However, the rule for getting a work permit is dependent on the team for which they are working or playing. If an athlete or a staff represents a foreign-oriented team or acts as an individual athlete representing a foreign nation, they will not require any work permit to come and work in Canada. But if a foreign athlete joins a Canada-based sports team or intends to represent Canada in sports events, they will require a valid work permit. Moreover, in such cases, the Canadian employer can get LMIA exemptions. Thereby making the process of obtaining a work permit much easier.
- Firstly, the role of the foreign national plays an important role in determining the exemption of the work permit. If the individual has an active or hands-on role in the event organisation, they will require a work permit.
- If the individual has a supervisory or passive role in organising the convention or event, then the work permit will be exempted.
- Moreover, if a Canadian organisation holds the convention, a foreign convention organizer would require a work permit. Nonetheless, if it is a foreign event then the work permit will be exempted.
