Types of Canadian work permits
Canada offers a variety of work permits for foreign workers seeking to work in the country. These work permits are designed to cater to different employment scenarios, including temporary and permanent employment. Some of the common types of work permits available in Canada include employer-specific work permits, open work permits, and international experience Canada work permits.
Employer-specific work permits are designed for foreign workers who have a job offer from a specific Canadian employer. The employer must have an LMIA or an LMIA-exemption to sponsor a foreign worker for an employer-specific work permit. This type of work permit is valid for the duration of the job offer and is tied to a specific employer.
Open work permits, on the other hand, allow foreign workers to work for any Canadian employer. These work permits are not tied to a specific job or employer and are available to individuals who meet specific eligibility requirements. Open work permits can be valid for up to three years and may be extended under certain conditions.
International Experience Canada (IEC) work permits are available to young adults from countries that have a bilateral agreement with Canada. The IEC program offers three different categories of work permits: working holiday, young professional, and international co-op. The work permits are valid for up to two years and offer an excellent opportunity for young adults to gain valuable work experience in Canada.
Canadian work permit statistics
In 2020, Canada issued over 400,000 work permits, with over half of these permits being employer-specific work permits. The number of work permits issued by Canada has been steadily increasing over the past decade, with a 68% increase in the number of work permits issued between 2010 and 2019. The top occupations that were granted work permits were software engineers, administrative assistants, retail sales supervisors, and computer programmers and interactive media developers. These occupations reflect Canada's need for skilled workers in a range of industries.
Most work permits were issued to workers from India, the Philippines, China, the United States, and Mexico. The largest industries employing foreign workers in Canada were the professional, scientific, and technical services, the retail trade, the accommodation and food services, and the healthcare and social assistance industries.
