Title: Empowering Clients: Securing IRPR Section 200 Work Permits in Canada

As specialists in immigration law, at LexLords Canada Immigration Lawyers, we have consistently been driven by the sole purpose of aiding our clients through the often complex Canadian immigration channels. This endeavor recently culminated in a triumph when we successfully assisted a client in securing their International Mobility Program (IMP) work permit under section 200 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR).

Understanding the Legal Framework

First, it is pertinent to understand what IRPR Section 200 entails. Under the International Mobility Program (IMP), foreign nationals can be allowed to work in Canada on a temporary basis under an employer-specific work permit. This comes under Section 200 of the IRPR, which relates to foreign nationals entering Canada as a crucial part of cultural, social or economic growth and development.

Our Approach

In this case, our client was an accomplished professional from a special economic niche, aiming to lend their expertise in Canada. Realizing the potential magnitude of our client’s contribution to the Canadian economy, we embarked on a strategic approach to secure the work permit.

Firstly, we conducted a meticulous review of our client’s profile to elucidate their potential contributions to Canada’s development. We prepared detailed documentation, thoroughly highlighting their qualifications and professional achievements. We made sure to underline that allowing our client to work in Canada would have a significantly positive impact on its economy and social fabric.

Secondly, recognizing the challenges associated with navigating through immigration laws and their unique interpretations, we took measures to ensure that all procedures were strictly adhered to. We worked closely with our client, explaining every step in detail and advising them on lawfully acquiring an offer of employment.

Relevant Case Laws

While working on this case, we carefully studied previous judgments – particularly the Federal Court decisions in “Agraira v. Canada (Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness)” 2013 and “Kanthasamy v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration)” 2015. We noted the importance these cases placed on considering the applicant’s individual circumstances and the innovative impact they could bring.

Further, we delved into the nuanced understanding of “public policy considerations” as expressed in these cases. This strategic approach and in-depth understanding of case law helped us frame our arguments effectively, significantly contributing to the positive outcome of our client’s case.

The Triumph

Our detailed and methodical approach eventually bore fruit. Our client was awarded the work permit under section 200 of IRPR, allowing them to contribute their unique skill set to Canada’s economic development.
