Choosing the type of Work Permit in filling-up IMM1295E Form

Postby littlerock143 on Mon Aug 29, 2011 5:49 am

Hello!

I am helping my friend fill-up his IMM1295E form (Application Form for Work Permit Made Outside of Canada) and we are unsure about what to choose (whether Open Work Permit or Other) on the question about type of work permit that is being applied for. The options given in the form under this question are:

International Experience Canada Program
Live-in Caregiver Program
Open Work Permit
Other
Seasonal Agricultural Work Program

My friend is applying for a work permit based on an LMO-required job offer as a NOC 6661 - Cleaner. Apparently, such work falls under the Pilot Project for Occupations Requiring Low Level of Formal Training (NOC C & D). Given this information, do we choose Open Work Permit or Other as the Type of Work Permit Being Applied For?

Thank you very much and I look forward to your reply.

"Other" would apply.

I am at the first stage of gathering documents for the application and it seems I could quality for A Work Permit without needing a labour market opinion under the following:

Entrepreneurs and intra-company transferees
Some types of entrepreneurs, workers transferring within a company, and other types of workers who will provide significant benefit to Canadians or permanent residents by working in Canada.

I am a self employed sports massage therapist working with elite and amateur athletes in the U.S. My girlfriend live outside of Vancouver and it would' be great to be able to help individuals there. There is a small organic spa there that is excited to work with me as an independent contractor and I know I will develop more. Perhaps letter from people there attesting to the quality of my work and that they would hire me if I had a work permit.

Any useful thoughts would be appreciated.

Although these provisions exist, the provisions are in reality very restrictive. Instructions to officers dictate that it is an uncommon candidate that would be eligible under these provisions. The information supplied does not suggest that your situation is consistent with cases which may be permitted, but only an immigration official can determine this.
