Work Permit

You usually need a work permit to work in Canada. In some cases, you can work without a permit.

Post Graduate Work Permit:
To work in Canada after you graduate, you need a work permit. The work experience you gain while working may help you qualify for permanent residence. Graduates of certain designated learning institutions are eligible for this work permit.

Permanent residence for caregivers

Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot

As of June 18, 2019, you may be able to apply for permanent residence through the Home Child Care Provider Pilot or Home Support Worker Pilot if you:

meet the eligibility requirements, and

have a job offer to work in one of these occupations.

Through these pilots, you’ll get an open work permit to come to Canada and work temporarily. This work permit:

is occupation-restricted (so you have to work in that specific occupation)

doesn’t need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

lets you get the work experience you need to be eligible for permanent residence

If you recently worked as a home child care provider or support worker, your experience may count towards your eligibility for permanent residence.
