We provide top-notch Work Permit Extension Services, catering to individuals seeking to continue their work in Canada.

A Work Permit is needed for most temporary jobs in Canada, though for some positions it may not be necessary. Various programs are available that allow some workers to enter for short periods based on territorial agreements that help determine if you are eligible or not.

Most temporary foreign workers will require an employer based LMIA (labour market impact assessment) in order to apply for a work permit. Any job in Canada must be given to a Canadian who holds the qualifications, experience and credentials if they qualify for the position being advertised. Canada always supports its own citizens before looking at the foreign market. However in a lot of cases, employers cannot find the right workers they need to fill the role they have so they must go through an LMIA which is issued by Economic and Social Development Canada (ESDC). After following very strict protocol to determine that no Canadian is available, the labour market impact assessment (LMIA) confirms that the employer can fill the job with a foreign worker.

To work in Canada, you must meet the general requirements for entering the country and staying to work here, in addition to the requirements for applying and receiving a Work Permit. Many countries’ citizens require a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to enter Canada. For those that do not need a TRV they will require an ETA or an Electronic Travel Authorization to enter. The only exception is the USA where Canadians only require a passport to enter and vice versa.

A Work Permit, however is not an immigration document. It does not allow you to live in Canada permanently. To live here permanently, you must qualify under one of the numerous permanent immigration program categories, such as skilled worker, skilled trade, or one of the provincial nominee programs just to name a few. Caregivers who have come under an LMIA prior to November 2019 or who qualified under the pilot programs for Home Support Workers or Childcare workers can stay in Canada permanently if they meet certain requirements. If you want your spouse or common-law partner and your dependent children to come with you to Canada, they must apply to do so.

Applying for a Work Permit in Canada: Eligibility and Process

A Canadian work permit is a valuable document that allows foreign nationals to legally work in Canada for a specified duration. Whether you are seeking a new work opportunity or extending your existing work permit, understanding the application process and eligibility criteria is crucial. Our Licensed Immigration Consultants will guide you through the steps to apply for a work permit in Canada and discuss the essential requirements you need to fulfill.

Eligibility Criteria for Applying for Work Permits in Canada:

Before applying for a work permit in Canada, it's essential to meet certain eligibility criteria. Here are the key factors:

  • Job Offer: You must have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer. In some cases, the employer may need to obtain a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to prove that hiring a foreign worker will not adversely affect the Canadian job market.

  • Work Permit Duration: The duration of your work permit will usually depend on the length of your job offer. It is essential to ensure that your work permit aligns with the time frame of your job contract.

  • Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) or Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA): Depending on your nationality, you may also need a TRV or eTA to enter Canada. Check the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website to determine the requirements based on your country of origin.

  • Proof of Financial Stability:  You may be asked to provide evidence of sufficient funds to support yourself and your family members during your stay in Canada.

Work Permit Process in Canada:

Applying for a work permit in Canada involves several steps:

  • Step 1: Obtain a Job Offer

    Secure a job offer from a Canadian employer. If necessary, ensure that your employer has obtained a positive LMIA.

  • Step 2: Gather Required Documents

    Collect all necessary documents, including a valid passport, job offer letter, LMIA (if applicable), TRV or eTA (if required), and proof of financial capacity.

  • Step 3: Online Application Submission

    Apply for a work permit through the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website or by submitting a paper application to the nearest Visa Application Center (VAC) in your country.

  • Step 4: Biometrics and Medical Examination

    You may need to provide biometrics (fingerprints and photos) at a local VAC. Additionally, some applicants might be required to undergo a medical examination.

  • Step 5: Application Processing

    The processing time for work permit applications varies depending on factors such as your country of residence and application volume.

  • Step 6: Work Permit Issuance

    If your application is approved, you will receive a Port of Entry (POE) Letter of Introduction. Present this letter, along with your passport and other required documents, to the immigration officer when you arrive in Canada.

Canada Work Permit Extension:

If you wish to extend your work permit in Canada, you must apply for an extension before your current work permit expires. The extension application process is similar to the initial work permit application, and it is essential to submit your application well in advance to avoid any gaps in employment authorization.

Obtaining a Canadian work permit can open up exciting opportunities for foreign workers. By understanding the eligibility criteria and following the proper application process, you can increase your chances of securing a work permit and contributing to the Canadian workforce. Whether you're applying for a new work permit or extending an existing one, we ensure that you comply with all regulations and requirements set forth by the Canadian authorities.

  • Eligibility To Apply From Outside Canada
  • You Must Also Do The Following
  • Eligibility To Apply As You Enter Canada

To apply for a Work Permit from outside Canada, you must submit the following documents: a job offer letter or contract from a Canadian employer a completed application, that shows that you meet the requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act; the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations, and Employment, Social Development Canada (ESDC) and Service Canada that the employer can hire a foreign worker to fill the job. This confirmation is called a positive labour market impact assessment (LMIA)

There are several factors that will help satisfy a visa officer to provide a positive decision on your work permit. They will want to be assured that as a temporary worker on a temporary work permit you will:

  • Leave Canada at the end of your Work Permit.
  • You have enough money to support yourself and your family while you are in Canada.
  • Respect the law and have no criminal record - you may have to provide a police clearance certificate.
  • Show that you are not a risk to the security of Canada, and
  • Be in good health - you may have to have a medical examination.

Seems easy enough but that is why we are here to help you get it right and apply professionally.

You can apply also for a Work Permit as you enter Canada, but only if you meet the following requirements:

  • You don’t need a visa to enter Canada
  • You do not need a medical examination (or you already have a medical certificate).
  • Your job does not need a labour market impact assessment (LMIA) from Employment, Social Development Canada (ESDC) or
  • You have brought the positive labour market impact assessment and job offer with you.
