OBTAINING A WORK PERMIT
The process has once again changed for obtaining annual work permits as of November 2015.
Each employer needs to complete the necessary forms online through the Employer Portal. that can be found at the following link: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/e-services/employer-portal.asp This link includes a very helpful Employer Portal enrolment guide and an Employer Portal User Guide.
The first step is to enroll in the Employer Portal. Once you have enrolled you can proceed with next steps as outlined in the guide.
IMPORTANT: You will be given a username, password and a GCKey. Be sure to keep all of this information on file for future use.
Once enrolled you will be directed to complete the Employer Compliance form and submit a fee. Once this is done, you will be ready to go to the border and get your work permits.
Note: Next year you will need to sign in to the portal using your username, password and GCKey and complete the Employer Compliance and submit the necessary fees again.
We are unable to go into the Employer Portal ourselves so if you have any feedback on this process that we can share with others, please email or call Laurie or Andre at NOTO at 705-472-5552 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
