  41. 41. Do your Clients Need a Work Permit to Intern / Work / Volunteer in Canada? BASIC RULE: Anyone who wants to “Work” in Canada must first obtain a “Work Permit” “Work” is an activity for which wages are earned or that competes directly with activities of Canadians in the Canadian labour market.
  42. 42. Test: Will they get paid or will they be doing something that a Canadian should really have an opportunity to do?  Examples of “Work” include : “Unpaid employment done for the purpose of obtaining work experience such as an internship or practicum normally done by a student”  Examples of “non-work activity:  unpaid volunteer work that is part-time and “incidental to the main reason the person is in Canada” – eg. Being a Big Brother, sitting on the board of a charity institution, volunteering at a fund raising event…  Volunteering for the National Parks – not taking away an opportunity from a Canadian
