Section 200 of IRPR: The Foundations
Before delving into the specifics of the regulation, it’s essential to get acquainted with its primary purpose. Section 200 of the IRPR guides the issuance of work permits in Canada. The section outlines the circumstances where work permits may be issued, refused, or where they are not necessary.
Key Provisions Under Section 200 of IRPR
Several key provisions are embedded within Section 200. It explicitly states that an officer may issue a work permit to a foreign national in Canada if several conditions are met. These conditions include:
1. The foreign national has submitted an application for the work permit,
2. The officer is satisfied that the foreign national will leave Canada by the end of the authorized period,
3. The foreign national is not inadmissible to Canada,
4. The foreign national intends to perform work as described in their application, among other factors.
Section 200 also provides guidance on situations where work permits may not be issued. For instance, it states that work permits will not be issued to foreign nationals who intend to work for an ineligible employer or those listed under section 204.
Several case laws and judgments have explored the provisions of Section 200. These legal precedents have provided more clarity and understanding of how these provisions are interpreted and applied. Let’s delve into a few examples:
