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.
