Work permit for students
A student can now work without a diploma if he meets the conditions related to the study permit. When the studies are successfully completed, it is possible to quickly obtain a post diploma work permit
Work permit through an offer of employment
This work permit enables highly skilled or less skilled workers to be employed. Service Canada must validate the offer of employment as the work offered must in no way threaten the employment opportunities of a permanent resident or Canadian citizen. This permit is, therefore, reliant on being offered a very technical or rare position that is difficult to fill.
Work permit for qualified workers
At the federal level, a new « express entry » system is being integrated and should be available by January 2015. (link1, link 2) At the provincial level, all quotas have been filled for candidates outside of the province of Quebec. New quotas will be available by April 2015.
Other categories of work permits
There are many programs allowing work in Canada depending on origin (some countries are covered by reciprocal agreements, ex: international experience, NAFTA, …) depending on the destination (Quebec or other province), depending on job category (specialised or unspecialised), depending on job wanted, etc…
This permit is for those who want to come to study in Canada.
When coming from certain countries, you are required to obtain a visitor's visa to enter Canada, even as a tourist.
