Open restricted permit – restricts the occupation or the location but not the employer;
Employer-specific work permit – authorizes to work for a specific employer who successfully completed the procedure of Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA);
Seasonal work visa – usually for a period of 120 days or less, in most of cases for a specific employer;
Permits based on International Mobility Program, youth exchange, young professionals, stagiaires etc. – usually open permits, available for foreign nationals of some countries (e.g. France);
North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) work permit;
Live-in-caregiver work permit;
Bridging Open Work Permit – available for provincial nominees;
Post-Graduate Open Work Permit – enables foreign graduates to stay and work in Canada, etc.
The most important requirement for most of the permits is to have a genuine offer of employment from a legitimate Canadian employer.
