Default Applying for TWP at Border

Hello All

hope someone can help, i've just been reading through the CIC site about applying for a TWP at the border and I'm a little confused. It says

You can apply for a work permit as you enter Canada, but only if you meet the following requirements:

you are temporary resident visa exempt and
your job does not need a labour market opinion from HRSDC (some exceptions apply) or
you hold a labour market opinion from HRSDC.


What I'm not sure about is the temporary resident visa exempt bit. I know the UK is exempt from needing a visitor visa but what about temp resident visa? Does this mean we cannot apply at the border? I've seen people on this site that have entered this way before so has this changed?

I think TRV is NOT required by UK citizens holding a UK passport. I was able to get a TWP at Pearson Airport (intra-company transferee, so no LMO required) and I certainly did not have any form of temp resident visa.

Thanks. I did some more digging through the CIC website and UK citizens do not need temp residence visas. So we're ok to apply at the border

I've also discovered they have changed the rules again (as of last week) on obtaining an LMO, the employer no longer needs to advertise for a minimum of 3 months. Well thats how I've read it anyway, please let me know if i've got this wrong

That change was actually made a few months ago, but you're quite right, it's no longer 3 months.

Sort of - I applied at the border for a TWP to buy and operate a business.

Drop me a line with any questions you have.
