How do I hire a temporary foreign worker?

There are 3 basic steps to hire a temporary foreign worker:

  1. Get an LMIA or submit an offer of employment
  2. Have the worker apply for a work permit
  3. Tell the worker what to expect from their application

What is an open work permit?

An open work permit is a work permit that is not job-specific. Because it is not job-specific, you will not need the following when you apply for your work permit:

  • a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada; or
  • proof that an employer has submitted an offer of employment through the Employer Portal and paid the employer compliance fee.

In most cases, you will have to pay the open work permit holder fee at the same time that you pay the work permit fee. Check the fee list for the most up-to-date application fees.

How can I find out about jobs in Canada?

You can find out about jobs in Canada through the Working in Canada tool, labor market information and job banks.
