Religious Worker Applications
IRCC states that you’re a religious worker if you’ll:
- provide religious instruction,
- promote a faith, or
- do similar work that has a religious objective
Normally, you must also share the beliefs of the religious community where you’ll work, and you’ll follow the spiritual teachings of its faith.
To be eligible you must have a valid offer of employment and a offer of employment number. You must also be able to meet the general eligibility requirements for a work permit.

- prove to an officer that you will leave Canada when your work permit expires,
