Work in Canada

To work in Canada, most foreign workers need to obtain a work permit before they can work in Canada.

Can I apply for a work permit to Canada simultaneously even though I am in the express entry pool ?

Hi, I live in Bombay and I have applied to the EE program, I don't have an ITA yet. However, I was wondering if I would apply for a work visa just to secure a visa.

Work permit applications can be independent of PR applications. If you are qualified to apply for a work permit, you can obtain one independently of your permanent resident application. Whether or not you qualify is another story. You are advised to contact an RCIC for assessment and consultation to see if you are eligible.
