My unique immigration situation that would impact my articling and future in Canada.

Hi,

So I am stuck in a very bizarre situation and would appreciate any input regarding my issue.

So I am an International student. I moved to Canada in 2010. I got my ontario high school diploma a year later and went to complete my undergraduate studies in psychology in 2015.

At this point of my life I was not sure what I was going to do so I decided to try to become a permanent resident through working in Canada. For that reason I applied for post graduation work permit and was looking for a job in my field. After failing to land a job, I shifted my focus to get into law school and got in.

I will finish law school in more than a year and then it would be time for articling. My problem is that I would need a work permit but there is no viable option for me to get one. 

Firstly, I can't get another PGWP since it is a once in a lifetime permit.

The other option would be to apply for work permit through Labour Market Impact assessment (LMIA). This option is not plausible as well since no articling job would receive a positive LMIA. 

That would leave me with doing the LPP program to become a licensed lawyer but then another problem arises after; how can I work after that?

I just find it ridiculous that someone like me who had spent most of his formidable life in Canada and went through all the academic process to become a licensed professional has no option to work after his studies.

You need to talk to an immigration lawyer

I did talk to one over the phone. His only answer was that you have to find an employer who can get a positive LMIA. Problem is that finding the needle in the haystack would be easier to do.
