What you need to know as Foreign worker, Travel restrictions and exemptions.
Before you travel to Canada
All travellers entering Canada must follow testing and quarantine requirements to keep everyone safe. You may be exempt from some of these requirements if you meet certain conditions. If you travel outside of Canada, you will need your work permit in addition to a valid travel document to re-enter.
If you haven’t applied for a work permit yet
If you haven’t applied for a work permit yet, you will need to follow specific instructions depending on your situation. In most cases, you will receive an approval letter from IRCC once your application is approved. You can activate the work permit after receiving it in the mail.
Temporary workers already in Canada
Temporary workers already in Canada have the right to change employers. It is illegal for your employer to punish or deport you for looking for another job. You may need to change your work permit before you can start working for a different employer.
