The answer depends on the citizenship of the foreign worker.
Some foreign nationals require an eTA or visitor visa to be authorized to travel to Canada. Therefore, foreign workers from eTA or visa-required countries will need this document in addition to the work permit.
A foreign worker who applies for a work permit from outside of Canada (meaning at an embassy or consulate) will be issued an eTA or Temporary Resident Visa at the same time as the work permit.
