Obtain a temporary work permit for work in Canada

There are several ways to come work temporarily in Canada. If you are from a country for which Canada does not require visitors to have a visitor visa, it is even possible for you to obtain a work permit by applying at a Port-of-Entry (land border or airport). This makes the application process much quicker. Note that if you are not from a visa-exempt country, you also need to apply for a visitor’s visa before coming to work in Canada. ImmKel can assist you in applying for a temporary work permit in Canada, provided you have an offer for full-time work from a legitimate Canadian employer.
