What is a Work Permit?
An official document that allows a foreigner to work legally in Canada for a particular period. It sets out conditions for the worker such as:
- the type of work they can do,
- the employer they can work for,
- where they can, and
- how long they can work.
Canada is actively seeking foreign workers and professionals to help grow its strong national workforce.

A Visitor Visa or a Temporary Resident Visa is an official document that we stick in your passport. Its shows that you meet the requirements needed to enter Canada. Individuals who wish to enter for a temporary purpose, such as tourist, temporary foreign workers and international students must apply for Visitor Visa.
You can stay for up to 6 months. It is important to note that possession of a valid TRV does not mean that the Officer at the Canadian Port of Entry will admit you into Canada. You must demonstrate that the purpose of your visit is of a temporary nature. The Officer will deny admission to all persons who so not intend to leave Canada at the expiry of their visitor status.

What is Franchise?
Franchising is a way of distributing products and services. The franchiser (original business owner) grants a licence for the use of his trademark or trade name for a fee. The franchisee (person who buys the franchise) is allowed to use the franchiser's business name and operating system to set up the business.
As a franchisee, you pay the franchiser a certain amount (royalties) from your franchise's profit. The average or typical royalty percentage in a franchise is 5 to 8 percent of volume, but these fees can range from a small traction of 1 to 50 percent or more of revenue, depending on the franchise.
