Visitor and open work permit Канада
Secrets to Getting an Open Work Permit 2020
Update: Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) said the Open Work Permit Pilot program, which was set to expire on January 31, 2020, will be extended until July 31, 2020.
What is a Canada Open Work Permit?
An open work permit allows an individual to come work in Canada without first having a specific job offer. Because it is a not job specific, you are not required to fulfill some of the same requirements as individuals with other work permits. This includes not needing the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or proof of an offer of employment from an employer who paid a compliance fee. The option of an open work permit is not open to everyone, however.
Who Can Get an Open Work Permit?
There are a number of situations you may be in to qualify for an open work permit . This includes:
- Permanent residence applicants who have applied to an office in Canada
- Dependent family members of said permanent residence applicants
- Spouses/common-law partners of certain workers or international students
- Refugees, refugee claimants whose cases have not yet been heard or decided upon, protected persons, and their relatives
- Some temporary residents
- Some young workers who are participants in special programs, such as working holiday
The above are a basic overview of the type of person who may be eligible, however there are other qualifications an individual must have to obtain an open work permit.
Types of Open Work Permits
There are two types of open work permits:
- Unrestricted , which allows foreign nationals to work in any occupation in any location, and
- Restricted , which restricts the occupation or the location
In the case of a restricted open work permit, the individual may have occupational restrictions based on medical status, or locational restrictions based on the category of applicant they are. For example, an individual with a bridging open work permit who is a provincial nominee class applicant may be restricted to the provincial location.
Secrets to Getting an Open Work Permit: Are You a Good Candidate?
According to your specific situation, as mentioned above, there are various ways you can obtain and qualify for an open work permit.
- If you are a permanent resident applicant who has held a work position in Canada that will end before your application is approved, you may get a Bridging Open Work Permit. This will allow you to “bridge” the time in between the previous permit expiring and obtaining permanent resident status without having to leave the country. You must ensure you qualify to do so.
- Young workers who qualify for programs like working holiday may use the open work permit to gain experience working and living in Canada. You must first ensure, however, that your country of origin is included as an eligible participant in the program, and that you personally meet all criteria.
In whatever way you personally qualify for an open work permit, it is important to make sure you meet all the basic requirements for living in Canada. All documentation must be accurate and in order, and inadmissibility for any number of factors can still come into play.
If you have any basic questions about the open work permit, feel free to ask them in our comment section.

Visas & Work Permits in Canada
All Guide Sections
The Gu >
Before you pack your bags and book your ticket to Canada, there is some paperwork you need to take care of regarding your visa. Depending on your reason for moving to Canada, you may need to apply for one of Canada’s visa types. This could be a work permit visa for skilled workers or even self-employment visa. This section will also cover residence permits (both temporary and permanent).
Need to move abroad? Organizing an international relocation is not something you should do on your own. As expats ourselves, we understand what you need, and offer the essential services to help you move and live abroad easily. Contact us to jump start your move abroad!
More than likely, if you intend for your expat adventure in Canada to be for a considerable amount of time, you will probably need to apply for a Canadian visa. Although dealing with all of the paperwork regarding the Canadian visa application and the process can be quite nerve-wracking and overwhelming, this section ensures that you and your family have all the information you need on Canadian visa requirements, Canadian visa costs, the medical exam for Canadian immigration, and Canada’s immigration point system.
The section also covers residence permits (permanent) and temporary resident visa (TRV), along with how to apply for them.
Work Permits and Employment Based Visas
For most work in Canada, foreigners will need a work permit and employment visa. There are only a few jobs for which you do not need a work permit.
There are two types of work permits: open work permits and employer-specific work permits. Open work permits allow you to work for any employer in Canada while employer-specific permits enable you to work for only one specific employer.
All of Canada’s work permit/visa application forms can be found and filled out online. The Canadian work visa cost is 155 CDN (117 USD) for a work permit.
Canadian Work Visa Requirements
Work permits are issued for a variety of workers including temporary workers, business people, and permanent workers. There are a few different ways to apply for a work permit, and the eligibility requirements vary for each: outside of Canada, within Canada, or at the point of entry.
Visa Requirements for Temporary Workers
In general though, for temporary workers, here are the eligibility requirements for all temporary workers when applying for a Canadian work permit:
- Proof that you plan to leave Canada upon expiration of your work permit.
- Proof of sufficient funds to return home and take care of yourself and any family members coming with you.
- Police clearance certificate.
- Not be a danger to Canada’s security.
- Be in good health (a medical exam may be required).
- Plan to work for an eligible employer (i.e., no strip clubs, escort services, or erotic massage places).
- Appropriate documents to enter Canada.
Visa Requirements for Business People
When it comes to business visas, Canada makes a distinction between business people and business visitors. Business people can work in Canada under the free trade agreement, meaning they fall under one of the following three agreements: USMCA (formerly NAFTA), Other Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), or General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS).
USMCA applies to US and Mexican citizens. There are four categories:
- Business visitors: Workers who come take part in international business without being a part of the Canadian labor market. Business visitors usually stay for a few days or weeks, but they are able to stay up to six months without a work permit.
