About company

MB MIGRATION SERVICE (CANADA) INC. is an immigration consulting company founded in 2011 and operated by Milorad Borota, Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant.

The following web sites are owned and managed by MB MIGRATION SERVICES:

LMIA Applications

Canadian employers must obtain Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) letter for every foreign worker they want to bring to Canada to work for their company (there are very few exceptions to this rule).

LMIA application process is complicated (LMIA application packages normally have around 80 pages - this includes application form, company documents, copies of the job ads and any other relevant documents), it is lengthy (job needs to be advertised for at least one month before LMIA application is sent to Service Canada. After that Service Canada takes at least 2-3 months to assess LMIA applications, sometimes it takes more than 3 months. During the time of LMIA application processing employer must keep advertising the vacant position and interview any candidates that need to be interviewed).

Many Canadian employers want to hire foreign worker(s) but they do not have time for LMIA application process and most of them are not familiar with the process either

For that reason they are willing to hire immigration consultants or lawyers to help them with LMIA applications.

If you think Canadian employer you contacted may need assistance with their application for LMIA for you or that they may benefit from our other services you can send them one of these documents:

Work permit applications

Authorization to work in Canada is called (temporary) work permit. Practically all jobs require work permit (again, much like with LMIA there are some exceptions to this rule).

For work permits issued without LMIA (small number of them) Canadian employers must pay Employer Compliance Fee of $230 and give job offer to foreign worker applying for work permit.

For LMIA based work permits foreign workers must submit their application to the Canadian visa office responsible for their country of citizenship or current residence.

In case of those foreign workers who do not require visitor visa to enter Canada they can apply for work permit when they enter Canada (at the airport or border crossing).

Mr. Borota can help you apply for your work permit while you are still outside Canada or when you are in Canada.

"Flag-polling" (Work permit applications at border crossing)

In some situations foreign workers already in Canada can apply for their work permit at the Canadian border. In that case they would formally leave Canada and immediately return to Canada and apply for their work permit.

If everything is smooth the whole process can be over in 30-45 minutes and the foreign worker would return with their new work permit.

This process is known as flag-polling ("walking around the Canadian flag-poll and returning to Canada")

However sometimes flag-polling turns into a nightmare for foreign workers. It does not happen often but when it happens usually leaves the foreign worker traumatized and without their work permit.

Mr. Borota can help you prepare for your work permit application at Canadian border-crossing. That way you are likely to avoid mistakes commonly made in such situations.

PR Application

Most foreign workers in Canada want to stay in Canada permanently. They also want to bring their family members to Canada. There are many immigration programs in Canada which give opportunity to foreign workers to apply for permanent resident (PR) status for them and for their family members. Some of those programs are federal immigration programs however most of the foreign worker focused programs are so called Provincial Immigration Programs.

PR applications in provincial immigration programs go through two stages:

  • 1) First foreign worker needs to secure provincial nomination and after that
  • 2) foreign worker needs to prepare and send their application package to the federal government (they have the final word on who will become permanent resident in Canada).

Applications for permanent resident status in Canada can be complicated and time consuming. Assistance of an experience and knowledgeable immigration consultant can be of great benefit in those situations.

If you want to apply for permanent resident status in Canada we suggest that you contact Mr. Borota and see if you could benefit from his assistance.
