THE work permit/VISA

Depending on which passport you hold, if you plan on working in Canada you will need a work permit and possibly a visa. New Zealand Passport Holders may need to apply for their IEC work permit as above (link). It allows New Zealanders between the ages of 18 and 30 to work in Canada for up to 24 months. CCUSA’s preferred immigration advisers will advise you on your options after you have been placed.
