This seems like an easy question to answer, but can be more complicated. There are different kinds of work permits and depending on what kind of work permit it is, your documents will reflect that. If the work permit is job specific, and there are specific requirements to meet that job as required by the job itself and/or immigration you will have to prove those things. Generally you will have to prove your identity, education and training including previous job experience. You will have to prove your are admissible to Canada and for some jobs you may need to do a medical. If you are coming on an open work permit, for example through the Working Holiday (International Experience program) as as the spouse or dependent of a worker or student in Canada, you generally just have to demonstrate admissibility, and relationship to the work permit or study permit holder. Some jobs require an LMIA (the Canadian employer has to demonstrate there are no Canadians or permanent residents for the position) and some jobs are LMIA exempt but fall under certain categories and the work permit holder has to meet those eligibility requirements. The best advice I can give to make sure you you talk to someone who is qualified to provide a proper assessment and advice. The Canadian Government website provides good information but there are often nuances that can be missed or not known.
