Default Info please on temp work visa!

hello all-could someone please give me a rough idea of how long it would take from start to finish in applying for a-6 month/ year long work visa[if there is such a thing?] to either b-granted or denied!
Hope this question makes sense!-basically I want to work there as soon as possible-I,m a plasterer by trade and would like to work in Canada before I get too old!!!!
Any information would be great!

Not sure that they do open work permits. You will probably have to find a job and get the employer to get HRSDC approval with a LMO. Once you have all that then London seems to take about a month to process the TWP.

Someone else can let you know if your trade is in demand as that does help with the LMO.

take a look at www.cic.gc.ca or www.canada.org.uk not sure about current processing times but I am sure others will know.

Depends on province...

Getting LMO in BC takes around 2-3 mths (if your employer is pushy this can be done quicker)

WP from London 4-6 weeks (although you can get WP issued on landing instead).
