International Mobility Program: Unique work situations

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

To determine whether a temporary resident requires a work permit or a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), the officer should first determine whether the activity the person seeks to engage in constitutes “work” as defined by the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR). For a better understanding of the term “work”, refer to What is work.
