An open Work Permit is different from a regular work permit as it does not specify a particular job or employer. An Open Work Permit allows its holder to work for any Canadian employer, in almost any capacity. Open Work Permits do not require the applicant to have either an offer of employment or a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
