Immigration and Visas

Immigrating to Canada involves applying  for a visa, either long-term or  short-term.  At the Battlefords Immigration Resource Centre, we can give you information on what types of Canadian visas there are, and which may be most suitable for the situation.  We are proud to be able to offer our clients the following services:

  • Access to visa application forms and guides
  • Access to computers to complete online applications

Work permits allow a person that is not a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident to work for a specific period of time.  These may be Closed Work Permits (can only work for one employer) or Open Work permits (can work for any employer).

We can help you find information on how to  apply for a work permit, change the work permit you currently have, or apply to extend your work permit.
