Have you applied for a temporary work permit in Canada? Was your application refused? It can be quite disheartening to have your application refused due to unseen mistakes. However, there are a few things you must know about applying for a work permit in Canada to avoid any future refusals.
What Are the Reasons for Your Work Permit Refusal?
Often, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) may refuse your temporary work permit application if:
- You are inadmissible to Canada
- You were unable to convince the immigration officer of your intention of leaving the country at the end of your authorization stay
- You were unable to demonstrate your ability to perform the duties of your job
If the immigration officer thinks that you won’t leave Canada at the end of your stay based on your travel history, family ties in Canada, employment situation, or the purpose of your visit, then your work permit application will be refused.
If you have applied for a Bridging Open Work Permit (BOWP) as the sponsored spouse of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, your application can be refused based on the genuineness of your relationship with the sponsor.
