If you are doing your Work Permit application for the very first time or renewing it, you will need a letter from the employer confirming the job.

The offer letter is a letter that:

  • it is written on letterhead,
  • addressed to you and the CIC confirming the work offer (or renewal),
  • states the possible starting date,
  • mentions the proposed salary (or confirming if it is a renewal) and,
  • describes the activities carried out.

Actually, there is no specific format. We will put some examples here.

Tips before writing the Working Letter

Although it is not mandatory, here the objective here is to make it easy for the immigration agent to make a decision. For this reason, it is highly advisable to find the NOC equivalent of the position you are claiming. The description in the NOC list will help you write the letter.

Once with the position found, the next step is to write the letter yourself.

Sample Texts for the Job Offer Letter

We present some texts that have worked. Do not forget that the letters must be on the letterhead of the company and signed by an authority. It does not necessarily have to be the Director (aka CEO); deputy directors or managers can sign it.
