Timeline for Work Permit Approval

Discussion in 'Housing' started by ilee1, Sep 9, 2019.

  1. Hi there,

    I am currently situated outside Canada. An employer in Vancouver BC intended to hire me and was asking about the timeline for the work permit to be approved.

    1. Assuming the employer has had the LMIA, how long does it take for the approval?
    2. Where to apply for the work permit? What is the website? Can I apply it myself?

    Thanks in advance,
    Chris
