Do you need an LMIA? If you do, your potential employer could be waiting for months for an approval before you can even submit an application for a work permit. IRCC's website should tell you the processing time for the Manila office. These are guidelines, however and often not accurate. Not knowing what kind of work permit you are looking for, or under what grounds the issuance would be, I cant really say how long. Your RCIC will also need time to prepare the application and a lot of that time depends on what documentation is needed. I suggest you contact an RCIC to book a consultation to see if you are eligible for a work permit to start.

For foreign workers, an offer of employment from a Canadian employer is usually required before the worker may be granted a Temporary Work Permit by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). There are several steps to this process. Depending upon the foreign worker's country of citizenship, a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) may also need to be obtained in order to enter Canada.
Step 1: Employer applies for Labour Market Impact Assessment, if necessary. Step 2: Employer extends Temporary Job Offer. Step 3: Foreign Worker applies for Work Permit. Step 4: Work Permit is issued.
