CPTPP Work Permit - Immigration Consultation


The CPTPP (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) work permit is a type of work permit available to citizens of countries that are part of the CPTPP who have a job offer in Canada in a qualifying occupation. The CPTPP work permit is designed to facilitate the movement of businesspeople and skilled workers between Canada and the other CPTPP countries. To be eligible for a CPTPP work permit​,​ the applicant must meet requirements such as: >Be a citizen of a CPTPP member country: The CPTPP work permit is only available to citizens of CPTPP member countries. >Have a job offer in a qualifying occupation: The CPTPP work permit is available for certain professional occupations​,​ which are listed in the CPTPP agreement. The applicant must have a job offer in one of these occupations. >Meet the qualifications required for the job: The applicant must have the qualifications required for the job​,​ such as a degree or certification in the relevant field. >Meet any language requirements: Depending on the occupation​,​ the applicant may need to demonstrate proficiency in English or French. >Meet any other requirements: There may be additional requirements depending on the specific occupation. Once the applicant has met the eligibility requirements​,​ they can apply for a CPTPP work permit. The application process includes presenting the job offer and supporting documentation​,​ as well as answering questions about the intended job and duration of stay. It's important to note that the CPTPP work permit is not a pathway to permanent residency in Canada. It is intended for temporary work only. However​,​ a successful work experience in Canada may provide opportunities for the applicant to apply for permanent residency through other programs​,​ such as the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Request legal advice as early as possible in your application process.