- Professionals: Must have a job offer in Canada to partake in one of the specific jobs set out by USMCA (e.g., engineer, accountant, computer systems analyst). These workers need a work permit.
- Intra-company transferees: Managers and executives sent to work for the same company in Canada. These types of workers must have been working on an on-going basis for at least one year in the last three years for the same employer and have a work permit.
- Traders and investors: Must be a supervisor or executive involved in planning a large amount of trade in goods or services between Canada and their home country; or have a substantial investment in Canada by them or their company. These workers must have a work permit.
FTAs are agreements between Canada and other countries such as Chile, Panama, Peru, Colombia, and Korea. It is modeled after USMCA, covering the same types of workers: business visitors, professionals, intra-company transferees, and traders and investors.
For more than 140 World Trade Organizations, Canada came up with GATSto make it easier for foreign workers to access the Canadian services market. The groups covered are business visitors, professionals, and intra-company transferees.
Visa Requirements for Permanent Workers
Permanent workers have to be skilled workers and will go through the online Express Entry system. There are three types of skilled worker immigration programs with specific requirements for each:
Keep in mind that if you plan on living in Québec, they have their own Québec-selected skilled workers process.
Potential documents you will need for the Express Entry application include:
- Passport or travel document
- Language test results
- Education credential assessment report
- Provincial nomination (if you have one)
- Written job offer from a Canadian employer (if you have one)
- Police certificate
- Medical exam
- Proof of funds
Understanding Canada’s Point System
Canada’s point system is called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). To qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, you need a score of 67 points or higher (out of 100). It evaluates you based on:
- English or French skills (maximum 28 points)
- Education (maximum 25 points)
- Experience (maximum 15 points)
- Age (maximum 12 points)
- Arranged Employment in Canada (maximum 10 points)
- Adaptability (maximum 10 points)
Your language skills are tested based on listening, speaking, reading, and writing ability.
To earn points under the Education requirement, you must prove you have a Canadian diploma or certificate; or have any international education assessed by a Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC)-approved agency to show it is equal to a Canadian credential.
You earn points in Experience based on how many years you have spent doing full-time, paid work (at least 30 hours per week, or an equal amount of part-time experience).
|Two to three years||11|
|Four to five years||13|
|Six or more years||15|
You will also earn points based on your age.
|47 or older|
If you have a permanent, full-time job offer from a Canadian employer before arriving in Canada, you qualify to earn points in the Arranged Employment in Canada category.
If you have a spouse or common-law partner moving to Canada with you, they can earn points for Adaptability too. This category covers any past study or work in Canada.
For temporary workers, family can come with them so long as they meet the requirements for temporary residents to Canada, can prove to customs they will only stay for the interim period, have no criminal record, and able to get a temporary resident visa if they are from one of the countries that require a visa to enter Canada.
Dependent children, spouses, and common-law partners can come with permanent workers to Canada so long as they aren’t inadmissible to Canada, and the worker is able to meet the requirements for sponsoring their family.
Each member of the family needs to apply separately. Their form and documents required may include:
- Statutory Declaration of Common-Law Union form
- Birth certificates
- Marriage or divorce certificates
- National ID cards
- Military service documents
- Other civil documents
For any spouses or dependent children wishing to work in Canada, they will need to apply for their own work permit. They can apply from within Canada.
If you require a medical exam for your visa application and work permit, please refer to the relocating section of our guide for more information on what to expect during your medical exam along with other Canadian immigration health requirements.
For your appointment, make sure to bring with you:
- Proper ID (with photograph and signature)
- Eyeglasses or contact lenses (if applicable)
- Medical reports or tests for any previous or existing medical conditions
- Medical Report form (IMM 1017E) (may be sent to you as part of your visa and work permit application process)
- List of current medications
- Four recent photographs
Your medical exam is good for twelve months.

Residency Permits: Temporary and Permanent
If you are wondering how to apply for a temporary residence visa (TRV) or even how to become a Canadian permanent residence, this subsection gives an overview of how to do so.
How to Get a Temporary Resident Visa
The application for a temporary resident visa (also known as a visitor visa) is found online on the Government of Canada website. Applications are completed, submitted, and paid for online. This type of visa is issued for people coming to visit Canada, including people coming to do business, and must be obtained before arrival into Canada. Any family members coming along are also required to fill out and submit their own application for a TRV.
Requirements and Fees
Some of the conditions in order to be issued your TRV are:
- Proof that you will leave at the end of your stay
- Proof of sufficient finances
- Not intend to work or study unless authorized
- No criminal record
- Not be a risk to Canadian security
- Medical exam (if required)
- Biometrics (if required)
The fee to apply for the TRV is 100 CDN (74 USD) plus biometrics if needed which cost 85 CDN (63 USD).
How to Get Permanent Residency in Canada
The process can be quick for some and longer for others and can be applied for within or outside of Canada. Usually, permanent residents have resided as temporary residents first (sometimes as workers) before applying for permanent residency.
