OPEN WORK PERMIT
An Open work-permit is an LMIA exempt, non-employer-specific authorisation for an individual to work for any employer, anywhere in Canada. As in the case with most of the LMIA exempt work-permits a job offer is still required but in the case of open work permits the requirement of a job offer is waived off.
Although an Open Work permit is LMIA, employer and location exempt but it may or may not come with occupational restrictions depending on the applicant’s medical status.
