Study in Canada

Each year Canada welcomes thousands of international students to experience world class education in Canada. Canada is a preferred destination for students from across the globe, as students get access to quality education, along with the ability to work while studying. Most importantly, studying in Canada unlocks the opportunity to choose a pathway to become a Canadian Permanent Resident.

Canadian immigration policies for international students make working after graduation, and permanent residency thereafter much easier as compared to the rest of the world. Whether you come to only study in Canada or to make Canada your permanent home, you must meet certain requirements to qualify. Immigration processes can be complicated as there are many factors to take into consideration before initiating the process. Hence, working with an experienced consultant who guides you through this step by step relieves your stress, provides confidence and peace of mind.

Your dependents may also be able to accompany you to Canada for the duration of your studies in Canada. Your spouse or common-law partner may be able to obtain a work permit, and your dependent children may be able to obtain a study permit at Canadian elementary and secondary schools. We can guide you through this and help you reunite with your loved ones.

At Globus, your study matters and we are ready to help you at every step of the process; from admission to submitting your application to finding pathways for permanently immigrating to Canada. Let us assist you in creating an application that is designed to make you stand out among the vast amount of applications received year-round. We also offer career counselling services to help you find an institution which is best suited to your profile and long term goals.

Study Permit- Regular Stream

A study permit allows you to legally study in Canada for the duration of the study permit that was issued to you. Generally, study permits are issued for studies that are 6 months or longer depending on the duration of your program, your passport validity or other factors. If your program is shorter than 6 months, then you will not need a study permit. Although you might need a temporary resident visa to enter and remain in Canada on a valid status. Depending on your nationality you may be required to obtain an eTa or a visa.

Having a Canadian education comes with its many benefits. Canada allows its valid study permit holders to work up to 20 hours a week while studying and full-time during breaks without a need of work permit. In addition to offering a world class education and experience, Canada offers its graduates a chance to enter the Canadian market and gain Canadian work experience. Having both Canadian education and work experience can be rewarding when and if you decide to pursue the pathway of permanent residence.

It is very important to gather and submit the necessary documents to avoid refusal of an application and unwanted delays. At Globus, we work religiously to help you create the application package required for this stream.

In addition to the requirements of the Regular Study Permit Stream, you need following additional documents:

Business Immigration

Canada is a prime location with its leading industry and global market. Canadian Government invites investors, business people and entrepreneurs with skills and innovative ideas to settle in Canada and enjoy what Canada has to offer.

Immigration Canada has created multiple pathways for Permanent Residency for business people, investors and entrepreneurs both on federal and provincial level.

Start-Up Visa

Canada welcomes entrepreneurs, investors and people with innovative ideas and supports them through designated investors. The Start-Up visa program acts as a bridge between the successful entrepreneurs and the private sector organizations to provide them with funding and guidance to become established in Canada. At Globus, through our knowledge and experience we assist you with your Start-Up visa application by assisting you with your business plan all the way to getting you a permanent residence status.

  2. At the time of obtaining the Permanent Residence:
    • In order to secure permanent residence through the Start-up Visa Program, applicants must ensure that the business becomes incorporated within Canada with essential activities taking place in Canada through the active management of the foreign entrepreneurs

2. Obtain and Secure Commitment Letter from a Designated Organization

Before applying to the Start-up Visa Program, foreign entrepreneurs must secure the commitment of a designated organization that will support and invest in the business’ development in Canada.

You can only apply for this short term work permit after you obtain the commitment letter and the letter of support from the designated organization.

Self Employed Persons

Canada welcomes people with different work experiences by offering them different pathway options to obtain Permanent Residency Status. Candidates with a background of cultural and athletic activities do not always qualify under the Express Entry programs and Canada recognizes that. In order to promote the cultural and athletic activities, the government has launched a Self Employment Program that allows artists and athletes to become eligible for PR if certain conditions are met. Candidates under this program are subject to different selection factors. The Self Employed program has its unique points calculation system that ranks the candidates according to their experience, age, language proficiency, education, and adaptability. Under this program athletes and artists must have a relevant experience in cultural activities or athletics, and intend to make a significant contribution to Canada.

Eligibility Requirements

    • Cultural Activities:
      • 2 one-year periods being self-employed in cultural activities, or

Provincial Nominee Programs for Investors

Each province has their own selection criteria and application process. While some provinces have their own points grid, the other provinces assess you based on your net worth, investment funds, age, language skills and selection factors. If you wish to explore your option as an investor through PNP please contact us. At Globus, we assist our clients to explore the best option that is aligned with their personal goals.

