Work Visa

A work permit is usually required to work in Canada. In some cases, you can work without a permit.

There are two types of work permits: 

  1. Open work permits

  2.  Employer-specific work permits

Eligibility requirements for all applicants

There are specific requirements you need to meet depending on where you are when you apply for your work permit.

But regardless of where you apply or which type of work permit you apply for, you must:

  • Prove to an officer that you will leave Canada when your work permit expires

  • Show that you have enough money to take care of yourself and your family members during your stay in Canada and to return home

  • Obey the law and have no record of criminal activity

  • Not be a danger to Canada’s security

  • Be in good health and have a medical exam, if required

  • Not plan to work for an employer who is restricted by CIC
