Hiring a Temporary Foreign Worker for a Low-Wage position

Similar to the High-Wage LMIA Program, the Temporary Foreign Worker Program should be used only when there is a short-term skill and labour shortage and no Canadians or permanent residents can do the job.

To hire a temporary foreign worker you require a Labour Market Impact Assessment

There are certain prerequisites needed to file a Labour Market Impact Assessment

  • Determine if you truly need one
  • Ensure there will not be a "Refusal to Process" for your LMIA application
  • Verify the correct stream you want to apply for