Work in Canada on PGWP, open work permit, LMIA based work permits and as an Intra Company Transferee (ICT)

Work in Canada

Canada offers a lot of opportunities for people who would like to work in Canada and gain meaningful work experience. In order to regulate the foreign workers,there are many regulations in place that govern Canada’s working class. Canada is well known for its economy and diverse population and it has become a hotspot for international students and business people as well as investors from around the world.

Post-Graduation Work Permit- PGWP

This program under Canada’s Immigration system, allows international students who graduated from a Canadian Designated Learning Institution to stay in Canada and gain Canadian work experience for up to 3 years. This permit allows graduates to enter the Canadian labour market that transitions them to the permanent residency pathway. It is important to note that not every Designated Learning Institution makes you eligible to obtain a Post-Graduation Work Permit. At Globus Immigration, we are committed to assisting you at every stage of the process to build your dream future. Similar to other application types, PGWP has a pressing timeline that needs to be followed in order to be eligible to apply. At Globus Immigration, we ensure that we work with our clients promptly and efficiently so that we are always ahead of time.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must have completed a program of minimum of 8 months and awarded a degree, diploma or certificate.
  • Completion of full-time study, for the entire duration of the program.

Important things to know before you apply for PGWP

  • Have a valid study permit;.
  • Must be minimum 18 years of age.
  • Apply for PGWP within 180 days of receiving your final marks.
  • You must have graduated.
  • Any other conditions imposed by IRCC at time of submission

Spousal Open Work Permit

As Canada welcomes many students and talented temporary foreign workers each year, it also ensures that the families are not separated. Hence, Canadian Immigration allows the spouses or common law partners of the students or workers to legally study or work in Canada for the duration of their stay. This open work permit allows the spouse or common law partner who is accompanying, to work without the need of an LMIA. The open work permit allows the spouse of the student or the worker to work freely with any employer as it is not an employer specific work permit. One of the many benefits of this work permit is that it gives the opportunity for them to gain Canadian work experience and thereafter apply for Permanent Residency if they qualify. To be eligible to obtain a spousal open work permit, the person and the main applicant must meet certain requirements.

Eligibility Requirements

  • You are a spouse of a foreign worker in an occupation that is under the NOC Code skill type 0, A, or B that is for six months or longer.
  • You are a spouse of a student at a public post-secondary institution
  • You are a spouse of a foreign representative, or
  • You are a spouse of a foreign military member who is currently working in Canada

Business Visitor

Canada allows business visitors to enter Canada temporarily to take part in international business activities without entering or affecting the Canadian Labour Market. To qualify as a business visitor you may need to prove to the Immigration Officers that you are entering Canada based on a certain activity and that you will return back once your business activity is done. Business visitors and business people are not the same, therefore a business visitor must obtain proper authorization to enter Canada.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Intention to stay in Canada less than 6 months.
  • Visit Canada to conduct business activities without entering the labour market
  • Have primary source of income outside of Canada
  • Have a valid travel document
  • Have sufficient funds for the duration of your stay
  • Be in good health and not be a health risk to Canadians
  • Have a clean criminal record
  • Show sufficient ties to your home country
  • Leave Canada at the end of your visit.

LMIA

The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)is a document issued by Employment and Skill Development Canada (ESDC) that provides options for temporary foreign workers to work in Canada. This option also allows students who are not eligible for PGWP due to any factors, to obtain an LMIA and then work.

The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process is in place to prove that no Canadian citizen or permanent resident is ready, willing, and able to fill a specific position in Canada. In such a case, the employer is allowed to hire a foreign worker. Hiring a foreign national through LMIA can be complex as there are numerous program requirements to be met. LMIA applications are detailed and require lots of documentation and statistical tabulation. Depending on the type of the job, an employer can recruit and hire a temporary foreign worker under either low wage position or high wage position. Low wage LMIA is used when the employee is offered a wage that is below the median wage. The High wage LMIA is used when the employee is offered the median wage or higher. Upon receiving a positive LMIA, the employee can apply for an employer specific work permit.

Steps to apply for LMIA

In order to apply for an LMIA the employer must first prove that they have a functioning business that can support a Temporary Foreign Worker. The next step is to conduct recruitment efforts and see if there are any Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents that are qualified enough or are willing to work in the job that is being offered by the employer. Only after the determination is made that there are no viable candidates, then an LMIA application is submitted for review. Hiring of a temporary foreign worker requires a detailed process and at Globus Immigration we are here to assist you at every step of the process.

Similar to the High-wage and Low-wage LMIA, in order for an employer to extend a permanent job offer to a temporary worker who is applying for a PR, they must conduct similar recruitment efforts. This LMIA is used for offering a permanent job offer to the employee to support their Permanent Residence application through Express Entry programs. By obtaining a positive LMIA for PR Support, the applicant receives additional 50 points towards their comprehensive ranking score that raises their overall score and ensures better ranking in the Express entry pool.

