Hello, I am going to create this thread to document my entire journey of applying for LMIA, getting a work permit and then eventually getting PR for Canada. Profile Age - 33 Nationality - Indian Dependents - 2 (Spouse and Child) EE Score - around 350 (Because of no academic qualifications) IELTS - 7.5 overall Visitor visa Denied (May 2019) I was recently denied a Visitors visa to Canada, which i applied myself using the online portal. I have traveled to at least 20 countries with at least 20 trips in last 10 years to US. The reason for denial was standard letter "We don't feel you will return to your home country". In retro-respect, i feel the application was denied because i didn't provide enough documents (or any documents for that matter). I have visas for a lot of countries and i thought based on travel history, any documents showing financial stability or ties to my home country won't be required (lesson learned). I could easily apply again with a good supporting set of documents but my attorney that is doing the LMIA and work permit is suggesting i must wait and just focus on LMIA application. LMIA Application and process (Started in May 2019, submitting application around Aug 20th 2019) Started this process around end of may and last 3 months has been just going back and forth between attorney and there team to create business plan and provide support documents for Owner operated LMIA application as a owner in BC with Salary of $55 per hour (High wage category). According to my attorney this type of application is expedited and gets a decision in 10 Business days, but lately they have been seeing applications taking as long as 4 weeks. We should be faxing in the application from my attorney's office sometimes next week (Aug 19 to Aug 23 2019). I have opened a bank account in Canadian Bank, and sent $150,000 to my account as proof of funds for the business, we will be attaching this to LMIA application. Feel free to ask questions or provide any feedback you might have.
