About the process

The International Mobility Program lets you (the employer) hire a temporary worker without a Labour Market Impact Assessment (lmia).

In most cases, you’ll have to submit an offer of employment through the Employer Portal.

After your part is done, the temporary foreign worker must apply for a work permit.

Once your temporary foreign worker arrives, there are certain conditions and responsibilities that you must meet. If you don’t, you could be issued a penalty.

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (tfwp) is for hiring foreign workers who need an lmia. If you’re hiring a temporary foreign worker through the tfwp, find out more about that process.