An Owner Operator LMIA is slightly different compared to the other LMIA types. This LMIA is focused more so on the business proposal rather than just offering a specific job to a single potential employee. There are many benefits to the owner operator LMIA, there are no recruitment efforts required for this LMIA and the person gets the freedom to operate their own business anywhere in Canada. To be eligible to immigrate through this route, you must satisfy important requirements related to business control and benefit to Canada through job creation and/ or skill transferability. Upon meeting all the requirements, the first step would be to apply for LMIA and then apply for a work permit upon receiving a positive LMIA.

This LMIA category can be considered as an investment category although it should not be confused with it. Investors who are granted work permit through this LMIA will be required to become an employee of their own Canadian company. This means that the company must demonstrate that it is able to pay the “employee” a median wage that meets the province or the territories wage requirements for that occupation as per their National Occupational Classification (NOC) Code.

Steps to Come to Canada on an Owner/ Operator LMIA:

  • You must submit an application to the Employment and Skill Development Canada (ESDC) to obtain a positive LMIA.
  • Once a positive LMIA is issued, the applicant/investor can submit an application for a work permit that is valid for up to 2 years.
  • The last step would be to apply for permanent residence through the Express Entry or Provincial Nominee Programs.

Global Talent Stream

This Stream allows employers to have access to highly skilled global talent and to expand their workforce in Canada to become more competitive in the global marketplace. While this program allows employers to hire highly skilled foreign talent, it operates under two categories, which is either by an endorsement from one of the designated organizations under the program or being hired under an occupation that is listed under one of the listed occupations. Through this program employers can hire an employee much faster compared to the other programs. The applications can be processed in as less as 10 days. Under this program having a Labour Market Benefits Plan is important to demonstrate that the planned business activities will have an impact on the Canadian labour market. At Globus, we work tirelessly to provide you with a smooth process for hiring Global Talent.

Intra Company Transferee

This program allows the temporary movement of qualified employees between the Canadian branch and the overseas branch of the company for the purpose of improving, expanding and enhancing competitiveness in the overseas market. Qualified intra company transferees require a work permit to enter the labour market. Also, they are exempt from the LMIA process since they provide significant economic benefits to the Canadian market by transferring their expertise. Compared to the other programs, this program operates differently as there is a detailed analysis about the company documents and the employee to be transferred.

There are two categories under this program for an employee to be eligible for transfer: they must be transferred to a position which is either an executive or senior managerial role, or have specialized knowledge. To be eligible under this program, the foreign worker must satisfy specific requirements regarding their employment with the overseas enterprise. At Globus, we assist the employer to explore their options in expanding to the Canadian market and assist them in the process of transferring their qualified employees between their enterprises. On the other hand, we assist the employee that is being transferred by submitting applications for them and their accompanying family.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • You must be currently employed by a multinational company and will be working in a parent, a subsidiary, a branch, or an affiliate of the same enterprise
  • You must be transferring to an enterprise that has a qualifying relationship with the enterprise in which they are currently employed
  • You will be undertaking employment at a legitimate and continuing establishment of that company
  • You are being transferred to a position in an executive, senior managerial, or specialized knowledge capacity
  • You must have been employed continuously, by the company that plans to transfer you outside Canada in a similar full-time position for at least one year in the three-years.

Home Support Worker and Home Childcare Provider Pilot

These two pilot programs replaced the live-in caregiver programs. The main objectives of the pilot is that the care provider obtains an occupation specific work permit and this allows the caregiver to change employers. Under this pilot program the caregivers family members can accompany them to Canada and they are eligible to study and/or work in Canada. This pilot program not only offers the caregiver a temporary status in Canada, it also creates a direct pathway for Canadian Permanent Residency upon meeting the requirements. Through this program, you can submit your Permanent Residence application once you have completed the minimum 24 months of qualifying Canadian work experience in the last 36 months

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Be in either NOC Code 4411 or NOC Code 4412
  • 1 year or higher post secondary education
  • Language proficiency results of CLB 5 or higher
  • Ability to perform the task described in NOC Code description in addition to the work experience and education
  • Have a genuine job offer from a Canadian employer that is outside of Quebec

International Experience Class -IEC

Canada allows residents of some countries to come to Canada and work under three different categories such as Working Holiday, Young Professionals and International Co-op. This is an opportunity to travel and work in Canada. Applicants under IEC do not require an LMIA. To find out more about International Experience, contact us.

