Filling labour shortages
Canadian employers can hire temporary workers with specific skills, including live-in caregivers, to help fill labour shortages.
Each year, many foreign workers enter Canada to work temporarily. Temporary foreign workers can help Canadian employers fill labour and skill shortages. They can also transfer specialized skills and knowledge to Canadian workers.
You need a work permit for most temporary jobs in Canada.
