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.
