TFWP extends advertising requirement suspension

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) is extending the suspension of minimum advertising requirements for all positions in the primary agriculture sector by a year, until June 30, 2023.

Since January 12, 2022, the minimum advertising requirements for employers applying for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to hire temporary foreign workers in primary agriculture were suspended.

While employers are not required to meet TFWP minimum advertising requirements or submit proof with their LMIA application, the federal government stated in a media release that employers are still expected to continue efforts to recruit Canadians and permanent residents for the positions to be filled.
