How do I change employers?

To change employers, you must apply to change the conditions of your work permit.

Before you apply, your future employer must complete certain steps, depending on whether or not you need a Labour Market Impact Assessment.

If you need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

Your employer must give you:

Note: If you work in Quebec, you will also need a new Certificat d’acceptation du Québec.

If you are LMIA-exempt

Your employer must give you the offer of employment number they received when they submitted an offer of employment through the Employer Portal.

How to apply to change the conditions of your work permit

Apply online or mail your application to the Case Processing Centre in Vegreville, Alberta.

Note: Live-in caregivers and International Experience Canada participants must follow different steps to change employers.
