Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program

If you’ll be working in the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program, you’re not eligible to apply for a work permit at a POE.
In most cases, you need to give biometrics. After you pay the biometrics fee and submit your application, we’ll send you a letter that says you need to give your biometrics. The letter will tell you how and where to give your biometrics. You have up to 30 days to give your biometrics (in person).
If you didn’t pay the biometrics fee, we’ll send you a letter asking you to do this first. You can only get the instruction letter if you pay the biometrics fee.
To come to Canada temporarily, you need to give biometrics once every 10 years. If you gave biometrics in the past and they’re still valid, you don’t need to give them again. Find out if your biometrics are still valid and when they expire by using the Check Status Tool.

Work Permit Application

We’ll check your application to make sure you have all the necessary documents.
If it’s incomplete, we’ll return your application without processing it.
We may also ask you to:

  • go to an interview with our officials in your country, or
  • to send more information
You might need a medical exam to enter Canada. If you do, an officer will tell you and will send you instructions on what to do. A medical exam can add over 3 months to the time it takes us to process your application. An officer will also check:
  • the list of employers who failed to comply with the conditions to make sure that the employer can hire you, and
  • that you qualify for a work permit and have given us all the documents we need

If your application is approved

If your application is approved, you’ll get a letter that says you’re allowed to work in Canada. Bring this letter with you when you travel to Canada. That letter is not a work permit. You’ll get your work permit when you arrive in Canada. The work permit will outline:
  • the type of work you can do
  • the employer you can work for
  • where you can work, and
  • how long you can work

If you applied for your work permit at the port of entry

If you’re eligible to apply for the work permit as you enter Canada and are approved, the border services officer may then give you a work permit that sets out any conditions on your stay and work in Canada.

If you applied for your work permit from inside Canada

If you’re eligible to apply from within Canada, we’ll mail the work permit to the Canadian address you gave us.

Atlantic Immigration (Pilot) program

(A) LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment)

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot helps you hire qualified candidates for jobs you haven’t been able to fill locally. These candidates can be overseas or living in Canada temporarily. There are 3 programs you can use to hire someone:

Each program has requirements that you and the candidate must meet.
Before you make a job offer, you must be designated by the provincial government of the Atlantic province where the candidate will be working.
Once you make a job offer, you and the candidate will work through several steps. If you and the candidate meet all the requirements, the candidate gets permanent resident status in Canada.
