Jobs You Can Do In Canada Without A Work Permit

One of the primary concerns of most Canadian immigrants is getting employment opportunities as soon as possible. Fortunately, there are certain jobs that they can do in Canada without having a work permit. Nevertheless, they will still need a Temporary Resident Visa to live in the country.

It’s risky to work in Canada without a permit. This is because future immigration applications may be rejected or delayed if an individual violates the terms.

This list contains the types of job that doesn’t require a permit:

  • After Sales Services
  • Employees of Short-Term Temporary Residents
  • Foreign Government Officers
  • Board of Directors Meeting
  • Business Visitors

An individual can work on a farm without a permit on these conditions:

  • The farm work will not be paid.
  • The main purpose of visiting was not to work on the farm but for tourism or visiting loved ones.
  • The farm is basically for meeting the needs of the owner and his immediate family members.

These are just short-term employment opportunities. Make sure that you meet the exemption requirement to be on the safer side. The best thing is to apply for a work permit if your job isn’t on this list.
