New measures have been introduced for foreign workers in Canada and Canadian employers who are hiring them.
Read about these changes and how they might affect you.
If you are an employer, there are several programs you can use to:
- hire a foreign worker,
- offer a full-time job to support a skilled worker’s immigration to Canada, or
- offer a paid internship to a permanent resident or a new Canadian citizen.
