Work Permits

How you can obtain a work permit

A work permit can be thought of as official authorizations from the government that allows applicants to come and work in Canada. There are several different options for work permits that require different application processes. The usual Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) work permits, post-graduate work permits, open work permits, work permits for live-in caregivers and foreign students, are the most common permits. Each requires a unique application process and requirements in order to successfully achieve.

The most important thing to remember is that there is no way for a foreigner to simply apply for a permit. In canada the labour market is protected from being over taken by a private foreign company, and one way they restrict access is by making the requirements very strict. Canada is different from other countries in the way that they issue work permits, and are not easily obtained.

Here a few items that are usually required to receive a permit:

  • A Canadian employer with a legitimate job offer
  • A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
  • Must have graduated from a Canadian Academic Institute
  • Work or study permit (Must be valid) held by spouse
