Work In Canada

As a general rule, temporary residents who work in Canada require a work permit (although there are exceptions). A Work Permit is a written authorization issued by an officer that allows a foreign national to engage in employment in Canada. Work Permits are linked to a specific job, employer and location. A foreign national may obtain a work permit under the following:

•Temporary Foreign Worker Program-TFWP
•International Mobility Program-IMP
•Post-Graduation Work Permit Program-PGWPP
•Trade Agreements

As a Temporary Foreign Worker you may engage in paid work activity; are authorized to enter and remain in Canada for a limited period; fill temporary labor and skill shortages when qualified Canadians are not available or come to Canada to work for business reasons under international trade agreements.
