Keeping in view the latest trends in the global market, various Canadian employers have developed a latest project in cooperation with CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada), HRDC (Human Resources Development Canada), SHRC (Software Human Resource Council) and Industry Canada.
Under the ‘Information Technology Workers Program’, the government of Canada is presently involved in granting temporary employment authorization visas under a special expedited process to skilled people and qualified professionals. Under this program, qualified candidates need to meet a few eligible conditions regarding education and employment experience to qualify for this work visa.
Generally, any overseas professional wanting to work in Canada must get a valid job offer from HRD and EA (employment authorization) from CIC. The job-specific validity was replaced by a national validity letter under the pilot project for a few software positions:

At present, workers having a job offer in any of the seven descriptions can be given Employment Authorizations even without the need for the employer to contact its local HRCC. Temporary employment authorization happens to be a document given by the immigration official that helps the holder of this document to work in Canada for the specific employer and for the mentioned time period. Although the Quebec government takes part in the Facilitated Processing of Employment Authorizations for Information Technology Workers, however, those temporary foreign workers wanting to take a job in Quebec need to get a CAQ(certificate d’acceptation du Quebec.
If you have got an offer of job in any one of the above stated categories, then kindly contact canadaupdates.com for further details. We will be happy to assist you as well as your employer through the entire process of work visa application.
Kindly note that moving to Canada on a temporary work visa does not enable you to apply for a Permanent Residence in Canada. So, if you wish to move to Canada on a permanent basis, you need to apply under the Independent Immigration (Skilled Workers) category.
If you happen to be an employer in Canada wanting to issue temporary work permits to software specialists, you are invited to contact us.