There are many benefits to permanent residency in Canada. As a Canadian permanent resident, you:
- will have access to the country’s health care system and coverage;
- can legally live, work, and study anywhere in Canada;
- can later apply for citizenship after a certain period of time;
- will be protected under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The only thing a permanent resident cannot do is vote. For this right, they have to become a citizen.
To find out if you are eligible to apply for Canadian permanent residency, the Government of Canada website has a handy tool called Come to Canada which prompts you to answer a series of questions based on your individual circumstance and situation. Based on the answers you give, it will even suggest a list of programs that you may be eligible for.
Canadian permanent resident applications can be found online.
How to Obtain Permanent Residency in Canada
There are more than 60 Canadian immigration programs that can lead to permanent residency. They can be divided into three main classes:
- Economic – operates using the Express Entry
- Family – sponsorship through a family member who is already a Canadian permanent resident or citizen.
- Business – investment-based immigration programs offering permanent residency. Also, for the self-employed, experienced entrepreneurs, and start-up businesses.
You must decide which category best fits you before applying.
Economic-Based Permanent Residency
If you fall under this category, you are a skilled worker who will submit their self-assessed profile online (valid for one year). You will then be entered into a pool where you will get a score using a Comprehensive Ranking System (Canada’s point system) based on different categories of assessment (see above). Those with the highest scores will be invited to apply for permanent residency.
If you receive an official invite, you will have a limited amount of time to complete your application (which includes health and security checks).
Family Visa and the Canadian Spouse Visa Process
For any permanent resident or citizen of Canada wishing to bring their non-Canadian partner to Canada, bear in mind that spouses or common-law partners fall under the family visa sponsorship category. It is essential to keep in mind that there is no Canadian fiancé visa process or sponsorship – instead aim to qualify as a marital or common-law partner.
Canadian permanent residents or citizens can sponsor the following family members:
- Common law partner
- Dependent child
- Orphaned brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, granddaughters, or grandsons who are under the age of 18 and not married or in a common-law relationship
- Accompanying relatives of the above (e.g., spouse, partner, or dependent children)
Some of the requirements to be a sponsor are:
- Minimum 18 years of age
- Must not receive social assistance other than disability-specific
- Can cover basic needs for person sponsored
- Biometrics may be required
Some of the documents required from the sponsor are:
- Photocopy of permanent residence card or Canadian citizenship card or certificate (both sides)
- Letter from an employer in Canada (including salary details, regular working hours, etc.)
- ID, travel documents, and passport
- Civil status documents
Some of the requirements of the person being sponsored are:
- Certified translations of all documents in English or French
- Proof of relationship to the sponsor
- Police certificate
- Medical exam
- Biometrics may be required
Keep in mind that if you are sponsor living in Québec, requirements may differ slightly. It is best to contact the Québec ministry of immigration for information.
The final class operates under federal or provincial immigration programs. Most provincial immigration programs require a two-step process, starting with a work permit first (see above) and you will usually need a medical exam, police certificates, and certified translation of all documents when applying.
The Provincial Nominee Entrepreneur Programs is also under this category. In this category, applicants are nominated by a province if they meet the program requirements (varies based on province). Typically though, they all require a minimum net worth of 350,000 CDN (263,305 USD) with enough managerial experience. Some of the programs also require a minimum deposit, which is then returned to the applicant once the business has been established. Health and criminal checks are a standard part of this process too. Participating provinces include:
- British Columbia
- New Brunswick
- Nova Scotia
- Prince Edward Island
- North West Territories
Keep in mind that if planning on residing in Québec, they have their own Immigrant Investor Program, Entrepreneur Program, and Self-Employed Program which fall under Business class.
Canadian Permanent Residence Visa Requirements
Once you have obtained your permanent residence visa, there are specific requirements you must maintain to keep your status in Canada. The residency requirement states that for every five years you must live two of those years in Canada. Otherwise, you risk losing your permanent residency status in Canada. If you do lose your permanent residency status, you can appeal within 60 days.
Canadian Permanent Resident Fees
- Business immigration for Québec business immigration, self-employed workers, and start-up visas: 1,540 CDN (1,159 USD)
- Economic immigration (Express Entry): 1,040 CDN (782 USD)
- Spouse, parent, or grandparent sponsorship: 1,040 CDN (782 USD)
- Dependent child sponsorship: 50 CDN (38 USD)

OPEN WORK PERMIT
Work in Canada without a Work Permit
A number of situations may occur when an individual can perform work in Canada without needing to secure a Temporary Work Permit.
An individual who is eligible to work without a work permit may still require a Temporary Resident Visa to enter Canada on a temporary basis.
