While businesses are in the process of actively seeking foreign employees, it is imperative that all the correct steps are taken to find and successfully bring an individual to Canada for employment. This article provides information on some of the most-used programs the Government of Canada offers to help employers in the hiring process.

Express Entry

Employers in Canada can hire Express Entry contenders to meet labour needs if they are not able to be fulfilled by Canadians or permanent residents. This program allows employers to have direct involvement in hiring pre-screened skilled foreign workers to meet the desired needs of their business.  There are three federal economic programs managed by Express Entry:

  • Canadian Experience Class: The Canadian Experience Class is for skilled workers who have Canadian work experience and who desire to become permanent residents.
  • Federal Skilled Worker: The Federal Skilled Worker Program is for skilled workers with foreign work experience who wish to immigrate to Canada permanently.
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program: The Federal Skilled Trades Program is for skilled workers who want to become permanent residents based on their qualifications in a skilled trade.
