How To Get A Job In Canada?

We wish we could give a simple ‘yes’ as the answer but in reality, it is not. If getting a job were so easy then everybody would do it. Getting a job is more in the hands of the Canadian employer rather than the applicant who is looking for a job. So, ideally, the suitable way to go about it is applying for the Express entry program to attain your PR first and start looking for a job.

Getting A Closed Work Permit could be an expensive procedure as the Canadian employer has to first try everything that he/she can to employ a citizen or a permanent resident in Canada for the job. Only when the employer has exhausted all options does he apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment. A Lab our Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada may need to get before hiring a foreign worker.

If the LMIA is positive, then it means that there is a requirement for a foreign national and that no Canadian worker has been able to successfully obtain the same job. The Employer applies for an LMIA with the Canadian Government (ESDC). Once the employer gets the LMIA, then the foreign national can apply for a work permit. To apply for a work permit, he/she needs:

  • job offer letter
  • contract
  • LMIA number

Applying for a work permit

There are 2 types of work permits.

  • Openwork permit
  • Employer specific or closed work permit

An open work permit allows a worker to be employed by any employer in Canada except those that have been listed as ineligible i.e. employers who fail to comply with the norms.
