Work in Canada

Work in Canada is a prime destination for many foreign nationals who are seeking employment opportunities.

Work & jobs in Canada is also an excellent first step for those seeking to immigrate to the country permanently. A work permit or authorization to work is required in order for a foreign national to be allowed to work in Canada.
To apply for a work permit, most candidates will require a Canadian job offer supported by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). There are some exceptions to this requirement, where foreign workers can apply for a work permit without an LMIA, or a job offer.

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) is designed for Canadian employers to hire foreign workers within a wide range of job positions. The most important part of the TFWP hiring process is applying for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The LMIA verifies that there is a need for a temporary worker and that no Canadians or permanent residents are available to do the job. Read More

The IMP lets employers hire temporary workers without an LMIA. Exemptions from the LMIA process are based on both of the following: 

  • the broader economic, cultural or other competitive advantages for Canada
  • the reciprocal benefits enjoyed by Canadians and permanent residents


Foreign workers that are exempt from the LMIA requirement may still need a work permit in order to work in Canada. Most foreign workers do need an LMIA supported job offer from employer in Canada in order to work. Read More
