A closed work permit restricts to work for a certain employer in a certain occupation for the validity of the work permit.
Recently, a client who is on a closed work permit with the above mentioned conditions secured a new job with the same employer in the same field but different job title from what was stated on her work permit. The job title on Canadian work Permit was HR Administrator and new job is HR Consultant.
Does she need a new work permit?
The answer: No, she does not need a new work permit. She would only need a new work permit if she changed employer or completely changed her occupation. For example leaving the HR field to become a plumber etc.
