Work permits closed without LMIA are in the middle. They allow foreign workers to work in a specific position for a particular employer, but do not require LMIA. Unlike the timely foreign worker program, where, in some cases, work permits may be issued based on market conditions of thought, the international mobility program serves Canada`s general economic and cultural interests. This could take one form: how many temporary workers are allowed to work temporarily or temporarily or on a permanent basis under NAFTA.

Essential skills or services are specific qualifications that are essential to the effectiveness of the company`s Canadian business activities, beyond the qualifications required by an ordinary skilled worker. The temporary entry provisions of NAFTA are in addition to the general entry rules for foreign temporary workers. Foreign nationals who work for themselves or who wish to temporarily operate in Canada must demonstrate that their activities would bring significant economic, social or cultural benefits to Canadian citizens or permanent residents in order to obtain an exemption from the AMIA. Construction and construction work includes installation, maintenance and repair: on the other hand, an open work permit allows foreign workers to work in any position, for every employer, across Canada. Because open work permits are not limited to a profession or employer, they do not require LMIA. They also do not need a job offer to apply for an open work permit.
