HOW WORKVANTAGE CAN HELP YOU HIRE FOREIGN WORKERS IN CANADA

Workvantage is a licensed recruitment agency that works hand-in-hand with Canadian employers recruiting foreign workers with the purpose of filling labour shortages.

In addition to helping employers meet their labour needs, Workvantage works with Immigration Pros, a licensed team of Immigration Consultants who assist with the legal procedures involved with recruiting foreign workers.

Canadian employers recruiting foreign workers through Workvantage will benefit from assistance throughout each stage of the recruitment process, from finding the right candidates and evaluating applications, to managing all immigration documentation needed with the Canadian government, we will be there for you.

SEARCHING FOR FOREIGN WORKERS AND THE HIRING PROCESS

The process of recruiting foreign workers in Canada is very different from hiring locally. Depending on the province where you are hiring, there are different sets of criteria and requirements put in place by the government. This is done to ensure work is only given to foreign workers when a local workforce is unable to meet labour demands.

Step 1: Company assessment of staffing requirements

In order to reach a comprehensive understanding of the employer’s needs, Workvantage will talk to the staff to understand the job’s requirements and design a recruitment plan around it.

Step 2: Foreign worker recruitment through Workvantage

A recruitment process will begin, focused towards covering the employers’ labour needs. During this process, Workvantage will search for the best candidates for the job positions available.

Step 3: Candidate selection process

Workvantage’s recruitment team will sort through candidates available in our network, check their references, hold in-depth video interviews with potential candidates, and shortlist those who would make interesting candidates for employers.

Step 4: Candidate language evaluation (English and/or French)

This part of the process goes further than assessing if a candidate is capable of communicating in English and/or French. There are specific language testing requirements set in place by the government that may apply depending on the nature of the job or province. Workvantage will ensure the testing results are genuine, and that their skills reflect the candidate’s test results.

Step 5: Document verification

To ensure every candidate we select has the potential and the right credentials to work for you, Workvantage will verify that all documentation provided by the candidates is legitimate and up to date.

Step 6: Compilation of comprehensive individual dossiers

Once a candidate’s credentials and documentation have been verified, and they have passed the interview part of the process with Workvantage, we will create a file for each prospect, so that the employer has everything they need to verify a candidate’s qualifications first-hand.

Step 7: Share qualified candidates’ portfolios with the employer

Once a list of candidates has been shortlisted and verified, we will share the dossiers compiled with the employer, so that employers may have the freedom to select from the best profiles.

Step 8: Hold employer interviews with selected candidates

Workvantage’s recruitment team will sort through candidates available in our network, check their references, hold in-depth video interviews with potential candidates, and shortlist those who would make interesting candidates for employers.

Step 9: Send a job offer

Employers may send job offers and hire candidates they have selected. Workvantage will guide you to draft the job offer so that it complies with the government requirements to hire foreign workers in Canada.

GETTING APPROVAL FOR YOUR COMPANY
TO HIRE FOREIGN WORKERS

In the last quarter of 2021 alone, Statistics Canada reported that there were over 277,000 vacancies of jobs ranging from food and kitchen support staff to workers in the construction industry.

To address labor shortages across the provinces and territories, the Canadian government has created many different programs to facilitate Canadian employers to hire foreign workers. However, employers must meet certain requirements to obtain approval to recruit foreign workers, which will vary depending on different factors.

Workvantage will work in tandem with Immigration Pros to look at all of the options available for you to qualify under one of the work programs available so that you may meet the requirements for recruiting foreign workers.

Note that to hire foreign workers:

  • You would probably need an LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment)
  • You might recruit foreign workers in Canada if they already have an OWP (Open Work Permit)
  • You can hire foreign workers through an LMIA-based work permit
  • Canadian employers may benefit from hiring foreign workers through one of the temporary or permanent worker streams

Please note that every program and province or territory has different requirements for employers and employees alike. Normally, each province has its own provincial program for hiring foreign workers. One of the most common is the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). Consult the requirements for each program for further details.
