The Government of Canada believes that foreign workers can help employers meet their labour needs when Canadians and permanent residents are not available. As part of this process, the government supports higher-skilled foreign workers based on their potential to become economically established in Canada and to assist employers to meet their skilled labour shortages. Employers who wish to hire skilled foreign workers and support their permanent resident visa application can make a job offer under Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Express Entry system. The job offer must meet the criteria of 1 of the listed economic immigration programs. These programs include:

Federal Skilled Workers Program (FSWP)

The employer must be offering a job for:

  • a higher-skilled position such as: management, professional, scientific, technical or trade occupations (National Occupational Classification (NOC), skill type 0, and skill levels A and B),
  • full-time hours (a minimum of 30 hours of work per week),
  • at least one year, and
  • a non-seasonal position

Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

The employer must be offering a job for:

  • an eligible skilled trade or technical occupation (NOC skill level B),
  • full-time hours (a minimum of 30 hours of work per week), and
  • at least one year.

Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

The employer must be offering a job for:

  • a higher-skilled position such as: management, professional, scientific, technical or trade occupations (National Occupational Classification (NOC), skill type 0, and skill levels A and B),
  • full-time hours (a minimum of 30 hours of work per week),
  • at least one year, and
  • a non-seasonal position.

Note: Foreign Temporary Workers working in Canada may be eligible for permanent residency, provided they meet IRCC requirements. For more information on the pathways to permanent residence for TFWs, Contact us.
