Default Help with current Work visa

I am new to this site but was wondering if anyone can help me. I have applied for a work visa for 6 months to work in Vancouver as a falconer or eagle trainer.I have been before and applied for 3 month visas and had no problem getting and it was quite quick but I know the rules have changed now in June but It hasd been 5 months now and I still have nothing. I was offferd a full time job car and house from an canadian employer. Is this normal now to take this long to process, they say they are making sure that there is no Canadain that can do my job before they give me the file number. I would be so pleased if someone can help me. Many Thanks

Hi, and welcome to BE.

Can you clarify exactly what you have applied for? You say it's a work visa, so is it a Temporary Work Permit? If so, has your employer already received the Labour Market Opinion (that's the bit where they have to prove they've advertised the job across Canada and been unable to find a Canadian willing, or able, to do the job)?

Also, you say you've had 3 month visas before, what kind of visa was that?

If you can give us a bit more info, then hopefully somebody can help you.
