Every year, over 150,000 foreign workers enter Canada to work temporarily in jobs that help Canadian employers address skill shortages, or to work as live-in caregivers.

A work permit is needed for most temporary jobs in Canada. Some jobs do not require a work permit such as :
- Foreign teams, athletes and coaches who come for a competition to Canada,
- clergymen, members of a religious order,
- Foreign health-care students can do their clinical clerkships or work in Canada short-term without a work permit if:
• the main purpose of the work is to acquire training,
• they have a written approval from the Canadian regulatory board responsible for their occupation,
• their normal training practicum does not exceed four month
- Public speakers
Guest speakers, commercial speakers or seminar leaders can speak or deliver training in Canada without a work permit as long as the event is no longer than five days.
- Business visitors
A business visitor is someone who comes to Canada to engage in international business activities without directly entering the Canadian labour market.
(Note: the above list is not a full list, to get a complete list please contact our firm)
To be able to work in Canada for most of the jobs, applicants are required to apply for a work permit. Providing the following documents are necessary to process a work permit request:
• a job offer from a Canadian employer
• a completed application, that shows that you meet the requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations, and
• written confirmation from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) that the employer can hire a foreign worker to fill the job. This confirmation is called a positive labour market opinion.
If you have managed to receive a job offer from a Canadian employer please contact us to help you to obtain a confirmation from HRSDC and subsequently your work permit.
