Work permit conditions | Meurrens law


On the IRCC website.

A work permit is a document that allows a foreign national to legally work in Canada. It contains rules or “conditions” that the worker must follow and often contains other “additional information” and “notes.”

Conditions vs remarks

The conditions of a work permit specifically tell a foreign national what they can and cannot do. For example, it might say that they can only work at a particular location and nowhere else.

Sometimes some details of a work permit are just “additional information” or “remarks”. These are not the same conditions. They give more information but don’t necessarily have rules to follow.


The place of work is not automatically imposed by law. If a work permit includes the name of a workplace in the “additional information” section but does not specify as a condition that the foreign national “is not authorized to work in any other location”, this means that he may change geographic location. of work.

This is not the same as “employer” or “profession” which are taxed.
