Let’s dive into the job scene in Canada, where your dreams can take flight with either a temporary or a permanent job offer. So, are you ready for the details? Cool, let’s roll!

Firstly, a permanent job offer is like a golden ticket in the Express Entry game. Score a permanent job offer backed by an LMIA, and you’re looking at an extra 50 or 200 points on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and snagging an NOC code starting with 00? That’s a boost of 200 points, my friend. Those are the prominent senior management roles. Other NOC categories: 0, 1, 2, or 3? Those are still a solid 50 points.

But wait, the bonus points aren’t a guaranteed golden ticket to permanent residence. However, they increase your chances of getting that coveted Invitation to Apply (ITA) from the Express Entry pool. If you make it, you can join the perks club. You’ll be able to live and work anywhere in Canada and sponsor family members, and after three years, Canadian citizenship could be in your future.

Now, you should also understand the temporary permit. Bagging a job offer starts your journey to a Temporary Work Permit (TRP). It’s the express lane to Canada, with IRCC aiming to process work permits outside Canada in 60 days. But there’s a chance for a twist. This twist is that your Canadian boss might flip the script and offer you a permanent full-time gig. That’s a form of arranged employment under the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and it will bag you an extra 15 points in the CRS.

But can you juggle both? Absolutely! Say hello to dual intent. Apply for both permanent and temporary statuses. This dual status is like having your cake and eating it, too. You show Canada you’re serious about living in Canada and willing to stay there for a short or long time, all at once. Remember, temporary residents should show they’re leaving when their approved stay wraps up. But, if you’ve got permanent plans, let them know when you start applying for temporary residence.

Now, let’s tackle the tricksters. Sadly, there are sometimes fake job offers. Remember, legitimate offers come from known companies. If it’s unsolicited, a high-paying job with vague requirements or the email smells fishy; you should be careful!

Legit businesses often sport their domain names. And here are a few red flags: if they ask you to shell out cash or share personal details like your SIN, you should hit the brakes. You shouldn’t pay for a genuine job offer; your SIN is for after you’ve already sealed the deal.
