Working in Canada

Employed in Canada, looking for a job, starting a business?

Anyone who is not a Canadian resident or permanent resident requires a work permit or some form of authorisation to work in Canada. However, different programmes and processes exist for different occupations, professions and categories. A work permit does not allow a person to live in Canada permanently; to live in Canada permanently, a person must satisfy immigration criteria. Browse the pages listed on the left to find out more.
