Apply for Work Permit
A Work Permit is a document that allows certain non-Canadian citizens and permanent residents to work in Canada. A Work Permit will be issued, and the Work Permit holder will be subject to conditions and restrictions.
Everyone will have different conditions and restrictions imposed on them. A Work Permit specifies the type of work that a worker is permitted to do, such as:
the occupation, the employer, the work location, and the times and periods of work.
Furthermore, if a Work Permit is issued to a temporary resident, the duration of the worker’s temporary stay in Canada may be specified.
A Work Permit will also specify the type of work that the worker is not permitted to do.
Different types of Work Permit categories?
Work permits for temporary residents are classified into three types:
- Individuals whose work in Canada necessitates a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
- Individuals whose work in Canada is exempt from LMIA under the International Mobility Program (IMP)
- Persons whose work in Canada is exempt from LMIA in certain circumstances prescribed by regulation or public policy.
Before submitting your application, you should consult with a Canadian immigration lawyer.
Sohi Immigration Lawyers can conduct an assessment to determine whether you need an LMIA, are LMIA-exempt under the International Mobility Program (IMP), or are LMIA-exempt in certain other situations prescribed by regulation or public policy.
