There are 2 roads to obtain a work permit
1. Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) based Work Permits
Most work permits require a positive LMIA from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). The impact on the Canadian labour market is evaluated and a positive LMIA will be given where the impact on Canada's labour market is likely to be neutral or positive.
2. LMIA Exempt Work Permits
Some types of work permits may be issued without a positive LMIA. The criteria for LMIA exempt work permits are specific and clearly defined.
