Check what is like to live and work in Canada
Work permit document allows people to live and work temporarily in Canada. Canada is actively seeking foreign workers and qualified professionals to help grow its strong economy but also has in place very strict regulations to ensure protection of Canadian labour market.
There are two kinds of foreign workers in Canada; those who require a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) and LMIA exempt workers.
In general, the LMIA application is used to assess potential impact of hiring foreign workers on Canadian labour market. Positive or neutral LMIA is an authorization that the government gives to Canadian company to employ a foreign worker.
If you are an employer looking to hire foreign worker and do not know where to start contact us.
There are specific programs for foreign workers that do not require an LMIA. That includes: International Mobility Program: International Free Trade Agreements Professionals, Intra – company transferees and International Experience Canada. If you want to come to Canada to work temporarily please contact us for more information.

What is the difference between a closed work permit and an open work permit in Canada?
A closed work permit in Canada always specifies an employer that foreign national is authorized to work for. Immigrants with a closed work permit must have an LMIA or proof of employment to apply. Once they’ve received the work permit, they can only work for the business specified on their permit. On the other hand, in Canada, open work permits are not job-specific and permit their holders to choose the employer they want without needing an LMIA or a proof of employment.
