On November 16, 2022, the names and codes for occupations in Canada will change and the SINP and IRCC will use the new National Occupation Classification system (dated 2021). All new applications will use the new system. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and 1-833-613-0485 if you have any questions.
If you are outside of Canada and have submitted a paper work permit application to the Government of Canada (GoC) that has not yet been processed, then you will need to resubmit it as an electronic application. Fees paid for the electronic application will be refunded at a later date when the paper application is received by the GoC and reviewed or you can request a refund using this process.
