Owner-Operator Work Permit

Foreign nationals who want to open a business and work in Canada can apply for a special Work Permit under the Entrepreneurs/Self-employed category, also known as an Owner-Operator Work Permit.

Business owners can qualify for two types of Owner-Operator Work Permits:

  1. Owner-Operator Work Permit based on a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
  2. Owner-Operator Work Permit under the International Mobility Program (IMP)

For Owner-Operators who apply under the LMIA program, they must have at minimum 50% ownership of the company and they may also benefit by receiving 200 points for an Express Entry permanent resident application as having a senior manager position (NOC 00).

Contact us today at (403) 452-9515 Ext. 100 or 1-800-932-1190 or email us directly.
