Work Permits Under the North American Free Trade Agreement: NAFTA

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has created benefits for U.S. and Mexican citizens interested in entering Canada for business. NAFTA allows those who are citizens of the U.S., Mexico and Canada to quickly and easily enter the member countries for investment or business reasons or temporary employment. Non-member citizens must obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment and obtain a Work Permit in order to work in Canada. Those who qualify under NAFTA need to meet the standard rules for admissibility into Canada. Contact us today at (403) 452-9515 Ext. 100 or 1-800-932-1190 or email us directly.
