Checklist: Documents Needed to Apply for a Canada Work Permit

Contact Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah at Ackah Business Immigration Law-

Before you can work in Canada, you must apply for a Canadian work permit with the office of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Work permits (also known as work visas) are required for foreign nationals who want to work during their time in Canada. These are issued by IRCC and give authorization for someone to work legally in Canada.

There are specific documents that are required to get a Canada work permit; these documents may vary depending on your specific situation, including:

  • the type of work you are applying to perform
  • the region of Canada you want to work in
  • your home country
