Canadian Embassies are now accepting applications from international skilled workers under Global Skill Strategy (GSS) immigration program for the fast-track issuance of Canadian Work Permits with exemptions from various requirements. With the help of Global skill Strategy Program Canadian companies get the benefit of recruiting their foreign skilled staff to get their work permits processed within 2 weeks time if all the requirements are met.
Who Can Avail Global Skill Strategy Program for Canada?
Everyone hates longer VISA application processing times and wants to get their application processed soon so if that facility is available then why not we take it now! So, please be attentive my readers because today i’m going to tell you which of the two skilled workers are actually eligible for faster work VISA processing facility for Canada.
Highly skilled workers with a Canadian job (Not more than 15-30 Days Work Commitment) classified under TEER category 0 or 1 as per National Occupational Classification (NOC) are eligible to avail Global Skill Strategy Program.
Whereas, Canadian Global Skill Strategy Program is also available to scholars and researchers only if they provide evidence of conducting their research studies in a Canadian degree awarding University or affiliated institute for a maximum duration of 120 days once each year.
Check Your Eligibility for Global Skill Strategy Program
I know you might be wondering if you can take submit an application for a Canadian work permit for Global Skill Strategy program so let me answer this here. I’ll start with the applicants of the International Experience Canada program and unfortunately, they are not eligible to apply for GSS two weeks of fast application processing program for a Canadian Work Permit.
The skilled workers not living in Canada and exempted from Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) can actually submit a work permit application and get their applications processed fast-track via GSS program only if their job is as per National Occupational Classification (NOC) for Training, Education, Experience and Responsibilities (TEER) category 0 or 1.
However, skilled workers living outside of Canada with LMIA can get their applications processed faster with GSS if their employer has a positive rating under Canadian Talent Stream.
I must tell you here that the spouse, children and common-law partner of the skilled worker are also eligible for GSS program with two weeks of application processing time for a Canadian work permit, study VISA, or visitor VISA program.
Requirements for Fast Track VISA Application Processing
First of all the skilled workers will receive complete instructions from their Canadian employers for processing their VISA application and for that they must be staying outside of Canada to submit an online application with a police character certificate, health exam report, receipt of processing fees, and submit their biometric information. All of these above mentioned documents be in acceptable translation formats and the VISA processing for family members/spouses of skilled workers must also be completed at the same time.
So, if you are a highly skilled worker or a researcher interested to work or conduct research in Canada then instead of waiting longer for a Canadian Work VISA application processing; take advantage of Global Skill Strategy and get your application processed in 2 weeks’ time.
