Immigrating to Canada

Work permit

  • If you are not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, you will need a work permit to work in British Columbia.
  • After accepting a job offer from Northern Health, a Labour Market Opinion (LMO) will be obtained on your behalf.
  • A positive LMO is required as part of your application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for a work permit.

Permanent residency

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) helps eligible candidates fast-track their applications for Canadian permanent resident status. To learn more about the program, including fees, process and requirements, visit their site.
