Are there other work permit options I can consider while I wait for my permanent resident application to be processed?
If you already applied for a work permit under the Home Child Care Provider or Home Support Worker Pilots, it will take a while to process your application.
You may also want to apply separately for a work permit or extend your current one under the
- Temporary Foreign Worker Program or
- International Mobility Program
Due to COVID-19, we’ve put some measures in place to help you. If you have an employer-specific work permit and you want to change jobs or employers, you
- must apply for a new work permit from inside Canada
- don’t need to wait until we approve the application to start your new job or work for a new employer
- just need an email from us that says you have permission to change jobs
