Work In Canada

Working in Canada is a perfect way to gain Canadian experience and use many available pathways to become a permanent resident.

If you are interested to be legally employed in Canada, you will need a work permit. There are several types of work permits available in Canada:

  • Open work permit – enables you to work for any employer in any industry and location;
  • 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.
