Canada’s immigration programs currently offer two types of work permits:

* Employer-specific work permit

* Open work permit


The employer-specific work permit means that there will be restrictions on the work permit that allows you to work only for that specific employer for a particular duration of time. Usually, an employer-specific work permit can be obtained if you are able to obtain approved LMIA from any employer.
