Closed Work Permits

Closed work permits only allow you to work for a specific employer. 


For many, this means the Canadian employment requires Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). A positive LMIA demonstrates that there were no qualifying candidates in Canada for the job - this means the Canadian employer can now hire foreign workers.


Without a positive LMIA, the employer will not be able to offer you a job, even if you are fully qualified. 

Open Work Permits

Open work permits allows you the freedom to work almost anywhere in Canada. You do not need an LMIA or a job offer.

Examples of Open Work Permit Applicants:

  • Permanent Resident Applicants​​​

  • Spouse of Worker or Student

  • International Students
