Foreign Worker Program

The federal government's Temporary Foreign Worker Program allows eligible foreign workers to work in Canada for an authorized period of time if employers can demonstrate that they are unable to find suitable Canadians/permanent residents to fill the jobs and that the entry of these workers will not have a negative impact on the Canadian labour market. Employers from all types of businesses can recruit foreign workers with a wide range of skills to meet temporary labour shortages.

Three departments: Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), Service Canada (the service delivery arm of Human Resources and Social Development Canada) and the Canada Border Services Agency - work together to manage and deliver the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

Employers interested in hiring temporary foreign workers are required to go through a specific process to bring them to Alberta. Several government departments are involved in that process and it is important to understand what roles the federal and provincial governments play in it. In general, the process includes the following steps:

  1. Employers must advertise the job opportunity to Canadians first.
  2. If there are no Canadians or permanent residents available for the job, the employer can recruit a qualified foreign worker.
  3. The employer can then make an offer of employment to the foreign worker.
  4. The employer then completes the application for a Labour Market Opinion.
  5. If the Labour Market Opinion is positive, the employer sends a copy to the foreign worker.
  6. The foreign worker then applies for a work permit in their country of residence (outside Canada).
  7. The foreign national must then prove that they meet the job and admission to Canada requirements.
