Canadian Work Permit Refused because of lack of Ties to home country.

Canadian Work Permit Refused?

I applied twice for a Canadian work visa complete with all the required documents and papers like valid LMO (Labour Market Opinion) approval and job offer from a prospective employer situated in Alberta. However my application for a work permit was refused twice for the sole reason that I did not demonstrate sufficient ties that would satisfy Canada Immigration of my intention to return to my home country.

I am confused why such an unfair judgment when in fact I have no criminal record here in my country of origin and I answered truthfully the application form for work permit and my only intention is just to work for two years and I will return home immediately after the contract expires. my only intention is to work. hope you can be of help.


Canadian Work Permit Refused: Our Immigration Law Firm Answers

Canadian Work Permit Refusals are common when an immigration officer is not satisfied that the applicant has demonstrated sufficient ties to their home country. Remember work permits are tempoary by nature and as such  it is important to show that once your work permit expires you will leave Canada. Just stating this information in an application is usually not enough. Rather as part of the application package, you should include documents showing your ties to Canada such as family, property and employment etc. Having two Canadian Work Permit Refusals makes things more difficult. In this case, it would be best to hire an immigration lawyer to represent you for a third try.
