3. Find out if you can apply for a work permit
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has rules about who can apply for a work permit from inside Canada.
For example, you can apply from inside Canada if:
- You're a refugee claimant whose claim has been referred to the Immigration and Refugee Board for a hearing.
- You have a work permit or study permit, or you are here as the spouse or child of someone who has a work or study permit.
