Hiring Foreign Workers in Canada
Information for Canadian companies seeking to hire foreign workers to fill skills and labour shortages for their business.
When the national labour supply in Canada isn't sufficiently trained, seasoned, or found appropriately to meet up with the labour requirements of employers in certain industry segments or segments, Canadian employers must look to hire foreign talent to meet these obligations. Sometimes, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada can govern the entry of a foreign employee to the Canadian labour market through the restricted International Mobility Program.
But most employers and foreign workers do not meet the limited scope of the International Mobility Program and has to utilize the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) when they are seeking to hire foreign talent for long term positions. The TFWP is governed and managed by Service Canada, concurrently Called ESDC (Employment and Social Development Canada).
In the CIVS employment division, we help Canadian companies from all industries browse the intricacies of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to recruit and hire skilled foreign workers to fill labour shortages within their organization. We let you concentrate on your business while we locate the ability and complete the paperwork. We've got expansive international networks to recruit overseas talent and have qualified workers on standby, seeking the right company, job, and chance.
The aims of the program created by Service Canada in relation to Canada's immigration policy using IRCC, are to enable employers to get foreign workers and foreign talent when they can't locate the labour domestically with Canadians/PRs.
An LMIA stands for Labour Market Impact Assessment. It's a review of an employer's application to hire a foreign worker performed by Service Canada to guarantee that the employer seeking to employ a foreign worker has produced a genuine job offer and the employment of the foreign worker will not negatively affect the Canadian labor market.
In case a favorable LMIA is issued by Service Canada for your company, then the overseas employee may apply for a work permit.
Why is an LMIA Required?
Canada needs an LMIA to substantiate that the job offer by the company is actual and hiring the foreign worker is not going to have a negative impact on the Canadian labour market. It's to protect Canadian jobs and also to make sure that Canadians/PRs have the opportunity to fill empty positions.
In plain English, it is a method to prevent labour fraud for immigration functions while ensuring that foreign workers aren't"stealing jobs" out of Canadians/PRs.
