Employment

Benefits to your organization

The world is the Global Market. The best employees can quickly find employment in different countries like the USA, Australia, Gulf Region, Western European countries, or elsewhere. Canada should be the top country in the world by attracting international talents in various fields. In addition, to bringing international flair and diversity to your company, you can get hard-working and motivated employees who are eager to deserve their Canadian Permanent Residency. These employees would receive employer-specific work permits, usually on two-year periods. Work permits can be extended indefinitely.  

Our firm:

International workers have been essential to many industries in Canada, such as food production, hospitality, or transportation, for over 50 years. These workers fill vacant positions when Canadians can’t be found. During COVID-19, access to skilled international labor has become more complicated. Positions include seasonal as well as year-round jobs.

Benefits of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program Canada FAQs

We use mostly LMIA stream to support Permanent Residency if possible and in case of the skilled positions (NOC 0, A or B). With this stream, Work Permit will have two-year validity. Most of the other streams support two-year work permits as well.

Less likely. They will need another ‘sponsor’ willing to go through the LMIA and Work Permit process. A work permit is employer-specific, location-specific and occupation-specific. Our company provides 18 months ‘free replacement guarantee’. Please ask us for details.

Wages offered to temporary foreign workers should be similar to wages paid to Canadian and permanent resident employees hired for the same job and work location and with similar skills and years of experience. For this program, employers must pay the prevailing wage, which is defined as higher of 

  1. Median wage on the Job Bank: https://www.jobbank.gc.ca/trend-analysis/search-wages
  2. The average wage you are paying your current employees 

Consequently, you will need to adjust foreign workers’ rate of pay as per Job Bank median rate of pay

PR LMIA Stream supporting skilled occupations doesn’t require an employer to pay for accommodation or transportation. In the case of Low-wage LMIAs, you would need to pay those expenses.

Your costs will be the same or less than hiring a foreign worker. In addition to $1,000 government fee, there is our recruitment fee as well. We see that as an investment with a high rate of return rather than expenses.

You would get an internationally trained employee with excellent English Language skills, extensive work experience, and a professional work ethic. Moreover, these employees will work very hard for you, trying to stay in Canada longer and apply for their Permanent Residency. Don’t be confused with the program’s name: ‘Temporary Foreign Program.’ You can extend their work permits indefinitely and most of them will stay in Canada permanently. They have several different Permanent Residency pathways.

These workers come motivated and ‘hungry’ for progress. Our great country has been built on
these immigrants’ values and their hard work.
Yes, they can. They can extend work permits indefinitely. You would need another LMIA application, and they would be able to extend their stay.
Temporary Foreign Workers have the same rights and responsibilities as Canadians and PRs.
Therefore, you don’t have to treat them differently. All Provincial Labour Laws applicable to other employees are also applicable to them.
Your offer of employment must stay full time, min of 30h per week or more.

There is a probation period in the unlikely case they don’t work out; they would need to receive the same benefits such as health, overtime, vacation etc. You would need to adjust the median rate of pay once every 12 months to reflect the median rate of pay for specific occupation:

Job duties of Temporary Foreign Worker are clearly stated in the Employment Offer. You are not allowed to change them significantly. Any changes of the Employment status have to be reported to Service Canada (Termination letter, lack of Working hours etc)
If your TWF does not meet your standards, please keep written records of any training, verbal warnings, primarily written warnings or similar. Do not terminate their employment without two written signs for the exact cause and precise records of re-training. Let us or Service Canada know regarding termination.
