Work Permit

Get to know about Canada Visa.

Canada Work Permit, or a Work Visa, is issued
to eligible overseas individuals to work in that
country for a specific time period.
People need to apply for a Work Visa only after
getting a job offer or an employment contract
from a Canadian employer. The employer must
obtain from ESDC (Employment and Social
Development Canada) an LMIA (Labour Market
Impact Assessment), which gives them
permission to recruit foreign skilled workers for
occupations that cannot be filled in by citizens
or permanent residents of Canada.
As one of the world’s leading economies
Canada is a great destination for individuals
seeking to work abroad. The Canadian Work
Permit Visa allows business people, permanent
workers, temporary workers, students and
others to work in Canada. Typically, applicants
need to have a job offer in hand in order to
apply for the work permit visa.

If you want to work in Canada and don’t know where to start – we can help you with selecting your options and the most appropriate immigration stream that is available for foreign workers. To start, those who wish to work in Canada, whether it’s long-term or short-term, must obtain aΒ validΒ work permit.

A work permit is a document issued by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and, in most cases, allows you to work exclusively for the employer that is indicated in the document and perform a specific job. A work permit is also restricted to a specific location and time of work, or, in certain cases, it can be anΒ Open Work Permit. It is important to understand at the very beginning of the application process what category your future job falls into, and the eligibility requirements you need to meet in order for your application to be successful.

Regular Work Permit (Employer Specific)

The most common steps and requirements to obtain a work permit are:

β–ͺ️Get a job offer from an eligible Canadian employer.

β–ͺ️The employer has to apply and go through the LMIA application.

β–ͺ️Be eligible for a job in Canada (have no criminal record, pose no threat to national security, do not work for ineligible employers, be in good health and be prepared to leave Canada when the permit expires.

Open Work Permit

You may be eligible for an open work permit if you’ve been included in an application for permanent residence, or an application for permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. In this case, the application must fall under one of the following categories:

β–ͺ️Federal Skilled Worker.
β–ͺ️Canadian Experience Class.
β–ͺ️Provincial Nominee Program.
β–ͺ️Federal Skilled Trades Program.
β–ͺ️Family Class.
β–ͺ️Caring for Children Class.
β–ͺ️Caring for People with High Medical Needs Class.
With this type of work permit, your job placement is not restricted to a specific employer and you may work for any employer unless the company is listed as ineligible on the list of employers who failed to comply with the conditions.

Overall, the process of getting a work permit – beginning with the application, getting an LMIA from your future employer, and getting the actual documents may take a couple of weeks to a couple of months. It also depends on the type of work you are applying for. If your job is at the managerial, executive or professional level, you may be eligible for a two-week application process.
