Can foreign pilots get a work permit for a Canadian commercial airline upon the completion of their training in Canada?

  • $\begingroup$ It is certainly possible that anyone might get a work permit to do any work in Canada. Are you asking if there is some automatic grant of a work permit? $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 28, 2017 at 3:05
  • $\begingroup$ @DJClayworth I am asking specifically for "airline pilots" to work as an airline pilot upon getting my licenses and 1500 flight hours, what I mean is practically speaking why would an airline sponser a foregin pilot and cost itself time and money while they can hire Canadian citizens or permanent residents? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Because after some research i found out that H1B visa (work permit in the USA) is difficult to get, so i wanted to know what is the situation in Canada for hiring foregin pilots in terms of ease/possibility $\endgroup$
