Work Permit

A work permit is a written authorization issued by an officer which allows a person who is
neither a citizen nor a resident to work in Canada. This permit is mandatory whether the
employer is in Canada or not. In general, a work permit is awarded on the basis of an employer, a
specific job, a specific duration and according to a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

Canadian laws protect all workers in Canada including foreign workers and employers who
recruit you here in Canada must:

  • Pay for your work;
  • Make sure your workplace is safe;
  • Can not withdraw your passport or work permit.
