Open Work Permit Canada

An open work permit is a work permit that is not job-specific, and as such a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or proof of employment offer are not prerequisites to be eligible for an open work permit. 


  • International students who have graduated from a designated learning institution and who are eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program,
  • Students who are no longer to meet the costs of their studies (destitute student),
  • Foreign nationals who have applied for permanent residence in Canada,
  • Foreign nationals who are the dependent family members of someone who has applied for permanent residence,
  • The spouse or common-law partner of a skilled worker or international student,
  • Refugees, refugee claimants, protected persons, or their family members,
  • Temporary resident permit holders.

In each of these situations, the applicant must meet additional criteria to be eligible which you can discuss with our Canadian Immigration expert.
