Need a Job In Canada? The Canadian Government Announces New Temporary Foreign Workers Program!
Good News for workers that need a job in Canada. It seems like all your wishes have been granted. As of August 28th employers will be required to hire foreign workers who belong to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP). The potential job candidates must meet the requirements necessary to perform the job (of course) – but never before have Canadian employers been required to hire foreign workers. That is, until now!
In accordance with the new policy, if the Canadian Department of Labour finds that there are no Canadian Permanent Residents or Canadian Citizens “ready, willing, and able” to perform a certain job – an employer will be required to hire a foreign worker that applied through the TFWP job pool.
But how will I know what jobs to look for under the TFWP?
First of all, you should immediately inform your Registered Canadian Immigration Consultant that you wish to be entered into the TFWP pool, regardless if you believe you are qualified or not.
Secondly, in accordance with the TFWP policy, employers MUST advertise all open positions directly to the TFWP pool, as well as, two additional forms of recruitment.
What happens when I am matched to a job position?
⭐⭐⭐⭐High-Wage Scenario: Employers will be required to invite matching candidates to apply for the positions, within thirty days of the advertisement, if the foreign worker is rated four stars or above.
⭐⭐Low-Wage Scenario: Employers will be required to invite matching candidates to apply for the positions, within thirty days of the advertisement, if the foreign worker is rated two stars or above.
How long does this process take until I am in Canada?
If you are hired through the TFWP you fall under the Global Skills Act of June 12, 2017. That means your application for a Canadian Visa will be given PRIORITY. The Canadian Government will have your Canadian Visa ready in just two weeks. So pack your bags and get ready to move to Canada using the fastest visa program currently available!
