How do Canadian Companies hire a temporary foreign worker?
There are 3 basic steps to hire a temporary foreign worker:
- Get a LMIA or submit an offer of employment
- Have the worker apply for a work permit
- Tell the worker what to expect from their application
Get a LMIA or submit an offer of employment
First, find out if you need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This assessment verifies that there is a need for the job you are offering and that there is no Canadian worker available to do it.
If you don’t need a LMIA, submit an offer of employment and pay the employer compliance fee using the Employer Portal. Provide the offer of employment number you receive to the worker you want to hire so they can apply for their work permit.
Have the worker apply for a work permit
Once you have a LMIA number or offer of employment number, send those details to the worker with the job offer. They need to use this information to apply for a work permit.
If you are exempt from the employer compliance process, send the worker the employment contract.
Tell the worker what to expect from their application
Tell the worker that they will receive a letter of introduction when their work permit has been approved. The actual work permit is issued by a border services officer at the port of entry when the worker arrives in Canada. If the worker is already in Canada and eligible to apply, the work permit will be emailed to them.
