Arranged Employment in Canada

Arranged Employment is one way to qualify under the Federal Skilled Worker Category of immigration.

Arranged Employment is possible when a Canadian employer extends an offer of full-time permanent employment in Canada to a foreign skilled worker.  The foreign skilled worker's Canadian Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa will be expedited so that the worker can come to Canada and start working for the Canadian employer quickly.

Arranged Employment is one of ways to qualify for a Canada Permanent Resident Visa through the Federal Skilled Worker category of immigration.  It also provides the Federal Skilled Worker applicant with up to an additional 10 points towards Citizenship and Immigration Canada's (CIC) selection factor requirement of 67 points.

Points can be awarded in a variety of scenarios:

The Applicant: And...

*At the time the permanent resident visa is issued, the applicant is expected to still hold a valid work permit

IMPORTANT NOTE: Individuals in Canada whose applications are accepted for review under the Federal Skilled Worker Class, and whose temporary work permit is due to expire, are eligible for a Bridging Work Permit. This work permit will allow them to stay in Canada until a final decision has been made on their immigration application.

An additional 5 points may also be awarded under the Adaptability Factor.
