Foreign Labour: Advantages to Employers

For employers who have been unable to recruit Canadian citizens or permanent residents for job openings, the Temporary Foreign Worker Program makes it possible to hire workers from abroad. Employers might also find a qualified foreign worker already in Canada, such as a foreign worker who is about to complete a job contract with another employer or a foreign national holding an open work permit that allows the employee to work for any employer in Canada.  The Immigration Depot will assist your company throughout the entire immigration process. We will propose the most suitable way of bringing foreign workers into Canada. This could be through the Foreign Worker Program (Temporary Work Visa) or a Provincial Immigrant Nominee Program. Our certified Consultant will provide your company with all legal information regarding requirements for the hiring of a foreign worker such as: choosing the National Occupation Classification (NOC), wage rates, transportation, and accommodation responsibilities.  We assist and represent your company before Service Canada in order to obtain the approval for you to hire foreign workers.

This process involves:

Fulfilling Service Canada advertising and other requirements: these requirements vary from province to province. We will provide you with all the information relevant to your province. Entirely up to your choosing, we can guide you through the process or we can advertise for you through the Job Bank or other alternate recruitment channels.  

All attempts to hire foreign workers are subject to a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). We can assist you through this process. We advertise the jobs in question and assist in providing proof that you are unable to find qualified Canadian workers.We will assist you in submitting an HRSDC Foreign Worker Application for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to the Service Canada Center responsible for your area. Our immigration staff can do this on your company‚Äôs behalf in order to ensure minimal delays. After the positive LMIA has been issued, we will send a copy of the confirmation letter to recruitment partners abroad. This will be submitted along with the prospective foreign worker's documentation to the Canadian Consulate in order to obtain their visas. The foreign worker's that you select will submit their application for the Canadian work visa.  We also provide the selected candidates with a comprehensive consultation on how to obtain their permanent residence in Canada (if applicable). The prospect of obtaining permanent residence enforces their commitment and loyalty to your company. Foreign workers will put in more effort to improve their language skills and acquire any complementary skills needed to meet immigration requirements.
