One of the most common instances for people who are interested in studying in Canada is to enter the country as a visitor, to search for academic programs of their liking, and then trying to find a way to apply for a study permit.
If you are planning to change your status as a student while being a visitor, it is recommended to do it as far in advance as possible trying to avoid the expense and the burden of having to file for two processes at the same time.
A lot of students and visitors wish to gain work experience while offering their volunteer work to Canadian employers. Volunteer work is a very complex situation to understand when it comes to immigration laws and regulations.
Studying in Canada is expensive and most international students use the benefit of working while studying in order to bear some of the living expenses of their stay in the country. Not all students can work while studying.
The processing times for the different applications are constantly changing and clients stress out when their current immigration documents expire and they have not received a reply from the Canadian government. However, as long as the applicant submitted the application PRIOR to the expiry date of their document, the person will be covered under IMPLIED STATUS, this means that the person is legally allowed to remain in Canada until a decision has been made on their applications.
These Regulations offer greater protection to temporary residents by preventing foreign nationals from gaining admittance to Canada through an institution whose sole purpose is the facilitation of foreign nationals into Canada. These Regulations also provide more assurances to Canadians that temporary residents on a study permit will have a positive impact on Canadian society and the Canadian labour market by ensuring that foreign students are primarily in Canada for the purpose of study and are actively contributing to the economy through tuition and living expenses – the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Canada said recently.
In order to be successful during your immigration process it is important to consider that the wage offered by your employer plays an important role. During a Labour Market Opinion or even when applying under a different stream for a work permit or for permanent residence, the immigration officers rely on the statistics provided by working-in-canada.
We are currently offering the opportunity for foreign nationals to acquire Canadian credentials at recognized institutions either to work in Canada in the future or to return to their countries and obtain a better professional position there. We offer a variety of programs in different areas that allow our clients to perform better in the Canadian labour market or their local one.
If you have a Canadian Visa or a permit that will be expiring soon, you may consider the possibility of extending your status in Canada.
Telling a Canadian employer to help you stay in Canada can be challenging. Most Canadian employers are unfamiliar with Canadian immigration laws and are afraid to deal with the Canadian government.
