What is Canada Open Work Permit?
In Canada, an open work permit is not job-specific. Because it is not job-specific, you will not require:
• An authorization from Employment and Social Development Canada (referred to as a Labour Market Impact Assessment, or LMIA), or
• Proof that an employer has submitted the Offer of Employment form and
• Payment of the employer compliance fee to Citizenship and Immigration Canada when applying for your work permit.
In most circumstances, you’ll have to pay the open work permit holder charge concurrently with the work permit cost.
