Temporary Residence

Working temporarily in Canada

Information for Haitian nationals currently in Canada temporarily who want to apply for a work permit.

Every year, over 150,000 foreign workers enter Canada to work temporarily in jobs that help Canadian employers address skill shortages, or to work as live-in caregivers.

A work permit is needed for most temporary jobs in Canada. Some jobs do not require a work permit.

If you intend to work in the province of Quebec, you must obtain a certificat d’acceptation du Québec (CAQ)before a work permit can be issued.
