Canada has always maintained a solid ranking among the top ten best countries of the world as a great place to work and live in. Every year, thousands of people come to Canada as temporary foreign workers. Canadian working conditions are in high standard and remuneration/salaries very often exceed those of other countries. Furthermore, Canada offers great career opportunities, a unique organizational culture, and countless ways to grow in life.
To work in Canada on a temporary basis foreign nationals need to obtain a work permit. In order to get a Canadian work permit, also referred as a Canadian work visa, foreign nationals must receive a job offer from a Canadian employer. An offer of employment is usually required before the worker may be granted a Temporary Work Permit by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
