The only thing that will be different for a person on a work permit is that their SIN number will start with 9 and it will have an expiry date.  Everything else is the same.

One more issue maybe with renting.  Make sure when you rent a place and do your move-in walk through that all damages are listed on the walk through report and you get a copy of that.  Also take pictures.  That way they can not blame you for damages when you move out if they were already there when you moved in.  Alberta landlords sometimes like to play tricks to keep your damage deposit.  Also when you do the move-out walk through, do not sign the report if it lists any damages you did not cause.

Also be vary of contracts and signing up for things.  For example, there are people who will offer you a free newspaper for a month but they actually subscribe you do it and before you know it, you will have a bill.  Also don't tell your SIN number to just anybody.  You need it for tax purposes and employment and the bank but you shouldn't give it to anybody else.
