Work Permit

Every year over 150,000 people from around the globe come to Canada to work for Canadian employers. Some of them come here for seasonal work like working in farms and ski resorts and others come here for a longer period of time like cooks, chefs, tradesmen, computer and network experts. This list is endless.

However, regardless of the reason, the common query remains the same- how to apply for a work permit in Canada?

Canadian employers who wish to hire foreign workers approach ESDC (Employment and Social Development Canada) for approval of a Labour Market Impact Assessment Opinion (LMIA). There are some occupations that are exempt from LMIA so the employer doesn’t have to apply for this document. For other categories that require an LMIA once the employer gets approval, the selected worker can apply for a work visa at either the port of entry or Canadian high commission in the country of his or her residence.

  • Processing Labour Market Impact Assessment
  • Work permit processing (both inside and outside Canada)
  • Extension of work permits
