Permits operating in Canada for workers.
There are two broad categories that Canadian Work
permits fall under: the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and the International Mobility Program (IMP). Lets us understand them one by one.

employer to get what is called a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). In simple terms, the LMIA process is a way to prove that hiring a foreign worker will have a neutral or positive impact on the Canadian
That being said, the Global Talent Stream, which operates under the TFWP, is a Work Permit
program that allows tech workers in certain occupations or who are hired at participating companies to get an expedited Work Permit

International Mobility Program
LMIAs are not needed for the IMP, because the program exists to promote Canada’s broad economic, social, and cultural policy objectives. This program is broken down further into categories such as Significant Benefit, and Charitable and Religious workers.
