Are there any conditions on my work permit?
Some conditions will be written directly on your work permit.
These may include:
- the type of work you can do,
- the employer you can work for,
- where you can work, or
- how long you can work.
Regulation 185 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations lists all the conditions that may be put on your work permit.
There are also standard conditions that apply to all work permit holders. Even if you have no specific conditions on your work permit, you still must:
- not work for an employer in a business where there are reasonable grounds to suspect a risk of sexual exploitation of some workers, specifically:
- strip clubs,
- massage parlours, and
- escort agencies,
- leave Canada at the end of your authorized stay.
