Working


When moving to a new home, its important to know how you’re going to support yourself and your family. Finding work can be a challenge, but luckily Ontario has a strong, diversified economy with many kinds of work and many different industries. Cornwall is no exception.

If you are a permanent resident, you are allowed to work in Canada and do not have to apply for a work permit. If you are just staying temporarily, you will need to get a temporary work permit.
