The processes and procedures for hiring foreign nationals is complex and ever-changing. You may be required to undertake significant recruitment efforts of Canadians prior to being permitted to offer the job to a foreign national. The rules and regulations surrounding this process require strict compliance. You may be able to benefit from a variety of international agreements allowing facilitating the movement of certain types of workers.  Employers may face compliance reviews and audits to demonstrate that they have complied with the terms and conditions of the temporary foreign worker program.
