With few exceptions, most individuals looking to enter into the Canada’s labour market will require a work permit.
Typically, acquiring a Canadian work permit is a two-step process. In most cases, applicants will first require a job offer before they can apply for a Canadian work permit. The first step towards acquiring a Canadian work permit is to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada. After a positive LMIA has been issued, the applicant can apply for a Canadian work permit on that basis.
Work permits allow people to live and work in Canada temporarily. There is a maximum number of years that people can work temporarily in Canada, so if you plan to stay longer you should consider applying for Permanent Residence before it expires.
