Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP)
The TFWP is intended to help Canadian employers recruit foreign workers in response to labour market shortages.
TFWP is made up of four streams: High-skilled workers, Low-skilled workers, the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program(Agri-Food Pilot), and the Live-In Caregiver Program.
Foreign workers must have an approved job offer and a work permit before arriving in Canada under the TFWP.
IRCC works with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) to ensure foreign workers do not take jobs for which Canadian citizens or permanent residents are available. Canadian employers intending to hire a foreign worker must obtain prior approval. This is done by applying for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
We at 5 River Immigration Services helps Skilled Worker/ Labourers (job seeker) and employers in the recruitment process for securing favourable LMIAs and applying for Canada work permits and related Canada visa(s).