The following scenarios have been identified as instances where foreign nationals may perform work in Canada without a work permit:
- Business Visitors
- Foreign Representatives and their Family Members
- Military Personnel
- Foreign Government Officers
- American Cross-Border Maritime Law Enforcement Officers
- In-Flight Security Officers
- On-Campus Employment
- Performing Artists
- Athletes and Team Members
- News Reporters, Media Crews
- Public Speakers
- Convention Organizers
- Judges, Referees, and Similar Officials
- Examiners and Evaluators
- Expert Witnesses and Investigators
- Health Care Students
- Civil Aviation Inspectors
- Aviation or Accident Investigators
- Emergency Service Providers
- Implied Status
This broad category facilitates entry for individuals who engage in business or trade activities in Canada but will not enter the Canadian labour market. There are a number of subdivisions under this category, but all business visitors must meet the following general criteria:
There must be no intent to enter the Canadian labour market (there will be no gainful employment in the country);
The worker’s activity in Canada must be international in scope (it is assumed that a business visitor will engage in cross-border activity of some sort);
For business visitors in Canada working for a foreign employer, the following criteria are assumed:
The primary source of the worker’s compensation is outside of Canada
The principal place of employment is located outside of Canada
The employer’s profits are accrued outside of Canada
When traveling to Canada, business visitors should be prepared to present immigration officials with documentation that attests to their desired status in Canada. This documentation will vary on a case-by-case basis. Often, items such as a letter of support from a parent company or letter of invitation from a Canadian company can help to bolster one’s likelihood of acceptance as a business visitor.
Business visitors may fall into the following sub-categories:
After Sales Service
After-sales service providers may come to Canada to repair, service, supervise installers, and set up and test commercial or industrial equipment. Such services must be detailed in the contract of sale for the equipment in Canada. Individuals coming to Canada to train prospective users or maintenance staff in the operation of specialized equipment may also fall under this category.
Board of Directors Meetings
Members of a board of directors who must enter Canada to attend a meeting are eligible to do so as business visitors. Though these individuals may be remunerated for their time in Canada, this does not constitute entry into the Canadian labour market.
Employees of Short-Term Temporary Residents
Individuals who are employed in a personal capacity, on a full-time basis, by temporary residents in Canada may be considered business visitors. An example of professions that may be eligible under this category include domestic servants, personal assistants or live-in caregivers. If the short-term temporary resident, and subsequently their employee(s), extends their stay past 6 months, a Labour Market Impact Assessment and Work Permit may need to be secured for the employee(s).
Employees of Foreign Companies Contracting Canadian Companies
Situations arise in which foreign companies contract Canadian companies to provide services in Canada. In such a situation, the foreign company may wish to send one or more employees to Canada to ensure that the work is being carried out in a way that pleases the foreign company.
If an employee of a foreign company is sent to Canada for this purpose, they may be considered a business visitor provided they fulfill the following criteria:
They remain an employee of the foreign company;
They remain on the payroll of the foreign company;
The foreign company remains the beneficiary of the employee’s efforts; and
The foreign company’s principal place of business remains outside of Canada.
A business visitor in this category may remain in Canada for up to two years.
Foreign Representatives and their Family Members
Foreign representatives, as well as their personal staff and family members, may work in Canada without a work permit. Foreign representatives should be accredited by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT). Diplomatic representatives to United Nations offices in Canada are also covered by this exception.
Family members of foreign representatives must receive a ‘no objection letter’ by the Protocol Department of DFAIT in order to work without a work permit.
Military and civilian personnel in Canada under the auspices of the Visiting Forces Act may work and study without permits. The families of these individuals are also covered by these exemptions.
In addition, military personnel are exempt from requirements for a passport, from a temporary resident visa, and from foreign national medical examinations. Civilians and family members are still required to obtain these documents, if necessary.
Foreign Government Officers
Canada is party to agreements with other countries that call for international exchange of government employees. Through such agreements, foreign workers may be brought to Canada to work for a department or agency in either the federal or provincial government(s). These individuals do not work for a foreign mission or organization, and are not accredited by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT).
Officers working in this capacity at an executive level require a contract from Canada’s Public Service Commission (PSC). Officers working below an executive capacity do not require a contract, though assignments lasting longer than three months should include a formal letter of agreement between the officer and their Canadian employer.
Family members of officers covered under this exemption will generally be issued an open work permit or be exempted from the requirement for a permit while in Canada.
American Cross-Border Maritime Law Enforcement Officers
Some cross-border law enforcement vessels are staffed by joint Canadian and American crews. These individuals work on both sides of the US/Canada border. When in Canadian territory, American crew members may fulfill their job duties without the need to secure further work authorization.
In-Flight Security Officers (IFSOs)
Foreign IFSOs are designated by foreign governments to enforce safety on foreign aircrafts. Because they are designated by a foreign government, they may work in Canada without a work permit provided that their duties do not extend beyond providing security onboard a foreign aircraft.
IFSOs from countries that require a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to enter Canada must secure this visa in order to perform their duties in Canadian airspace.
A student is eligible to work on-campus at their institution of study if they meet one of the following criteria:
They hold a valid study permit; and
They are a full-time student at one of the following types of schools:
A public post-secondary institution (i.e. college or university) or a collège d’enseignement général et professionnel (CEGEP)
A college-level private institution in Quebec
A Canadian private institution authorized to confer degress
On-campus work authorization is valid for the duration of the study permit, provided the student remains in full-time studies. Employment may cover a range of standard jobs on campus. For institutions with multiple campuses, students may consider their work ‘on-campus’ if it takes place at a campus within the same municipality. An individual attending an institution with campuses in different cities is restricted to working on-campus in their city of residence.
