Canada’s Digital Nomad Visa

Canada recognizes its emerging position as a key player in the global tech talent arena. It aims to meet current job demands and attracts expertise and entrepreneurial spirit for future job creation.

A digital nomad is an individual who has the flexibility to work remotely from any global location. Applications for Digital Nomads are made under the visitor visa category. This allows the applicant to: 

  • Live in Canada for up to 6 months
  • Work remotely for their employer outside of Canada
  • Search for jobs

The Digital Nomad, under the visitor visa category, cannot work for a local employer until they change their visa status to a work permit.