NAFTA provides a unique opportunity for nationals of the United States of America and Mexico to work in Canada. Under NAFTA, the employers who are hiring temporary foreign nationals are exempt from obtaining LMIA. More than 60 occupations are listed under NAFTA, which are eligible for work in Canada. Qualifying applicants may choose to apply at the visa office or in some cases they may even apply at the Port of Entry (POE). Contact us to find out if you qualify under NAFTA. At Globus, we provide you assistance for both at POE applications and visa office applications.

Express Entry

Express Entry is a competitive immigration system, ranking all eligible candidates in the pool and then inviting the best ranking candidates to apply for Canadian permanent resident status through a draw. Candidates are ranked against one another based on their Age, Education, Language Proficiency, Work Experience, and other selection factors.

Under Express Entry, applicants will need to be eligible under one of the following 3 main economic immigration programs as well as a select number of Provincial Nominee Programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Class

Provincial Nominee Programs under Express Entry

Under Express Entry, certain provinces and territories have Express Entry categories that are aligned with the Express Entry eligibility criterias. Most of the time to qualify under the Provincial Nominee Programs that are aligned with Express Entry, the candidate must meet and be eligible for one of the Express Entry Programs. There are multiple ways to apply through Express Entry for PNP’s. You can either create a profile under EE and wait to be selected by the Province or directly apply to the PNP through their EE streams. Either way the candidate must receive nomination from the province in order to be awarded the 600 points. Receiving a nomination or the 600 points is not a guarantee that the candidate will receive a permanent residency status. The process of applying for PNP’s can be very complex and a small mistake may lead to refusal of your application. PNP applications have multiple stages and therefore the application process should be handled delicately as each application stream has different requirements and they must be submitted to the appropriate channel.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Meet the requirements of the stream that is being applied to
  • Meet minimum requirements of Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class or Federal Skilled Trades Program

Canada protects and welcomes refugees with certain conditions.

Visit Canada as a Tourist

Canada is a popular destination for tourists and travel enthusiasts from around the world. You may wish to visit Canada as a tourist, to see family and friends, or to do business. Before you start planning your trip there may be few things you might want to consider. Depending on your country of origin or citizenship you may be required to apply for a visitor visa or if you are from a visa exempt country or just transiting through Canada you may need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).

Additionally, whether you plan on visiting Canada for a few days or several months, you must meet some important immigration requirements laid out in Canada’s Immigration Laws. At Globus, we will assist you by assessing your file, making sure that you meet the requirements and completing your application.

Super Visa

The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa for Canada allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents to visit Canada for extended periods. A super visa lets you visit your children or grandchildren for up to 2 years at a time. It is a multiple-entry visa that allows visitors to travel as many times as they want for a period up to 10 years. There are multiple requirements under this program and a person must satisfy all these program requirements prior to submitting their application. At Globus, we can assist you to prepare the application package so you may have a smoother application process and reunite with your family members.

Eligibility Requirements

  • The person inviting you must be your child or grandchild who is a Permanent Resident or a Canadian Citizen.
  • Your child or grandchild must have signed a letter of invitation.
  • You must have medical insurance to cover your stay.
  • The child or the grandchild who is inviting you must prove sufficient funds to support you during this stay.

Business Visitor

Regardless of your reason to visit, all visitors must have a valid visitor visa to enter Canada unless they are from a visa exempt country. If you are from a visa exempt country you must obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Business visitors can conduct meetings and pursue business relations in Canada without the need of obtaining a work permit.

A business visitor does not enter the labour market and therefore is exempt from getting a work permit. As Canada is one of the prime destinations for business people, entrepreneurs and investors, the Government allows them to enter the country to conduct short term business activities such as attending conferences, and providing training.

A business visitor usually stays or visits for short periods that could be few days or few weeks and are allowed to stay in Canada for up to 6 months just like tourists. At Globus, we care about your business and we are there to assist you with your application and arrival to Canada.

Eligibility Requirements

  • You intend to stay less than 6 months.
  • You are visiting Canada to conduct business activities without entering the labour market.
  • Your primary source of income is outside of Canada.
  • Have a valid travel document.
  • Be in good health and not be a health risk to Canadian.
  • Have a clean criminal record.
  • Show ties back to your home country.
  • Leave Canada at the end of your visit.
  • Have sufficient funds for the duration of your stay.

Visitor Record

A visitor record is not a visitor visa. In order to remain in Canada you need to have a valid temporary visitor visa in addition to your valid status such as study permit or work permit. Visitor records are for people who would like to extend their stay or for those who wish to change their status from a student or a worker to a visitor. It is always important to be aware of the expiry date of your valid status so you may submit your application to extend your stay. It is usually advised to apply for a visitor record at least a month prior to the expiry. At Globus Immigration, we ensure that we work with our clients promptly and efficiently so that we are always ahead of time
