Working in Canada

When it comes to immi­grants work­ing in Canada, Citizenship and Immigration Canada quite bluntly states that “It is ille­gal to work with­out a required work per­mit.”

You must have a con­firmed job offer (in writ­ing) before you can apply for a work permit.

In gen­eral, you must apply for a work per­mit before you arrive in Canada.

To learn more about the process of apply­ing for a Canadian work per­mit, a good place to start is the Citizenship and Immigration Canada web­site.
