Default Can I get a working permit for a Part-time position 75%

Hi,

I have been offered a job in BC but it is 75% of full-time and the advert states this.
The employers have said they will do a LMIA but am worried that any offered position needs to be full-time to be granted a work permit.
Many Thanks

It will depend in which stream it is applied for (TFWP) or (IMP) and then if its a high wage or low wage position. High wage must be a minimum of 30 hours per week and full time.

This link has numerous things on hiring a foreign worker.

https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-...n-workers.html

You need to provide a few more details ie what type of job, NOC code if known, wage offered etc as this determines which of the 2 programmes (TFWP) or (IMP) the employer applies under. The IMP is hiring foreign workers (temporary) without an LMIA so it looks like you should be looking at the TFWP programme.

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me! The job is as Research Associate NOC 2121 (biologist) at a University. I believe the salary is around $42, 000 mark (plus and extra $6000 (superannuation/pension ???)). It is for 1 year minimum and will have a LMIA done. It would make sense if 30 hours per week is minimum, as this would be ~75%.

Thanks for your help!
