Foreign nationals can be authorized to work in Canada through various processes. Over 150,000 foreigners come to work in Canada every year. Many of these workers stay temporarily to advance their skills, experience and career opportunities before returning to their home country. Others apply and successfully obtain their Permanent Residency.

Canada Immigration does not usually offer open work permits, allowing you (the foreign national) to work anywhere. They are always employer specific, tied to you and one employer who you have approached and that the employer has offered a job that they could not fill with a Canadian candidate. These positions of course by nature must be reasonably technical and highly skilled (in the O, A or B band of the National Classification of Occupations), and you as the candidate having the required education to support the position.
