Working in Canada
There are number of ways you can come to Canada and work. The first step is having a valid job offer with an employer in Canada. Once you have a job offer we can move to the second step and see under what category you best fit into apply for Work Permit whether it is the GATS, NAFTA or whatever it may be. Depending on your country of citizenship and nature of work your employer may have to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) prior to offering the job.
An LMIA is a Labour Market Impact Assessment, this is an employer application for company’s who cannot fill vacant positions with qualified Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents, and would therefore like to be able to hire skilled foreign workers on either a short term basis (LMIA for work permit) or permanently (LMIA to support PR) to satisfy their employment needs.
This application is processed by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), not by Immigration, Refugee & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) even though the LMIA can be used to support, and is sometimes a requirement for immigration applications such as closed work permits and Permanent Residence.
Also, depending on your country of citizenship you may or not be eligible to apply from inside of Canada. Depending on your job duties or your intended occupation your Work Permit in Canada can possibly lead to obtaining Permanent Residency. For example, you may eligible to apply for Permanent Residency under the Canadian Experience if you meet the skill level under NOC A, B or O.
