For decades, obtaining a job offer from a Canadian employer has been a mandatory requirement to apply for a work visa and one of the major conditions for applicants’ permanent residency applications.
Despite Canada being one of the top growing economies globally, and of course, foreign workers being one of the main sources to fill the labor shortage, securing a job without being in Canada has been a challenge.
We, at Green Light, work with more than 700 companies across Canada and assist them to recruit local and foreign workers to fill their labor shortage.
On average, the process of obtaining a work visa takes about six months.
This can take up to 3 months.
Regular processing time 2-3 months (this process maybe irrelevant if the employer already has an approved LMIA)
Processing time depends on the country of your residency. Usually it’s about 2-4 months (this process can be faster if you have a visa to Canada or you’re a citizen of a visa exempt country)

The total cost of our services differ from one program to another, usually between USD$ 9,000 -15,000 depending on your family composition, country of your citizenship, and other factors paid in installments according to the retainer agreement.
We will be able to quote the exact cost only after you become our client formally and your immigration strategy is determined by our employment and legal team.
No, the visa services we provide are covered by the client, before coming to Canada.
Please be informed that no sponsorship for your visa process is provided by the Canadian government, our company, or an employer.
However, we never request the total cost to be paid at once or upfront. The price of our services is paid by 3 to 5 installments depending on the program, in accordance with reasonable milestones/once your case advances to a specific stage of immigration. Therefore the process is flexible and guaranteed for our clients. You may consider 2 to 3 months intervals between the installment payments.
For example, in case you decide to proceed with LMIA-Based work permit, you will have to pay the first installment upfront, the second payment is upon getting the job offer letter, the third one - upon receiving positive LMIA and the final payment is when we submit your application for work permit to a visa office.
On average, it requires 3-18 months to complete your immigration/visa process. Processing time varies from program to program.
No one can guarantee you a job or a visa to Canada. Please, be aware of this and avoid companies who make these promises.
However, with our success rate more than 90%, we can guarantee that we do all our best to get you through the visa and/or immigration process successfully.
In addition, we are committed to the Zero Risk Policy, meaning, in case we are unable to provide you with the job offer within 3 months (since the date you initiate your application officially and provide us with all the necessary documents), you get the full refund.
