Green and Spiegel - An Immigration Law Firm

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program is a work permit category of last resort for employers who are unable to recruit qualified Canadians and Permanent Residents. The program uses a Labour Market Impact Assessment to make a determination about work permit approval and includes very detailed advertising and recruiting requirements as well as other compliance obligations. This difficult process has caused headaches and problems for Canadian employers for years, and without proper experience, can significantly setback their staffing needs

Green and Spiegel can assist you in making your application and can provide support for your advertising obligations, as well as your ongoing compliance obligations. Contact us today to get started.
