A work permit is the grant to take a job within a foreign country. It may also be a permit given to minors allowing them to work legally under child labor laws. Within an industry, a work permit may be required to act some functions within a factory outside normal operational tasks (such as maintenance tasks) — in few places they might be called Permit to Work.An open work permit is a work permit that is not job-specific.

  • A Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada; or
  • Proof that an employer has submitted an opportunity of employment via the Employer Portal and paid the employer compliance fee.
