Default Processing Time

Approximately what is the length of the processing time to receive a work permit from canada. My employer in Canada told me that they will allow me to transfer from here in the US to Canada, at the same position in the same company. How long will the process take from start to finish? Any idea anyone??

Thanks...

The usual answer, it depends. Does the position require HRDSC certification? Then the employer has to prove to HRDSC that they have advertised the position and that there are no Canadians/PRs available for the position with the required skill set and that wages and conditions are equivalent to the local market. Is it an intercompany transferee position, it has to meet the criteria contained in http://www.cic.gc.ca/manuals-/fw/fwe.pdfsh/fw/fwe.pdf 5.31
Or is a job that falls under a NAFTA exemption? See: http://www.cic.gc.ca/manuals-guides/english/fw/fwe.pdf App G.
So with the information given, no one can guess.
