Open Work Permit

Open Work Permit

An Open Work permit is a type of work permit that does not restrict a foreign worker’s employer or occupation nor does it require a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

You may be eligible for an open work permit in the following situations:

  • Permanent residence applicants who have applied to an office in Canada
  • Dependent family members of some permanent residence applicants
  • Spouses and common-law partners of some workers and international students
  • Refugees, refugee claimants, protected persons and their family members
  • Some temporary resident permit holders, or
  • Some young workers participating in special programs.

Note: You may need to meet other criteria or requirements to be eligible.

Once issued a work permit, you will be allowed to work in Canada subject to the conditions of your work permit, which will include the duration of work.

Our regulated immigration consultants can assess your qualifications and give you valuable advice on how you can maximize your chances of coming to Canada. You can start by taking our FREE ASSESSMENT or contacting us here.
