Canada actually uses the term “work permit” instead of work visa. It’s a document that allows you to legally work in the country. Here’s a breakdown:

Anyone is allowed to apply for work permit in Canada, however, only qualified individuals will be accepted. To find if you are eligible for work permit you will be evaluated by your:

Eligibility: You typically need a job offer with a positive LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) from a Canadian employer. This LMIA shows the employer tried to hire a Canadian first.

Types: There are two main categories – employer-specific permits tied to a specific job and open work permits for specific situations like recent graduates.

Validity: Permits usually last 1-2 years, but can vary depending on the program and your application.

Work Visa Categories

Open work permits

Open work permits in Canada let you work for any employer, anywhere in the country. They’re ideal for those with job offers in various fields, or recent graduates seeking work experience. However, eligibility depends on your situation and may involve additional requirements.

Employer-specific work permit

Employer-specific work permits are tied to one employer and job offer in Canada. They’re ideal for those with a specific position lined up, but limit you to that company and role. Obtaining one usually involves a positive LMIA from your employer.
