Temporary Foreign workers

Temporary foreign worker programs are typically seen as short-term solutions shortages of regional or occupational labour. During the past decade, Canadian regions experienced unequal economic growth and some suffered from significant excess labour demand. The Canadian temporary foreign worker program was thus expanded and conditions to access it made easier.


The applicants are required less education in their trades and a lower language level. With the support from employers in Canada, it is easier for them to get worker permits.

  • Agricultural service contractors, farm supervisors

  • General Farm Workers

  • Fish and seafood plant workers

A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada may need to get before hiring a foreign worker. A positive LMIA will show that there is a need for a foreign worker to fill the job. It will also show that no Canadian worker or permanent resident is available to do the job. A positive LMIA is sometimes called a confirmation letter.

If the employer needs an LMIA, they must apply for one. Once an employer gets the LMIA, the worker can apply for a work permit.

To apply for a work permit, a worker needs

  • job offer letter

  • contract

  • copy of the LMIA

  • LMIA number