Individuals working as research or teaching assistants off-campus as part of a research grant may be considered on-campus workers. The student must also fulfill the following additional criteria:
Be recommended by their academic department;
The work to be performed must be directed by a department head or faculty member; and
The work must take place in a research institute or program in an affiliated hospital or other research location.
Many foreign performing artists may work in Canada without a work permit. However, some types of performers/performances require a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) and Work Permit.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC, formerly CIC) has outlined some common performers/performances and their immigration requirements:
Entry Without a Work Permit Work Permit and LMIA Required
Bands performing at bars, pubs, restaurants, etc Actors, singers, crew, etc in Canadian theatrical productions, shows, circuses
Foreign-based musical and theatrical individuals and groups and their essential crew, working outside bars and restaurants Individuals involved in making films, TV, internet or radio broadcasts
Street performers (buskers), DJs working outside a bar, restaurant or similar establishment Individuals who will be in an employment relationship with the organization or business contracting for their services in Canada
A foreign or traveling circus Performers in a Canadian-based production or show
Guest artists (not employed) within a Canadian performance group for a time-limited engagement Rodeo performers or side show workers (e.g., rodeo clowns and announcers, horsemanship or trick riding displays, ‘half-time acts’ and other specialty act entertainers)
Persons performing at a private event, such as a wedding
Artists attending or working at a showcase/workshop; which may include competing, judging competitors, demonstrating their skill, holding a class related to the showcase/workshop
Wrestlers from the World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (WWE) (and similar groups)
Air show performers
In addition to the above-mentioned scenarios, certain performers may work in Canada without a work permit under different sub-categories. They are:
Film producers (business visitors)
Film and recording studio users (business visitors)
Persons doing guest spots on Canadian TV and radio broadcasts (Guest speakers)
Guest artists who have been invited to perform with a Canadian group are covered under this exception as long as their invitation is for a ‘time-limited engagement’. For the purposes of immigration, this time limit is usually no more than two weeks, though flexibility is permitted. A guest artist who is invited to rehearse and perform for a longer duration of time, such as a performance season, will require a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) and work permit.
In order to work without a work permit, a performing artist should not enter into an employment situation in Canada. That is, they should not be the long-term employee of a Canadian organization, individual, or establishment.
Athletes and Team Members
Professional or amateur athletes may travel to Canada to participate in sports activities or events in Canada either individually or as part of a team. Likewise, foreign coaches and trainers of foreign athletes, as well as other essential team members, may travel to Canada to participate in events.
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) gives the following examples of individuals who may be eligible under this exemption:
Amateur players on Canadian teams
Foreign pet owners entering their own animals in a show
Jockeys racing horses from foreign-based stables
Race car drivers
Individuals attending professional team tryouts
Foreign team members participating in a competition in Canada
Grooms or team support members
Full or part-time coaches and trainers
The spouses of professional athletes are eligible for a Labour Market Impact Assessment-exempt work permit for their time in Canada.
News Reporters, Media Crews
News reporters and their crews who come to Canada in order to report on events in the country may do so without a work permit. These can include journalists, provided the company they work for is not Canadian. However, this does not include managerial or clerical personnel unless these individuals are covering special events that will last for six months or less.
Generally speaking, media crews who come to Canada to produce travelogues, documentaries, etc are required to secure work permits. However, such decisions are left to the discretion of the Canadian Visa Officer reviewing their application.
Guest speakers at events, commercial speakers and seminar leaders can present in Canada without needing a work permit. For the purposes of this exemption, ‘seminar’ is defined as a small class or intensive course of study no longer than five days.
Commercial speakers in this category will have a vested interest in the event in which they are speaking. Usually, this means that they will rent a commercial space, advertise for the event, charge admission, etc. Commercial speakers who are hired by a Canadian entity must secure a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) and work permit for their time in Canada.
This category covers individuals who come to Canada to organize a convention or conference, as well as the administrative support staff of the organizing committee. These events may be corporate meetings, trade shows, exhibitions, etc. Hands-on service providers, such as audio-visual specialists, are not included in this category.
Convention organizers who have been hired to perform work for a Canadian event are not eligible to work without a work permit. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) defines a ‘Canadian event’ as one that is held by an organization located and actively doing business in Canada.
Individuals attending conferences and meetings are considered business visitors and are exempt from the requirement for a work permit.
An individual who preaches, oversees religious services, or provides spiritual counselling as a profession may work in Canada without a work permit. Individuals may be ordained ministers, laypeople, or members of a religious order. It is not mandatory that the temporary worker be part of or share the beliefs of the particular religious community where they will work. The primary duties of the temporary worker should reflect a particular religious objective, such as providing religious instruction or promoting a particular faith.
Individuals seeking entry to Canada under this exemption should provide documentation attesting to the following:
The genuineness of the offer of employment; and
Their ability to minister to a congregation (credentials, past employment, etc)
Persons who will be conducting charitable or religious work in Canada require a work permit; however, that permit is exempt from the Labour Market impact Assessment (LMIA) process.
