Canadian Corporate immigration allows for companies in Canada to fulfill a shortage of workers in Canada. This is a tremendous opportunity for foreign workers who look to Canada to better their lives through employment access that is unavailable in their home countries. You too can take advantage of such an opportunity with the proper immigration guidance.
Through corporate immigration, authored businesses are capable of hiring individual from abroad. This business objective is achieved through a Labour Market Opinion (LMO) and Work Permit for the respective employee. Although it should certainly be noted that such positions are highly competitive and therefore only those armed with the most up-to-date immigration resources may find themselves ahead of the pack.
Alternatively, corporate immigration also allows companies abroad to relocate key personal and employees to their subsidiaries in Canada. Transactions as these are facilitated through free trade agreements such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) any many more. But, only those with the proper documentation will reap the rewards of such a monumental opportunity.

Who Can Sponsor Canadian Immigration?
Potential applicants will wonder who can sponsor Canadian immigration. Under special circumstances, the Canadian government allows corporations to sponsor foreign workers. However, this opportunity comes with challenges for the applicant, who must navigate the complexities of the country’s immigration system. Depending on your skills and situation, you may be best suited to approach Canadian sponsorship through a Labour Market Opinion, or a Provincial Nominee Program, or as a Canadian Permanent Resident.
Each of these options has its own requirements, and those requirements can change if, for instance, a certain trade has suddenly attracted Canadian workers to a specific site. For these and many other reasons, it is crucial for any migrant interested in being sponsored by a Canadian company to contact an immigration professional. The documentation demanded by the government is especially exacting; it varies between the federal and provincial levels, and from province to province. Laws also change, making it difficult for a migrant to know what documentation is required. An immigration professional can remove a tremendous amount of uncertainty. This is even truer if you want to bring your family with you. Choose an immigration professional who is trustworthy and understands both personal and corporate sponsorships.
