Help Centre what do you need help with?

I have received a Canadian job offer. What documents do I need from my future employer?

In most cases, the employer must send you:

Once you have one of these numbers, you can apply to get, extend or modify a work permit.

If the employer is LMIA-exempt, find out how to get a work permit for these jobs.

If you apply for an open work permit, you don’t need to provide any documents from an employer.