Judges, Referees, and Similar Officials
Judges, referees, etc may come to Canada to participate in international amateur sports, artistic, agricultural or cultural events and competitions.
Amateur sports competitions should be organized by an international amateur sport organization and should be hosted by a Canadian organization. In this case, amateur is defined as a competition in which athletes are not paid to compete. Judges, referees and similar officials who will participate in professional sports competitions must receive a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) and work permit.
Examiners and Evaluators
Foreign professors and researchers may need to enter Canada in order to evaluate theses and projects conducted by their students. In this case, they may do so without obtaining a work permit.
Expert Witnesses or Investigators
Experts who must enter Canada in order to conduct surveys or analyses that will be used as evidence, or who will testify as expert witnesses before a regulatory body or court of law, may do so without requiring a work permit.
Health Care Students
Foreign health care students studying at foreign institutions may participate in clinical clerkships or short-term practicums in Canada without obtaining work permits. Students may be studying in fields such as medicine, nursing, medical technology and occupational and physical therapy. Such practicums should be unpaid and last no more than four months.
Foreign health care students who will be remunerated for their work, or who will spend more than four months in Canada, will require a work permit.
Civil Aviation Inspectors
Flight operations and cabin safety inspectors may inspect commercial international flights without needing a work permit. Inspectors should be employed by a recognized aeronautical authority and hold valid documentation attesting to this fact.
Aviation Accident or Incident Inspector
Accredited representatives and advisors who are assisting in the investigation of an aviation accident or incident may do so without securing a work permit. The investigation should be conducted under the authority of the Canadian Transportation Accident Investigation and Safety Board Act.
Crew members do not need a work permit if they are working on a means of transportation that is foreign-owned, not registered in Canada, and engaged primarily in international transportation. They may work in an operation, maintenance, or passenger service capacity.
Laws governing work conducted by crews on different modes of transportation vary greatly. As such, it is important to make sure that one’s work will in fact be eligible for a work permit exemption before coming to Canada.
Emergency Service Providers
Workers who will enter Canada to provide services in times of emergency may do so without a work permit. The purpose of their work should be preserving life and property in the face of natural disasters or commercial accidents.
Canada has specifically entered into agreements with the United States to facilitate the movement of emergency aid workers across the border between the two countries. These workers may be doctors or medical teams as well as appraisers and foreign insurance adjusters.
Individuals may continue working under the conditions of an expired work permit (without an interim work permit), provided that they applied for a new work permit before the original expired. While waiting for a response on their application, they must remain in Canada to ensure implied status. Once a decision has been made, the applicant may either continue working under the conditions of their new permit, or they must leave Canada.
Open Work Permit
Canada Open Work Permit (OWP)
An Open Work Permit under the International Mobility Program of Canada is a type of work permit that is not tied to a specific job. In addition, it doesn’t require a specific job offer. All other work permits, in general, allow the holder to work for one employer. However, with the unrestricted OWP, you can change occupations and employers as long as the permit is valid. In addition, this permit does not require you to submit a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) document that your employer would need to provide.
To get an Open Work Permit you have to meet certain requirements. As mentioned before, it may be completely unrestricted or have some restrictions. In general, there are three types of OWPs:
- Unrestricted work permits, which enable you to change employers, occupation, and the location of work;
- Restricted work permits, which don’t allow you to change the occupation and employer;
- Partially restricted work permits, which restrict the occupation or location of work.
The decision on the type of the work permit to issue you is at the discretion of the officer at the Canadian Consulate depending on the documents that you submit.
The IRCC can consider you eligible if you are in one of the following groups:
- A temporary resident permit holder;
- An international student who has graduated from a Canadian educational institution and can apply for a Post-Graduation Work Permit;
- A student who is unable to cover the cost of their studies;
- A person who has applied for permanent residence in Canada;
- A family member of a person who has applied for permanent residence in Canada;
- A spouse or common-law partner of an international student or skilled worker;
- A refugee, protected person, refugee claimant, or a family member;
- A young worker in special programs.
Сanada OWP Requirements
As a temporary worker, you must meet the eligibility requirements of the Temporary Visa in order to apply for the Open Work Permit. In addition, you must also complete the following requirements:
- Prove that you will leave Canada after your work permit expires;
- Demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and your family stay in Canada and that you have enough funds to go back to your home country;
- Have a clean criminal record;
- Prove that you do not impose a threat to the national security of Canada;
- Comply with the conditions of your open work permit even if the officer issues a restricted one;
- Prove that you are not intending to work for an employer that offers striptease, erotic dance, erotic massage, or escort services;
- You must be in good health;
You can also apply for an extension of the Open Work Permit or for your first Open Work Permit from inside Canada if you meet these requirements:
- Your Canadian study permit or an OWP will expire soon;
- You have obtained a degree from a Canadian educational institution;
- You hold a temporary resident status;
- The IRCC is processing your application for refugee status;
- You already have refugee or protected person status;
- Your application to get refugee status was turned down, but you cannot leave Canada for reasons beyond your control
What You Must Know About the Open Work Permit
Depending on your circumstances, you can consider different options for an Open Work Permit.
