Individuals who are neither Canadian Permanent Residents, nor Canadian Citizens, and who wish to reside in Canada temporarily for employment purposes will likely have to apply for a Work Permit. Every year over 150,000 foreign workers, come to Canada to work. A Work Permit is not issue for persons wanting to come to Canada to look for work. It is only issue once an offer of employment has made. Many of these workers fill skill shortages in many Canadian companies, while others work as live-in caregivers.
It should note that a Work Permit is not an employment contract. It is strictly for the purposes of allowing a foreign national to work in Canada to fill a labor shortage, and to support economic growth in Canada.

If the Foreign National does not abide by the terms and conditions set out in the Work Permit, the Foreign National may be prosecuted or ask to leave Canada. The employer may also receive disciplinary action or face charges.
