Cannot find suitable employees for the position you are hiring within Canada? Would like to hire a Temporary Foreign Worker in your company? There are many things that employers must determine before attempting to hire a temporary foreign worker. One of those things is the wage you will be paying this temporary foreign worker. Let's take a look at how the wages are determined.
Canadians who wish to hire a temporary foreign worker must first establish a shortage of the labour or skill that they are looking for in Canada. There are many ways of doing so that I have discussed in other Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) related blogs. Once the shortage has been established, the employer gets the green signal to apply for a labour market impact assessment or an LMIA formerly known as a Labour Market Opinion (LMO). Apart from showing a shortage of skill within Canada, the LMIA application must prove the arrival of the foreign worker will have a positive or neutral effect on the Canadian market. One of the most important aspects of hiring a temporary foreign worker is to establish that you, as the employer, will adhere to federal and provincial standards of labour law and pay them with prevailing wages and benefits.