The first option assumes that your permanent residence is almost to expire and you may qualify for the Bridging Open Work Permit. Another word, you don’t need to leave the country to extend your permit. Instead, you can get this type of permit while waiting for a renewed PR. The second option works for young professionals whose country has a bilateral agreement with the Canadian government. In this case, they can try an OWP as well as a Working Holiday Visa.
Canada temporary work permits
Canada is a prime destination for many foreign nationals who are seeking employment opportunities. The country boasts a strong and diverse economy with a high-standard of workplace safety, competitive wages, and many opportunities for professional growth and development. In addition to this, working in Canada is an excellent first step for those seeking to immigrate to the country permanently .
In order to work in Canada, it is necessary to ensure that a person has the proper authorization, as engaging in work without the proper authorization can have serious consequences on future immigration applications. Read below to learn more about the various options for immigrating to Canada as a temporary or permanent worker!
How to find a job in Canada
It may feel daunting to begin the search for employment in Canada. Thankfully, there are many resources for those seeking an official job offer from a Canadian employer. When beginning the job hunt, we recommend making use of Canadim’s job hunt resources, listed below. Be sure to take the time to prepare your resume and tailor your social media presence before sending out any applications!
Certain positions in Canada may require a person to know their National Occupation Classification Code (NOC Code). This code is used to classify all types of employment by Canadian standards. Canadim has put together a tool to assist with finding your NOC Code as well.
Benefits of working in Canada
Working in Canada has many benefits. Canadian labour laws ensure that workplaces have a high-degree of safety and that all employers follow certain laws and regulations to ensure the well being of their employees. As well, Canadian wages are competitive and foreign nationals are required, by law, to be offered wages equivalent to their Canadian counterparts.
Finally, some Canadian work permits enable the spouse and children of workers to accompany them to Canada. Another significant benefit for those interested in immigrating to Canada permanently is that by gaining Canadian work experience, a foreign national may increase their eligibility for a number of Canadian permanent residency programs. The following programs award value, in varying degrees, for Canadian work experience:
Types of Canadian work permits
There are many different options for obtaining a Canadian work permit. Some work permits require a job offer from a Canadian employer, some require that the employer provide a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), while others require that a person has some sort of connection to Canada (previous education, spousal sponsorship, etc.). Please refer to the categories below to determine the work permit which best suits your qualifications: Requiring a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
LMIA-Exempt but requiring a job offer or employment contract
Open Work Permits (no job offer or LMIA required)
Immigration Tip: Canadian permanent residents do not require a work permit to work in Canada. Permanent resident status gives a person the legal right to live and work anywhere in the country. Find out more about permanent immigration options for professional and skilled workers .
How to obtain a Canadian work permit
The process for obtaining a Canadian work permit varies greatly depending on which type of work permit a person is applying. For example, an international student studying in Canada will oftentimes be automatically issued authorization to work part-time as part of their study permit authorization.
Most closed work permit applications require that a foreign national has an official job offer from a Canadian employer which is supported by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Even those who are LMIA-exempt or exempt from requiring a work permit should be aware of the unique documentation they need to prepare in order to ensure they are granted entry to Canada. There are two general pathways for obtaining a Canadian work permit: a closed work permit and an open work permit .
Closed work permits are tied to specific employers, this means that a foreign national issued a closed work permit must remain working with the same employer at the same location unless they change their work permit.
Work in Canada FAQ
If I have a Canadian job offer, am I eligible to apply for a work permit?
Not necessarily. A job offer, if required for certain work permit applications, must meet certain requirements in order to be considered valid. For most temporary work permits, in order to be eligible for a work permit, an applicant’s job offer must be either:
It should be noted that the province of Quebec has its own process for determining the validity of an offer of employment.
How do I apply for a work permit?
The application procedure is different depending on which type of work permit you need. The first step is determining which work permit is best for you. If you need help figuring out the application, simply contact us and a member of our team will assist you with scheduling a consultation.
How long will it take to process my work permit application?
The processing time for a work permit application depends on the type of work permit and the applicant’s country of residence at the time of application. Processing times range anywhere from a few weeks to several months.
How long will it take to process my LMIA application?
There are two types of Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) applications: a regular LMIA and a simplified LMIA. The simplified LMIA is only available in the province of Quebec. The regular LMIA is processed on a case-by-case basis with processing times varying greatly from applicant to applicant. Generally, it takes a minimum of five months to receive a response on a regular LMIA application.
If an employer is eligible for Canada’s Global Talent Stream , they may qualify for expedited LMIA processing. The simplified LMIA completed for Quebec employment is usually processed in approximately two to three months.
What is the rate of success for work permit/LMIA applications?
It is impossible to give a rate of success for work permit/LMIA applications, as all applications are processed on a case-by-case basis. If an applicant meets the requirements of the LMIA, their application should be approved. However, applications are assessed by individual officers, each exercising their own discretion in choosing whether or not to approve a work permit application.

