Work Permits for Canada
Canada is always on the lookout for professionals and workers to build its national workforce. There are a number of different options for Canadian employers looking to fill a void in their business by hiring foreign workers. About 90,000 foreign workers come to Canada on a yearly basis. In most cases, foreign workers have to obtain a work permit, before they can work in Canada.
If you wish to work in the province of Quebec, you will have to apply for and receive a “certificate d’acceptation du Quebec” (CAQ).
There are different types of work permits available to foreign workers.
Some work permits require an LMIA and some are LMIA exempt.
Some types of work do not require a work permit. A list of work permit exempt jobs is reproduced for your information.
