Canada Allows Temporary Foreign Worker
The Government of Canada has granted an exception for Microsoft from the new rules and permits the firm to bring indefinite number of non-permanent overseas employees to British Columbia as trainees, eliminating the need of searching Canadians to plug the skill gap.

According to the notice released by the CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada), overseas workers will now receive a specialized training in a new human resources development centre in the province. Now, the Microsoft is not required to undergo LMIA (labour market impact assessment), which is a rigorous procedure that necessitates to find Canadians to fill the vacancies.

The exception is issued in accordance with the federal government of the province that grants a pass to firms that gain the province authorization. The notice said that the new development and training center will focus on software and engineering stream and will give 400 jobs by means of paid internships for long-term workers and students of Canada. It also allows the entry of foreign workers into 18-month rotational training positions.

The notice said that international employees will be provided with a two-year Canada work permit that allows them to reside in the country till they are moved to a new position by Microsoft.

A spokesperson of CIC, Sonia Lesage stated in an email that the foreign trainees will enter the country under the International Mobility Program, while other overseas nationals would be subjected to all regular rules of the International Mobility Program (IMP) or Temporary Foreign Worker Program depending on their situation.
