Working in Canada

Each year, thousands of skilled workers from different countries want to try their luck working in Canada by working in all sorts of temporary jobs. But for these skilled workers to be able to start working in Canada, they need to apply first for a work permit at a Canadian Visa office abroad. A Canadian work permit allows an individual from a foreign country to live and have a career working in Canada. In some cases, a temporary resident visa together with a Canadian work permit may be required before a person can be able to live and start working in Canada. Though in some job vacancies, or people who are in Canada for business purposes, a Canadian work permit is not necessary for them to start working in Canada.

But before a foreign worker should start applying for a work permit to start working in Canada, the employer must first get a written confirmation or a positive labour market opinion from the HRSDC or the Human Resources and Social Development Canada stating that the employer is financially and legally able to hire a foreign worker to fill the job. The following documents must also be submitted by the applicant together with his or her work permit application for working in Canada:

  1. A legitimate job offer from a Canadian employer.
  2. A filled up application from the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations stating that you meet all their requirements to commence working in Canada.

In some cases, before working in Canada, the Canadian government will only require a Canadian work permit and not a labour market opinion from HRSDC. People under the following work categories only need a Canadian work permit and not a labour market opinion before they can start working in Canada.

  1. People participating in exchange programs.
  2. Entrepreneurs and company transferees who can provide Canadian residents with an advantage by working in Canada.
  3. Professionals, traders, investors and business people working in Canada under certain international agreements.
  4. Foreign students studying in Canada who need to do some co-op work as part of their study program.
  5. Spouses and common-law partners of foreign workers and foreign students who are studying or working in Canada under the Post-Graduate Work Permit Program.
  6. Spouses of foreign students who are not enrolled in full-time studies.
