The program permits Canadian employers to respond to the areal shortage of workers by allowing them by hiring internationally while making sure that Canadian permanent residents and citizens and have the first opportunity to apply for open jobs. Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is required to be completed by employers looking to hire under the TFWP.
