Canada is a country of wealth and opportunity. Each year thousands of newcomers come to Canada for the purposes of work. Working in Canada will provide you with valuable experience as well as a secure pathway to Permanent Residency.

Work is defined in Canada as being paid either wages or compensation for service. Volunteering can also qualify for work in some instances.

All foreign nationals working in Canada are required to apply for a valid work permit before entering Canada. In some cases, you may apply for a work permit from within Canada or at a port of entry.

Not all foreign nationals are eligible to apply for work permits. Before applying to come work in Canada, it is recommended you get a full immigration assessment from a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant.

Types of Work Permits

Open Work Permit
Open Work Permits are available for individuals who qualify under the International Mobility Program. To be eligible for an Open Work Permit you must meet certain criteria.

Closed Work Permits and LMIAs
Most Temporary Foreign Workers come to Canada on closed work permits, which limit the location and conditions of the work one can do. Obtaining a closed work permit usually starts with an employer making an application for a Labour Market Impact Assessment, which is the written authorization needed to hire a Foreign Worker. It is common for Employers to “name” their foreign worker in their applications, which would then grant access to an individual to apply for a work permit.

Do I need a Work Permit to Work In Canada?
With some exceptions, most individuals coming to Canada will require a work permit.

  • Called exactly on time. It was a complimentary session but he still made sure I knew my options and what would be most beneficial. Didn't pressure me into paying for further services, but I will likely do so anyway because of this experience. For a free 20 minute session? Excellent. Thank you
