Canada TFWP
This move has been facilitated with changes made in the Temporary Foreign Worker Program

The change in TFWP helps employers of Canada hire workers from overseas without the requirement for application towards Canadian residency. Useful measures were introduced to ensure that the employers hire genuine foreign workers when they cannot find workers in the domestic market. Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) announced another set of measures on July 31st, which have been made effective immediately. Any employer who wishes to hire foreign workers needs to obtain Labour Market Opinion (LMO) within the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP). Starting from this month, employers need to pay processing pay for each and every position while requesting for LMO.

The language requirements for an LMO application are set by the employer based on the available position. The employer has to prove that special requirement for languages other than English or French. The LMO application will be rejected when the Service Canada Office determines that there is no requirement for such language. Employers need to advertise for the vacancy through approved channels. They have to advertise the vacancy of a position for a period of 4 weeks. The advertisement also needs to include salary of the high skilled worker positions.

This program is highly useful for foreign workers who want to start working as soon as arrive in Canada. Minister of Human affairs and Skills Development, Diane Finley said that Canadians have to be given the first priority while recruiting workers in different regions and sectors. He also said the main purpose of the TFWP program is to assist the labour market in filling up the acute and genuine labour needs. He stated that, they have been reviewing the program in order to ensure that all the requirements are met.
