Hi Portia

Section 30 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act states:

30.(1) A foreign national may not work or study in Canada unless authorized to do so under this Act.

Section 2 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations define "work" as follows:

“work” means an activity for which wages are paid or commission is earned, or that is in direct competition with the activities of Canadian citizens or permanent residents in the Canadian labour market.

The second part of the above definition includes unpaid activity.

Without going into the specifics of your particular situation, a foreign national generally requires a work permit for any activity for which wages are normally paid, regardless of whether or not wages are in fact paid, unless there is a regulatory or statutory exemption.
