There are three types of temporary work visas for foreign nationals that want to work in Canada

Open work permit: Open work permits allows foreign nationals to work for Canadian employers anywhere in the country. Open work permit provides such facilities without even requesting the business to satisfy using a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

Employer-specific work permit: Employer-specific work permits allow foreign nationals to work through the LMIA process only if they do not find Canadians. 


Job outlook in Canada for 2022

Post-Graduate work permit: This work permit is for international students who have graduated from a Canadian college or university and are interested in living and working in Canada. The Post-Graduate work permit (PGWP) grant is dependent on the length of the study program and is equivalent to the length of the permit.

New Pathway for International Students

  • A new routine or a pathway to permanent residency for international students that may modify the rules in terms of study permits.
  • Presently, international students are expected to leave Canada once their study and work permits are expired. These students also need to provide proof of funds to support themselves in Canada.
  • International students must obtain permission from the province, even in Quebec, before getting a study permit. This permission can be obtained by applying for the Quebec Certificate of Selection (CSQ)
  • That permission is obtained by applying for a Quebec Certificate of Selection (CSQ) only once the student accepts the study program.
  • Around one-third of international students planning to come to Canada apply for permanent residence after Graduation. This actually means these students initially get a study permit to complete their studies and then apply for PGWP if the student gets a job after Graduation. This will help them gain work experience in Canada and later improve their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score to obtain permanent residency using Express Entry.
