How long can I work in Canada as a temporary worker?

There is no set maximum amount of time you can work in Canada as a temporary worker. The length of time you can work depends on:

  • the job offer from your employer
  • the length of time listed on your Labour Market Impact Assessment, if your employer needed to get one to hire you
  • how long your passport is valid for

If you will be working in Quebec as a temporary worker, you may need to get a Certificat d’acceptation du Québec (CAQ). The CAQ will show the length of time you are allowed to work in Quebec. If you are exempt from the LMIA process, you don’t need to get a CAQ.
