The Temporary Foreign Worker Program allows Canadian employers temporary access to foreign workers when qualified Canadian or Permanent Resident workers are unavailable.
The Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) Program is labour market tested and requires employers to obtain a positive or neutral Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) so that a TFW's employment does not negatively impact the Canadian labour market.
As a result, access to the TFW Program responds to changes in the labour market. The TFW Program also aims to be the last resort for employers once all other avenues to address shortages have been exhausted.
The Program is comprised of four streams:
- High-wage, in which the wage offered is at or above the provincial/territorial median wage,
- Low-wage, in which the wage offered is below provincial/territorial median wage,
- Primary Agriculture which includes the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program,
- Global Talent Stream for in-demand Information and Communications Technology (ICT) / Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) occupations and unique and specialized talent.
