A work permit is a legal document permitting a foreign national to engage in employment while inside of Canada. Each year, Canada issues about half a million work permits to temporary foreign workers around the world. Canada is a prime destination for many foreign nationals who are seeking employment opportunities. Working in Canada is also an excellent first step for those seeking to immigrate to the country permanently.
The process for obtaining a Canadian work permit varies greatly depending on which type of work permit a person is applying for.
Skilled workers applying directly for permanent residence mainly come through Express Entry.
Canada Express Entry manages the intake of skilled workers to the main federal economic programs, plus certain provincial streams.
Candidates wishing to come to Canada through one of these programs must first register a profile in the Express Entry pool.
This profile is given a score against a Comprehensive Ranking System, with the highest scoring profiles receiving an Invitation to Apply in regular draws.
There are many ways in which candidates can boost their score while in the Express Entry Pool, including by securing a qualified job offer in Canada, depending on the skill level.
