Employing Foreign Workers Seminar

October 19, 2016 | Paul E. Brace, Eamonn J. Flaherty | Markham

Canadian companies compete for talent on a global basis.  At a recent tech company forum, leaders of four prominent companies identified the recruitment of talent as one of their top priorities and all expressed concern over the challenges of navigating through Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program.  Problems are also encountered with short-term entry for consulting, training and after-sale service.

This program covers:

  • When a Canadian employer is required to obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
  • Exemptions from the LMIA requirement for NAFTA professionals and others
  • Key requirements in the LMIA process including acceptable forms of advertising, transition plans and meeting the “prevailing wage” requirements
  • Work Permit application procedures – visa post vs. port of entry
  • Special cases of short term entry, e.g. installation, warranty repair and other “after-sale” services provided by a foreign supplier
  • Requirements to obtain a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) and electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

This program is aimed at Human Resources specialists and others responsible for recruiting talent for Canadian companies and anyone dealing with foreign suppliers who need to send personnel to Canada.
