What is work?

“Work” is defined in the Regulations as an activity for which wages are paid or commission is earned, or that competes directly with activities of Canadian citizens or permanent residents in the Canadian labour market. Volunteer activities that are not “work” do not require a work permit. Please refer directly to the IRCC website to learn more about volunteer work and permits here
