Canada Closed Work Permit by rockford: 10:08pm On May 29, 2022
Hello ���
We have various threads on Canada migration here on nairaland but I could not find any that relates to migrating to Canada via a closed work permit.
Closed work permits are usually for work permits tied to a particular company, i.e you are getting the work permit only for that role in the specified company.
I am currently in the last stage of the process which is awaiting work permit application decision from IRCC.

For me, LMIA was approved February. I applied for closed work permit March 29 2022.
Do we have people going through this process? Please share your timelines

I applied for the job, went through series of interviews and test. The company sent an offer afterwards and applied for the LMIA themself. They sent the approved LMIA letter with my LMIA number.

A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada may need to get before hiring a foreign worker.

No, IELTS is not required. The most important part is getting the job with the company ready to process LMIA

Nice one, don't forget to transit to Permanent Residence, all you need is to work full time for 1 year or more and apply through the Canadian Experience Class route.

Ok thanks for your response, one more question.. Does the positive Lmia guarantee visa? Or is there still any chances of visa denial?

its not technically a guarantee but of those with positive LMIA on the list where it's tracked (managed by indian applicants), all were positive since 2021 but your NOC determines how long it will take for approval. All the rejections were ICT (intra company transfer and LMIA exempt)
