Temporary Foreign Worker Program


The Temporary Foreign Employees Program (TFWP) was established in 1973 and exists to meet labor shortages in Canada when Canadian and permanent resident workers are not available. The program expanded from being limited only to agricultural workers and live-in caregivers, to include low-skilled and high-skilled workers after 2002. Before issuing you a work permit, your potential employer may require a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). ) formerly known as LMO. Some jobs do not require an LMIA.
