CANADA WORK PERMITS 2020 - Come to Canada as Temporary foreign worker



Are you looking for how to work in Canada for sometime? Perhaps you already have your Visa and travel requirements ready and you want to know what next to do about coming to temporarily get a job in Canada.

For you to come to Canada as a temporary foreign worker, you must get a work permit. There are different kinds of work permits.

If you are not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you need a work permit to work legally in Canada.


In general, you need to apply for a work permit from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or a Canadian visa office before you come to Canada. 
See the official Canada IRCC site for more info.

For these work permits:
You need to get a job offer from a Canadian employer before you apply.

The employer must apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).

ESDC will decide whether the employer can hire a foreign worker to fill the job.

There are special work permits for some kinds of workers. For example, there are special work permit programs for live-in caregivers, business people and agricultural workers.
