Canada:Arranged Employment Opinion
Canada: Arranged Employment Opinion
Under the new immigration rules that came into effect on June 28, 2002, foreign workers who have arranged employment in Canada, and apply for a Canadian Permanent Resident Visa under the Skilled Worker category, qualify for valuable points of assessment. Applicants holding a temporary work permit that is validated by the HRSDC or an HRSDC-confirmed permanent offer of employment can obtain a maximum of 10 points.
Lately most immigrants apply for a residence card through the Arranged Employment Opinion process if currently outside or employed within Canada. The two main categories for employment based immigration that require Arranged Employment Opinion are Skilled Worker and Temporary Worker (TW). Within these two categories, there are many sub-categories for professionals holding advanced or low degrees, aliens of exceptional ability, baccalaureate degree holders, and other workers.
The key of the process is to convince the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) that no qualified Canadian worker is willing to take your job. In other words, the hiring of you, an alien, will not adversely affect the job opportunities, wages and working conditions of Canadian workers.
There are certain risks associated with Arranged Employment Opinion application. The main one is that you might be replaced if a qualified qualified worker (citizen or resident card holder) is found. We suggest everyone going through the Arranged Employment Opinion application know the process. Therefore, you will have some control of the process to avoid the risks.
Arranged Employment Opinion application requires employer’s sponsorship. This does not mean that you can not do it yourself. It only means that a representative of the employer has to sign the forms. You can prepare the forms and all other documents.
Since last year, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) started changes and modifications for a new Arranged Employment Opinion system, which have streamlined the Arranged Employment Opinion process and make it faster. However, attorneys, law firms can NOT register to use the on-line system. You have to be applied by the employer directly.
