Important Information
This is not a legal document. For legal information, consult the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Regulations.

For contact information and details on how to hire a temporary foreign worker in the province of Quebec.

Employers who would like a permanent solution to their long-term skill-shortage needs can consult their provincial or territorial governments for information on programs designed to facilitate the entry of foreign workers as permanent residents, or refer to CIC’s website concerning the Skilled Worker Class.

Introduction
The federal government’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program allows eligible foreign workers to work in Canada for an authorized period of time if employers can demonstrate that they are unable to find suitable Canadians/permanent residents to fill the jobs and that the entry of these workers will not have a negative impact on the Canadian labour market. Employers from all types of businesses can recruit foreign workers with a wide range of skills to meet temporary labour shortages.

Three departments: Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), Service Canada (the service delivery arm of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada) and the Canada Border Services Agency – work together to manage and deliver the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.
