CANADA WORK PERMIT VISA
Canada Work Permit Eligibility
Canada work permit, or a work visa, is issued to eligible overseas individuals to work in that country for a specific time period.
People need to apply for a work visa only after getting a job offer or an employment contract from a Canadian employer. The employer must obtain from ESDC (Employment and Social Development Canada) an LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment), which gives them permission to recruit foreign skilled workers for occupations that cannot be filled in by citizens or permanent residents of Canada.
Applicants need to show proof that they are eligible to take up the job offer.

Applicants should also be able to convince immigration officials that they would return to their home country after the end of their employment.
