Default immigrating with teenagers. Which Visa does he need!!

Hi,
My we are from the UK & my husband has been offered a LMO with a trucking company in Saskatoon.

Our biggest worry is, our 19 year old son wants to find work there but we do not know which visa he needs, how we go about getting one and how long it takes. He wants to work on a ranch and has been offered work there, but they don't have LMO's!!.

Also I have been told 'on here' that I would not be able to get an open works visa based on my husbands LMO in Saskatoon.

Any information would be grateful
Thanks
Sam

I believe if he wants to work then he will need his own twp and lmo

This link will be of use to you

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/work/index.asp

It is up to the employer to apply for the WP my guess is that they are not
familiar with applying for LMO's.

Correction - the employer applies for the LMO, it is the potential employee who applies for the work permit either direct or at POE ( maybe not POE these days - someone could elaborate ).

He can apply for an International Experience Canada Working holiday visa, that will give him a 1 year work permit which he could then apply for a 2nd year for if necessary. The applications will be available again in January, register here: http://www.canadainternational.gc.ca...nce/index.aspx

I am presuming that your husband intends to apply for Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee program after 6 months working (http://www.saskimmigrationcanada.ca/trucker), so your son would probably not need a 2nd year as he would be included on the application for PR.

To the OP it is correct that you will not be able to apply for an open work permit based on your husbands occupation as it does not fall in the NOC matrix level of skills 0 A & B.

As Tangram has mentioned, it's the employee, not the employer that applies for the TWP.

This is true for the OP, but just for the sake of anybody else reading it is possible for spouses of truckers to get a SOWP in other provinces.

Not wishing to split hairs but Im only quoting the following

•Your employer helps determine if you are eligible. Your employer may need to get a labour market opinion from Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC). A labour market opinion confirms that the employer can fill the job with a foreign worker. To find more information about which jobs do not require a labour market opinion, see Eligibility to apply. You can also find out more about HRSDC labour market opinions in the Frequently asked questions section.

I was referring that where jobs require a LMO its the EMPLOYERS responsibility not the employee. It is the employees responsibility to apply for the WP where eligible. Based on the posts prior to my response it would be pointless applying for a WP if there was no LMO applied for. I hope this clears up any confusion.

This link will also be of use Working temporarily in Canada: Active pilot projects

Some provinces and territories have signed agreements with CIC that address federal‑provincial /territorial collaboration on temporary foreign workers. These agreements underscore a commitment to develop pilot projects to attract certain temporary foreign workers, as well as their spouses, common-law partners and working-age dependent children to a particular province or territory.

Eligibility information and deadlines for current pilot projectsIf your family members want to work in Canada

If you are authorized to work in Canada, your accompanying family members may also be able to work here by virtue of the permit you were issued. No other authorization is required. If they intend to work while in Canada, they should find out if they are eligible for an “open” work permit. Open work permits allow them to work in any job with any employer. An open work permit also means that they may be hired without the employer having to obtain a labour market opinion (the normal authorization required). Certain jobs may require medical checks or licensing from professional organizations. Accompanying family members’ work permits will be valid for no longer than the duration of your own work permit.

Your spouse’s eligibility for an open work permit depends on the skill level of your job. If the job you are doing is listed as NOC 0, A or B in the National Occupational Classification, your spouse or common-law partner will be eligible for an open work permit. You must also be authorized to work in Canada for a period of at least six months.

If you are working in an occupation that requires a lower level of formal training, your spouse may also be eligible for an open work permit through an active pilot project. Find out more.

In addition, your dependent children may be eligible for an open work permit through an active pilot project. Find out more.

Accompanying family members must always apply for their own work permits. They should apply for one at the same time as you, before entering Canada. If they decide to work only after they arrive, they can apply once they are here.
Here in Alberta , children of TWP holders are allowed to work when they reach 18. In other provinces they can start work earlier under this pilot scheme. This has been a real bone of contention for us as our daughter turns 18 early next year, but has been unable to get a part time job since we arrived.

Unless we get our PR by her birthday, which may possibly happen as we've recently had our meds, she will have to apply for her own open work permit on her birthday (and then another 3 month wait for processing)

Just another thing to bear in mind if you are moving with teenagers. They find it incredibly frustrating when their peers all have part time jobs and are saving like mad for cars, Uni etc

You didn't actually include a link in your post, but I think it's probably the same one I've already given the OP on another thread. Bottom line is that because her hubby is a trucker and they are going to SK, neither she nor her son can work without a TWP in their own right (or a WHV in the son's case). It's a shame, but I can't see any other way around it unless SK suddenly decides to start a pilot project like BC or AB.

Also, if you could re-read the site rules re: copyright, and always use a link rather than copying and posting info from other website it would be appreciated, thx.
