Working Visa


Work Permit

An immigration, refugee, and citizenship (IRCC) document known as a work permit typically entitles the holder to perform a certain job exclusively for the employer named on the permit. A work visa may be open-ended in some circumstances or restricted to a particular place and time of employment. It’s critical to know at the outset of the application procedure what category your future job will fall under and what qualifications you must fulfill in order for your application to be accepted.


There are two types of work permits:

Employer-specific work permits:

are given to foreign nationals who have accepted a job offer from a specific firm to work in Canada. Employers are required to include a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) before hiring a foreign person (job seeker).

The LMIA serves as official certification that no Canadian citizen or other permanent resident is qualified for the position.

Open work permits: are given to foreign nationals who do not already have an employment offer from Canada. As long as they abide by the terms of their work permit, foreign citizens with open work permits are permitted to work in Canada for any employer.
