Work Permit in Canada.
Open Work Permit Canada
An open work Permit differs from a regular work permit in that it does not specify a particular job or employer. Generally, the job and employer are both indicated on Canadian Work Permits, thereby restricting the holder to those circumstances while in Canada. An Open Work Permit allows its holder to work for any Canadian employer, in almost any capacity.
Open Work Permits do not require the applicant to have either an offer of employment or a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
As per Canadian immigration regulations, Open Work Permits may be applied for by:
- Spouses or common-law partners of temporary foreign workers in a level 0, A or B occupation, according to the National Occupation Classification (NOC);
- The spouses or common-law partners of foreign students engaged in full-time study;
- International students who have recently graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution
How to Apply for a Canadian Work Permit
Typically, obtaining 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.
- In the vast majority of cases, the first step towards obtaining a Canadian work permit is to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
- After a positive LMIA has been issued, the applicant can apply for a Canadian work permit on that basis.
Work Permit Duration
All Canadian work permits have an expiry date. The only way to work in Canada permanently, or for an unspecified length of time, is to acquire permanent resident status. The total number of months individuals may work in Canada—whether worked consecutively or with gaps between permits—is 48, or four years total.
Once the maximum of four years of work has been accumulated, foreign workers will have to leave Canada and remain outside of the country for at least 48 months (4 years) before being eligible to work in Canada again.
