Employers Have Access to More Online Information to Hire Workers Needed to Fill Labour Shortages

OTTAWA, ONTARIO- March 7, 2012) – Employers can now access more information online about Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) programs to hire permanent and temporary foreign workers, Minister Jason Kenney announced today.

In keeping with the government’s focus on the importance of immigration to Canada’s economy and growth, the CIC website has been redesigned to include a new section to guide employers to the most suitable program.

“The economy and job growth remain the number one priority of the Government,” said Minister Jason Kenney. “Labour shortages are becoming a growing problem in many regions, and this website will help employers access information that will help them hire permanent or temporary foreign workers when no Canadians are able to fill a position.”

Employers can learn the steps involved in hiring temporary foreign workers, helping to bring a worker to Canada permanently and hiring international students studying in Canada.

In addition to the enhanced website, the Department is reaching out directly to employers through public consultations.

“Immigration is becoming increasingly important to meeting our labour market needs,” said Minister Kenney. “I want to strengthen the partnership with employers to ensure our economic immigration program better meets the needs of our economy.”

This new website, a work in progress, builds on the success of other online tools for employers, such as the Employer’s Roadmap, available at http://www.credentials.gc.ca/employers/roadmap/index.asp
