Employer Portal

Sign in trouble

The Employer Portal is for employers who hire temporary workers through the International Mobility Program (IMP). It lets employers submit offers of employment for temporary workers who don’t need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Some employers don’t need to submit an offer of employment in the Employer Portal or pay the employer compliance fee. Find out if you’re exempt.

Since July 31, 2023, you need to set up multi-factor authentication if you’re

  • creating an account using GCKey
