Work in Canada
Apply to work in Canada, extend a work permit or hire a foreign worker.
Canada Post is currently in labour negotiations. Failed negotiations could lead to delays in:
- receiving applications mailed within or to Canada
- sending mail to you
If you’re planning on traveling to Canada or submitting an application (including for a passport or other travel document), apply early.
If you are travelling within the next six weeks, apply for a passport in person at a Passport Office, or send your passport or other travel document application by courier.
Visit Canada Post for more information before sending any application by mail. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
