Immigration to Canada
More than 60 Canadian immigration programs are available to individuals seeking to immigrate to Canada. Our comprehensive assessment method evaluates your eligibility across ALL categories. Ensuring you select the Canadian immigration category best suited for your circumstances can be overwhelming.
The path to Canadian citizenship begins by acquiring Canadian permanent resident status. Similar to a “Green Card” in the United States, a Canada Permanent Resident Card will enable you to work and live in Canada. The best way of determining if you qualify for Canadian Permanent Residency, through one of Canada’s many immigration programs, is to fill out our assessment form. Our Canadian immigration team will carefully review your assessment and get back to you within 24 hours.
The federal government of Canada gives every province some selection discretion, most notably exemplified by the Provincial Nomination Programs. However, the level of deference afforded to Quebec is unrivaled. Quebec Immigration programs will typically have different selection criteria, based on Quebec’s cultural uniqueness. Despite the selection powers that provinces hold, all final Canadian immigration decisions fall under federal jurisdiction.

How to Apply for a Canadian Work Permit
Typically, obtaining a Canadian work permit is a two-step process. In most cases, applicants will first require a job offer before they can apply for a Canadian work permit.
In the vast majority of cases, the first step towards obtaining a Canadian work permit is to apply for a Job Offer from Canadian Employer and Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). Usually, the Canadian employer must undertake domestic recruitment efforts and demonstrate that no Canadian permanent residents or citizens are qualified for the position at hand.
After a positive LMIA has been issued, the applicant can apply for a Canadian work permit on that basis.
Work permits are employer specific, unless a worker has an open work permit. If a worker wants to change employers, they must obtain a new Work Permit before performing another job in Canada. Canadian work permits are also limited in duration.
Work Permit Duration
All Canadian work permits have an expiry date. The only way to work in Canada permanently, or for an unspecified length of time, is to acquire permanent resident status.
The Canadian government puts limits on the length of Canadian work permits as well as the accumulated length of time that non-Canadians can work in Canada. The total number of months’ individuals may work in Canada—whether worked consecutively or with gaps between permits—is 48, or four years total.
Once the maximum of four years’ work has been accumulated, foreign workers will have to leave Canada and remain outside of the country for at least 48 months (4 years) before being eligible to work in Canada again.
Open Work Permit Canada
An open work Permit differs from a regular work permit in that it does not specify a particular job or employer. Generally, the job and employer are both indicated on Canadian Work Permits, thereby restricting the holder to those circumstances while in Canada. An Open Work Permit allows its holder to work for any Canadian employer, in almost any capacity.
Open Work Permits do not require the applicant to have either an offer of employment or a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
As per Canadian immigration regulations, Open Work Permits may be applied for by:
Spouses or common-law partners of temporary foreign workers in a level 0, A or B occupation, according to the National Occupation Classification (NOC);
The spouses or common-law partners of foreign students engaged in full-time study;
International students who have recently graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution
Canadian Work Permit Exemption
You may qualify for a Canadian work permit exemption in one of the following circumstances:
Family members of foreign representatives
Athletes and team members
News reporters, media crews
Judges, referees and similar officials
Examiners and evaluators
Expert witnesses or investigators
Foreign government officers
Health care students
Civil aviation inspector
Aviation accident or incident inspector
