An open work permit is a work permit that is not job-specific. It allows a person to work for any employer for a specified period of time in Canada. 

There are two types of open work permits:

  • Unrestricted (allowing foreign nationals to work in any occupation and location)
  • Restricted (restricting the occupation or the location)


Open Work Permits are highly desirable because of the freedom and flexibility they give their holders. This type of permit can allow holders to not be restricted to one employer or a specific location in Canada, but it depends on the type of Open Work Permit. The benefit of having the mobility in employment can help holders progress their career goals by giving them more discretion to find opportunities all over Canada. As they gain more Canadian work experience, they will be well on their way to gaining eligibility for permanent residence. Open Work Permits are Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exempted which means it is less costly and there is no need for employers to get involved in the immigration process.

For a restricted Open Work Permit, holders are not restricted on a specific employer, but the type of occupation under a specific NOC class.
