier costs.
How long will it take?
The time required to obtain a work visa or a permanent residency visa can vary , depending on the country where your application was filed and the visa subclass in which you are applying for. Processing times may be hindered by the number of applications received and the capacity of each visa post to deal with them. Although some variations exist from one office to another, the system requires that all the necessary documentation be submitted at the time the file is opened.
How long does the Application process take?
Processing times will depend on:
i. The Canadian visa office and company through which you intend to apply for or has applied for Work visa in Canada.
ii. the Canadian visa office through which you intend to apply for Permanent Residence in Canada;
iii. whether an immigration interview is deemed necessary in your case;
iii. the complexity of your case;
iv. If hiring a law practitioner , how well your case is presented; and
v. the existing caseload in a Canadian visa office at a given time.
Nobody can promise you a specific processing timeframe and any lawyer/consultant that guarantees processing times is being less than truthful with you. Lawyers/consultants can give estimates which can be short or long; however, they CANNOT guarantee processing times as processing times are ALWAYS subject to change WITHOUT advance notice by the goverment.
