What you should know if you want to work in Canada

  • Your employer may need to get a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to hire you. This is a document from the Government of Canada that gives your employer permission to hire a foreign worker.
  • A work permit does not let you live in Canada permanently. To do so, you must qualify under an immigration category as a permanent resident. Your spouse or common-law partner and your dependent children may apply to come to Canada with you.

You must meet the requirements to:

  • enter the country,
  • stay in Canada and
  • get a work permit.
  • This means you may also need a visitor visa.
  • You also need to be Admissible to Canada

If your spouse wants to work in Canada

If you have a spouse or common-law partner who wants to work while in Canada, they must apply for their own work permit. Normally, they must meet the same rules as you do. This includes their employer getting an LMIA, if needed.

There are many factors involved in this process and you should have a good knowledge before applying. Provide us with your information and we help you through this process.
