About Temporary Foreign Worker Program
The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) allows Canadian employers to hire foreign nationals to fill temporary labour and skill shortages when qualified Canadian citizens or permanent residents are not available.
Work permits issued under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program must be based on a positive or neutral Labour Market Impact Assessment issued by Employment and Social Development Canada (Service Canada).
