What you should know if you want to work in Canada

▪   Your employer may need to get a labour market opinion (LMO) to hire you. This is a document from the Government of Canada that gives your employer permission to hire a foreign worker.

▪   Some jobs do not need an LMO.

▪   You must meet the requirements to:

▪                     enter the country,  

▪                     stay in Canada and

▪                     get a work permit. This means you may also need a visitor visa.

▪   A work permit does not let you live in Canada permanently. To do so, you must qualify under an immigration category as a permanent resident.

▪   Live–in caregivers who meet certain requirements can apply to stay in Canada permanently.

Your spouse or common-law partner and your dependent children may apply to come to Canada with you.
