Work In Canada Without A Work Permit

To work in Canada, you must first obtain a work permit or apply for a work visa, which is usually issued by the Canadian government.

In order to obtain a work permit or work visa for Canada, you must have secured a job offer in Canada before applying for the work visa, i.e. if you live outside Canada. The employer applies to the Canadian government for a work permit for the employee.

This process can take a long time for the application to be approved, and sometimes it is denied altogether.

If the work permit is granted, the individual or employee can begin employment in Canada within a specified period of time.

Depending on the work permit issued, either the open work permit or the employer-specific work permit, you can either work for different employers at the same time or for a specific employer listed on the temporary work permit.
