An employer-specific work permit allows you to work according to the conditions on your work permit, which include:

  • the location where you can work (if applicable)

An open work permit allows you to work for any employer in Canada, except for an employer:

  • who is listed as ineligible on the list of employers who have failed to comply with the conditions or

  • who regularly offers striptease, erotic dance, escort services, or erotic massages


When you may be eligible for an open work permit:

  • You are an international student who graduated from a designated learning institution and are eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program;

  • You are a student who’s no longer able to meet the costs of your studies (destitute student)

  • You have an employer-specific work permit and are being abused or at risk of being abused concerning your job in Canada;

Temporary jobs

Immigration is a life-changing step, and you might not feel ready to change your life forever. 

It’s okay! 

If you don’t feel like buying a one-way ticket yet, you can try to find a temporary job (for one season/few months/one year). 

This option opens an opportunity to find out if this country is right for you and if you want to move here for life. 

While working, you encounter circumstances you never come across during traveling.  

You’ll need to rent an apartment, pay bills, go to the doctor, open a bank account, etc. 

This experience will answer all of your questions better than any consultant, relative or friend. 

At the end of the day, every person is different, and it’s always better to make decisions based on your feelings and experiences.
