There are 2 types of work permits: open work permits and employer-specific work permits.

An employer-specific work permit allows you to work according to the conditions on your work permit. It is linked to a specific job, employer and location.
Canadian employers who wish to hire foreign workers process the required documentation with the immigration department. This allows an employer to hire a foreign national through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) to work for his job requirements. The program’s objective is to assist the employers who have demonstrated a need to fill in jobs for the success of their businesses.
