Optional Work Permit

Work permits for Start-Up Visa applicants

Only foreign nationals who have received a Commitment Certificate and Letter of Support issued by a designated entity may be considered for a short-term work permit. The designated entity must support the request for a work permit.

If you meet the eligibility requirements, you can apply for a work permit. You do not need to apply for permanent residence first.

Note: Your Commitment Certificate is valid for six months from the day it is issued. You must submit your application for permanent residence before it expires, whether you apply for a work permit or not.

To be eligible for a work permit, you must:

  •  plan to live in a province or territory other than Quebec
  •  pay the employer compliance fee
  •  have received a Commitment Certificate and a Letter of Support from a designated entity indicating that you are “essential” and there are urgent business reasons for your early entry to Canada and
  •  have sufficient funds to meet the low income cut off for your family for 52 weeks

Before submitting an application for a work permit, you must submit your ‘self-employed’ offer of employment, as well as pay the $230 employer compliance fee
