The definition of work as per Sec 2 of the IRPA regulations is "an
activity for which wages are paid or commission is earned, or that is in
direct competition with the activities if Canadian citizens or permanent
residents in the Canadian labour market". Most temporary jobs require
the applicant to obtain a work permit to Canada. The requirements depend
on the occupation of the applicant and the work to be performed in Canada
on the work permit. The most important aspect of the work permit is to browse
through the National Occupation Classification of Canada, which lists the
various occupations and education and employment requirements for each occupation,
and to equate the responsibilities and duties of the position sought after
with what the applicant is currently performing of has performed in the
recent past. The link for the National Occupation classification is http://www23.hrdc-drhc.gc.ca/2001/e/generic/welcome.shtml.
In most cases work permits must be applied from outside of Canada.
