Canadian Immigration :: Canada Work Permit

Working in Canada

Quotas, eligible occupation lists and reductions in the number of applications being received by Immigration Canada all mean one thing; it’s getting harder to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence.

I am by no means saying that people shouldn’t apply for Canadian PR and those who are strongly motivated and meet the requirements will have a better chance, but what about the people who don’t meet the requirements? Or what happens when the immigration quotas are reached? One option to consider is a Canadian Work Permit.

There are many different types of work permits available but they all start with a Canadian job offer. Regular readers will know that we DO NOT arrange job offers but we do offer assistance obtaining the work permit, once your Canadian employer makes you a formal offer of employment. To further assist you I am pleased to announce the new Canadim Work in Canada section of our website.

It features information on the different types of Canadian Work Permits available and a job search toolbar to help you connect with Canadian employers looking to hire.

The Advantages of a Canadian Work Permit:

The main advantage of a Canadian Work Permit is that it gets you here fast and in some cases, your can bring your spouse (and dependent children) and they may be eligible for an open work permit so they can seek employment in any occupation they wish.

The Downside of a Canadian Work Permit:

The downside to a Canadian Work Permit is that it is typically offered for a specific position and if you wish to change your title or employer, a new work permit will need to be applied for and it will need to be approved. One other important thing to note about a Canadian Work Permit is that by definition, it is temporary, and will have an end date attached to it.

Although renewing your work permit may be possible, a work permit on its’ own will not give you permanent status in Canada. That being said, a Canadian Work Permit can open a lot of doors to Canadian Permanent Residence that are not available to people without Canadian experience.

General Overview of the Types of Work Permits Available:

It is important to note that the majority of Canadian Work Permits require what is called a Labour Market Opinion (LMO). A LMO is a petition from the Canadian employer (or prepared on their behalf by a legal representative) to Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC)/Service Canada to bring a foreign worker to Canada. Ultimately it is up to HRSDC/Service Canada to determine if bringing in a foreign worker would have a positive or negative impact on the Canadian Labour Market.

It evaluates a number of factors but the main factor they consider is whether there is a suitable Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident to fill the position.

To find out which types of Canadian Work Permits do not require an LMO or about North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Work Permits and the Live-in Caregiver Program please visit the following link:

I hope to see you all in Canada very soon.

Sincerely,

Renaud Dery
