Program delivery update: New instructions under the International Mobility Program for foreign worker protection in British Columbia – May 4, 2018

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

Foreign workers in British Columbia (B.C.) who face a real and substantial risk of abuse as a result of potential employer non-compliance with applicable federal laws (for example, the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act [IRPA] and its Regulations) or provincial laws (for example, B.C.’s Employment Standards Act) may be eligible to receive a work permit that is exempt from the Labour Market Impact Assessment process.

This measure is available to all foreign nationals in B.C. who hold an employer-specific work permit for an employer located in B.C. or who are authorized to work without a work permit as per the IRPA and itsRegulations.
