Employer-specific Work Permit

Foreign nationals who are looking to work in Canada are most likely to obtain a closed work permit with or without Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This is also called and referred as Employer-specific Work Permit. An Employer-specific work permit allows foreign nationals to work according to the conditions or limitations on the work permit. It limits a foreign national to one employer and is only authorized to work for one employer, in one position, in Canada.

This work permit allows you to work according to the conditions on your work permit, which include:

  • Name of the employer you can work for
  • How long you can work for this employer
  • Location where you can work (if applicable)
