The TFW Program - An Overview of the Application Process
The first step required in the application process requires documentation of previous recruitment efforts. Collect all relevant information that supports your unsuccessful attempts to recruit qualified Canadian citizens for the job position(s) in question. This includes copies of all ads placed, web postings, job fair involvement, etc. Ensure you have a copy of a job description, number of applications received, number of applicants reviewed, number of Canadians hired, etc.
Complete the FOREIGN WORKER APPLICATION – APPLICATION FOR A LABOUR MARKET OPINION (LMO)
Complete an EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT
Compile all relevant information collected in Steps 1 through 3 and send to Service Canada. Service Canada will assess your application and forward the results by mail or fax upon completion.
If the assessment is positive, a copy of Service Canada's confirmation letter must be sent to your foreign worker.
An application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for a work permit must be completed by your foreign worker.
The foreign worker comes to Ontario.
Upon arrival in Ontario, it is the employer's responsibility to confirm that a foreign worker has adequate housing. Additionally, an employer must also ensure that the foreign worker has proper work permits and documentation, medical insurance coverage, coverage under WSIB, and that the worker obtains their Social Insurance Number.
