To work in Canada as a non-resident or citizen, you must obtain a work visa. The IRCC issues work Visas for Canada under the Temporary Foreign Work Program. You can be considered for a work permit by various means, including:
- Obtaining a job offer from a Canadian employer.
- Some employers are required to provide a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
- LMIA proves to the Canadian Government that there is a need for foreign workers to fill.
- Other requirements may include candidate establishing a connection to Canada.
The type of work permit you need is dependent on the kind of work that you do. Work Permits are temporary immigration permits to Canada. For more information on if you are eligible to work in Canada, talk to one of our licensed consultants.
