Application for Work Permits Including Open Work Permits
Each year, more than 300,000 foreign workers come to work in Canada on Temporary Work Permits.
In order to work in Canada on a temporary basis, most foreign workers require a work permit. For foreign workers, an offer of employment from a Canadian employer is usually required before the worker may be granted a Temporary Work Permit by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). There are several steps to this process. Depending upon the foreign worker’s country of citizenship, a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) may also need to be obtained in order to enter Canada.
Step 1: Employer applies for Labour Market Impact Assessment, if necessary.
Step 2: Employer extends Temporary Job Offer.
Step 3: Foreign Worker applies for Work Permit.
Step 4: Work Permit is issued.
