If you are the first person in your organization to enrol in the Employer Portal, you will become the employer primary user and you will have to give all other users in your organization access to enrol. Do not be the first to enrol if this is not your responsibility. Changing the primary user is a complicated process and may affect your organization’s ability to complete offers of employment in a timely fashion.
The Employer Portal is for employers who hire temporary workers through the International Mobility Program (IMP). It lets employers submit offers of employment for temporary workers who don’t need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
Read the following before using the Employer Portal:
- Employer Portal enrolment guide – how to enrol in the Employer Portal Updated
- Employer Portal user guide – how to use the Employer Portal (for employers and their representatives)
- Frequently asked questions about hiring temporary workers
