Webinar: Staffing Problems? Everything you need to know about hiring Foreign Workers
November 24, 2022 at 11:00am EST

Over the years, Canadian Employers in different industries have been facing serious labour shortages. According to an article posted by Huw Lloyd-Ellis from Queen’s University, the pandemic has exacerbated the situation. Labour market shortages have doubled during 2021 and 2022, compared to 2019. In other words, there is a scarcity of available workers and a plentiful supply of vacant jobs. Even an expected 2023 recession is unlikely to change the situation in terms of the labour shortages faced by Canadian employers, as the government’s goal in 2023 is to bring 447 055 new immigrants to the country (IRCC, 2022).

This dramatic increase in labour shortages has affected many sectors but mainly:
– The oil and mining sector
– The construction sector and technical services
– The food processing, manufacturing and agriculture sector

This has forced Canadian employers to look for different options to fulfill their company’s needs, and one of them is to hire foreign workers to ease labour shortages and promote business productivity. The Canadian government also opens new programs every year to support the foreign worker program as foreign workers tend to be well qualified, highly experienced and committed to long term employment.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

– The industries that are now hiring foreign workers
– Our experience facing previous recessions
– The eligibility and requirements to hire foreign workers
– The general process of hiring foreign workers
– The benefits for employers of hiring foreign workers
– The responsibilities of employers when hiring foreign workers
– Successful cases and how foreign workers contributed to a particular company’s growth
