Program delivery update – December 16, 2016

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

Public list of employers who have been non-compliant now available


New program delivery instructions (PDIs) have been developed that outline the process that should be followed when an employer has been considered non-compliant with regulations related to employing a foreign worker.

These PDIs are targeted toward International Mobility Program processing officers (including Canada Border Services Agency officers), Case Management Branch officers, Communications Branch officials, and Employment and Social Development Canada officials. These PDIs provide information about the process, roles and responsibilities, and work permit processing and issuance impacts associated with the publication of a Temporary Foreign Worker Program or International Mobility Program employer’s information on a public list in the event of a determination of non-compliance with regulatory conditions in regard to employing a foreign worker.

The procedure flowchart for assessing foreign workers has been updated to include the steps officers must take to ensure that an employer is eligible to hire a foreign worker.

New Labour Market Impact Assessment exemption codes C16, C14, A71, A75 and C23 have been updated.

Employer compliance regime information has been updated on existing foreign worker pages.