Канада продлевает пилотную программу Open Work Permit
Продленная программа Open Work Permit предназначена для того, чтобы супруги или партнеры граждан или постоянных резидентов Канады могли работать, пока их заявления на иммиграцию находятся на рассмотрении. Мы привели простой пример, кто может получить Open Work Permit.
Федеральное правительство Канады продлило пилотную программу открытого разрешения на работу «Open Work Permit». Программа предназначена для супругов и партнеров граждан и постоянных резидентов Канады, которые находятся в Канаде, и подали заявку на постоянное проживание по программе Spouse or Common-Law Partner in Canada Class.
Срок действия пилотного проекта истекал 31 января 2020 года, но теперь он был продлен до 31 июля 2020 года.
Это четвертый раз, когда программа была продлена с момента ее введения в 2014 году.
Программа Open Work Permit Pilot предназначена для того, чтобы супруги и партнеры могли работать по открытому разрешению на работу (open work permit), пока их заявления на иммиграцию находятся на стадии рассмотрения.
Вы уже подписались на мой YouTube-канал про иммиграцию в Канаду?
Чтобы подать заявку на открытое разрешение на работу кандидаты должны находиться в Канаде и быть в процессе получения статуса постоянного резидента через спонсирование по программе Spouse or Common-Law Partner in Canada Class. Кандидаты также должны иметь легальный временный статус туриста, студента или работника и проживать по тому же адресу, что и их спонсор.
Открытое разрешение на работу — это то, которое не привязано к конкретной работе или работодателю. Однако трудоустройство в сфере ухода за детьми и здравоохранения ограничена.
В заявлении федерального правительства говорится: «Канада признает, что когда семьи могут работать вместе, их результаты интеграции улучшаются. Продление этого пилотного проекта гарантирует, что заявители смогут работать, обеспечивать свои семьи и вносить свой вклад в экономику Канады, ожидая обработки своих заявок на постоянное жительство».
Как получить Open Work Permit
Лица, которые хотят получить открытое разрешение на работу через Open Work Permit Pilot, могут подать заявку одновременно с заявкой на спонсорство, а также заявкой на постоянное проживание.
Заявители, которые уже подали заявку на постоянное проживание, но еще не получили разрешение на работу, могут подать заявку на открытое разрешение на работу отдельно.

Основатель и генеральный директор Канадского сервисного центра.
Канадский Сервисный Центр- единственная компания на территории РФ и СНГ, предоставляющая полный комплекс услуг для выезжающих в Канаду: оформление виз, иммиграции, подбор и зачисление у учебные заведения Канады, организация деловых поездок, групповых и индивидуальных туров, содействие в покупке недвижимости в Канаде и многое другое.
Компания была основана в конце 2008 года бывшим сотрудником посольства Канады в Москве и по сей день является, пожалуй, единственной экспертной организацией в области организации выезда в Канаду.

Добрый день! Я занимаюсь исследовательской деятельностью, так случилось, что у меня появилась возможность учиться по программе PhD в канадском университете. Однако путь от момента зачисления в университет до пересечения канадской границы оказался не самым простым. Имея достаточный опыт самостоятельного оформления туристических виз в шенгенскую зону, случай с Канадской визой оказался особенным. Изучив информацию, предоставляемую CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada), подал документы самостоятельно, действуя строго по алгоритму и благополучно получил отказ через 10 дней. Расклад, очевидно, не самый приятный. Однако, ситуацию исправили сотрудники Канадского Сервисного Центра. После подробного разговора конкретно по моей ситуации, был определен набор документов, которые решено было прикреплять к заявлению. Далее всем оборотом документов занимались сотрудники центра, при этом постоянно уведомляя меня о ходе дела и оперативно отвечая на мои вопросы. Эта попытка оказалась удачной во многом именно за счет опыта сотрудников центра. Сейчас я нахожусь на территории Канады и очень рад открытым возможностям. Мой опыт показал, что сотрудники Канадского Сервисного Центра свое дело знают и им можно доверять.
Делала визу после трех отказов, которые получила в другом агентстве и уже не думала что когда-либо попаду в Канаду. Здесь мне все рассказали, все ошибки, которые были допущены и дали мне совершенно другой список документов. Я не знаю как они это делают, но я получила визу после трех отказов на 8 лет. Спасибо большое Канадскому Сервисному Центру и руководителю, Инне, в частности.
Хочу выразить огромную благодарность за оформления рабочей визы в Канаду и за профессионализм оказаных услуг. В связи сложившихся обстоятельств мне необхомимо было сделать визу в короткий срок, обычно этот тип визы оформляют в течении трех месяцев, однако мне сделали ее довольно быстро, чуть больше месяца и то из-за новогодних праздников. Кроме того, в этом центре люди всегда приветлевы и помогают клиентам не только с оформлением виз. Желаю процветания и удачи!
Выражаем большую благодарность сотрудникам Канадского сервисного центра за высокую культуру обслуживания и оперативность в оформлении виз.
Добрый день! Я прошла собеседование на границе и сейчас в Канаде.Cпасибо вам за подготовку и помощь!
