Help Centre what do you need help with?

Does each person applying for a work permit from outside Canada have to fill out a separate application?

All applicants must complete and sign their own application, even if they’re travelling to Canada together as a family. A parent or guardian must sign the form for applicants under the age of 18.

Some family members can apply for an open work permit at the same time as the principal work permit applicant. It depends on the type of worker the principal applicant is.
