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.

ELIGIBILITY

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.

GENERAL ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/work/apply-who-eligible.asp)

You must:

  • prove to an officer that you will leave Canada when your work permit expires,
  • show that you have enough money to take care of yourself and your family members during your stay in Canada and to return home,
  • obey the law and have no record of criminal activity (we may ask you to give us a police clearance certificate),
  • not be a danger to Canada’s security,
  • be in good health and have a medical exam, if needed,
  • not plan to work for an employer listed with the status “ineligible” on the list of employers who failed to comply with the conditions,
  • not plan to work for an employer who, on a regular basis, offers striptease, erotic dance, escort services or erotic massages, and
  • give the officer any other documents they ask for to prove you can enter the country.
