Canadian Visas

With a GDP of $1.59 Trillion CAD, Canada has one of the world’s largest economies and is often cited as having some of the most dynamic and welcoming immigration policies. It’s no wonder that over 160,000 people procure temporary Canadian work visas each year.
Canada offers multiple immigration tracks for temporary work permits and permanent residence, so it’s important to align the objectives of employers and employees. USILAW informs clients of their options and plans long-term strategies that are based on client needs. So, whether you want to transfer your company’s personnel to Canada or hire foreign nationals already working locally, our global immigration attorneys can provide the comprehensive Canadian immigration services and solutions to seamlessly procure the necessary work permits.
Canada requires companies that are looking at foreign talent to use the Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER) system as a framework to classify occupations based on their skill level and educational requirements. This system helps employers identify the qualifications needed for various job roles and match them with the right candidates.

Under the TEER system, occupations are divided into categories that reflect the level of training, education, experience, and responsibilities required. This classification system replaces the previous National Occupational Classification (NOC) system and provides a more detailed approach to assessing job requirements. There are 6 TEERS as listed below:
For employers, understanding the TEER system is essential when hiring foreign workers, as it ensures that the candidates possess the necessary qualifications for the job. By aligning job requirements with the TEER categories, employers can streamline their recruitment process and comply with Canadian immigration regulations. This system also aids in evaluating the skill level of potential employees, helping employers make informed hiring decisions.
