How to get a Work abroad Visa and Permit in Canada

According to the most recent statistics, it’s recorded that every year over 200,000 foreign workers migrate to work in Canada on a temporary work abroad permit or visa. However, immigrants don’t need to undergo the point-based assessment as the Canadian work visa also known as the Canadian work permit is the key to working in Canada.

To obtain a temporary work visa or permit, there are some criteria on a checklist to be granted a work abroad visa or permit. Also, before you can travel to Canada, depending on the country of citizenship, you’ll need to get a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV).

Labour Market Impact Assessment should be obtained, If necessary

Most job offers require the employer to apply for the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The LMIA is obtained from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). So, the employer must cooperate with the employee to complete this process. However, some job offers don’t require LMIA; these are LMIA exempt work permit, meaning you can work in Canada with just the work abroad visa.

Once a positive or neutral LMIA is granted, the Canadian employer would then provide a copy of the LMIA to the employee, which would be used to apply for the work abroad visa or permit in Canada. After the above process is satisfied, then you can apply for a work abroad visa or permit for Canada. I already published an article that details everything you need to know about Labour Market Impact Assessment, I advise you to go through it.

  1. Simply Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to apply for a work abroad visa or permit in Canada
  2. Submit your LMIA approved letter
  3. Depending on your country, you may need to obtain the temporary resident visa
  4. Monitor your application status and processing time
