Temporary workers seeking permits to legally work in Canada are invited to contact our office for assistance with your particular concerns. Generally, applicants must first have an offer of employment before they can apply for a work permit.
There are three categories of work applicable to foreign workers in Canada:
- Work which requires no work permit (e.g.: some business visitors, athletes, performing artists, public speakers, or news reporters)
- Work which requires a work permit, but no Labour Market Opinion (e.g.: intra-corporate transferees, NAFTA workers, and PNP certificate holders)
- Work which requires both a work permit and a Labour Market Opinion
