Candidates from the High-Wage and Global Talent Stream, which is run via Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), can now work in Canada for three years instead of two to assist businesses caught in labour scarcity bind. In addition, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) doubled the validity of a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from 9 to 18 months. Moreover, all businesses will be able to hire up to 20 percent of their workforce through the low-wage TFWP channel until further notice.
