Hello Brave 9Ja Dude,

The process for the Canadian work permit is simple. All you need to do is search an employer who can issue you an employment letter and a LMIA.

A work permit for Canada is given to an individual who is not a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, yet wishes to work here. It is a mandatory work permit, irrespective of whether the employer lives in Canada or not. The validity is only for specific time duration and for a specified job only. This means that a single work permit is applicable only for the intended work. If you want to switch jobs, you need to apply for a new permit again.

Canada Work Permit Process:

This is a two-fold process. In the first level, a Canadian employer must receive an approval from the Canadian government to hire foreign workers. At the second stage, on being granted permission, the designated employees should apply for receiving a work permit.

Canada Work Permit Requirements:

At the time of applying for the Canada work permit, you need to meet certain requirements in order to get the work permit for Canada. These are:-

  • Your intention of leaving the country after the lapse of the work permit
  • Should be self-sufficient enough to support yourself and your family during your stay here
  • Should not be having a criminal background
  • Must meet the health requirements

Canada Work Permit Application

This work permit application requires verification from the Canadian labor market. This is known as the Labor Market Opinion (LMO). On getting a positive LMO, an individual can apply for a work permit. However, there are some categories which do not require this approval like NAFTA and Post-Graduate Work Permits as well as Intra-Company Transfers.

You can do more research about the terms..

Hope this helps.
