I am working in a company in the USA. My company has an office in Toronto. My current visa L1-B will be maxed out in September end, 2021. My company is willing to transfer me to Toronto and I am exploring an option to move there for good.
If I convince my company to get an LMIA for the position, I would like to use those points to qualify for the Express entry PR program. My CRS score without a job offer will be around 422. Having a job offer will change it to 472 and that might work for me.
Before I push my employed to start the process and file LMIA as well, I want to understand the below information,
- Can I start working in the Toronto office with the job offer and a work permit and then apply for the PR claiming the same job offer points?
- How long does it take for the PR process to complete after I submit the application with a Job offer?
- How long does it take to prepare the PR application ( in general) if I am doing it myself. Or if I take help from some immigration attorney in Canada?
