Around 100,000 foreign workers come to Canada for employment every year. Depending on your citizenship, you may need to apply a work permit before coming to Canada.
The employer who are offering job to you also may need to validate the job offer with the Ministry of Human Resource and Skill Development Canada with the positive or Neutral Labour Market Opinion before you proceed to apply a work permit at Canadian visa office.
An employment authorization or Work Permit from a Canadian visa office will allow you to work in Canada. The employment authorization is usually valid for one to two year. Make sure you renew your employment authorization before it expires. It is now possible to do this by mail through the Canada Immigration Centre.
Remember that the document authorizes you to work only for the employer named on the employment authorization. However, this does not mean you cannot change employers for personal or other reasons. If that is the case, you must apply for and have received a new employment authorization before you go to work for the new employer.
Both you and your employer should be aware that you are free to change employers while in Canada. Immigration Canada will not deport you for looking for another place to work.
Involvement in any illegal activity could result in the cancellation of your permission to work in Canada. You cannot, for example, work for any employer except the employer named on your employment authorization.
