We are going to assess your qualifications to see if you are eligible, the documents required and of course, the step by step process. Now in general, working in Canada requires two important things.
No 1, you as an employee must have a valid work permit.
Let me show you what a valid work permit looks like. All right, so this is how a valid work permit looks like and this is exactly what you’re going to get once you save your work permit approval. Now on the upper left hand and right hand corners, you will see Canada being printed.
This is where you’re going to see your work Permit number and then down here is your personal information such as your family name, your given name, date of birth, and you will see that this person is from Nigeria. And then down below here you will see the occupation and right next to it is open, which means that this is an open work permit.
The employer hiring you must obtain a positive LMIA. If you are not familiar with LMIA. It stands for labor market impact assessment. Unfortunately, the process of obtaining a positive LMIA can take a huge amount of time and is quite exhaustive to be honest. That’s why in this article, I am going to be introducing a program that will get rid of the second requirement and just focus on getting a valid work permit and making it faster and more efficient way you to be able to work in Canada.
Alright, so this program is called the International mobility program, also called the open work permit, and as I mentioned to you a while ago, the best thing about this program is that it does not require a positive LMIA. Now before we get into this step by step process on how to obtain an open work permit through the international mobility program. Let me tell you the three types of open work permit which is more important For you, if you’re someone who’s been wanting to work in Canada.
Alright, so the first type of work permit is the unrestricted work permit, which allows you to change employers occupation and the location of work. So let’s say for example, that you received a valid, unrestricted work permit that allows you to work in the community of SAULT STE. MARIE, which is located in the upper part of Ontario, Canada, however you wanted to move and work in downtown Toronto, then that is totally fine with this type of work permit.
Now the second type of open work permit is called the restricted work permit, which allows you to change employer but do not allow you to change your occupation. Alright, so let’s say for example, that you received a valid restricted work permit in the community of SAULT STE. MARIE as a computer programmer.
However, you decided that you want to move to Toronto and work in downtown Toronto instead, then that is totally fine under this type of work permit, however, you must remain working as a computer programmer in downtown Toronto.
Now the third type of open work permit is the same as the second type, which is restricted work permit. However, the difference is that with this work permit, it allows you to change employer but does not allow you to change the location of work. Now, going back to our same example, with these type of work permit, you are not allowed to move from Susan Marie all the way to Toronto, however you can change employer with in SAULT STE MARIE.
