Each year, Canada receives close to 180,000 temporary workers who come for a specific period of time to meet the country's labor needs.
Most of the foreign labor is hired by the agricultural sector through agreements and treaties that Canada has with several nations.
In order to work in Canada, a foreign national must have a legalized job offer from the Department of Human Resources, known as the Department of Human Resources. LMIA (Labour Market Opinion).
Canadian employers must apply for this permit in order to provide the opportunity for a foreign national to work legally.
However, there are other professions that do not require this permit because they are considered high demand jobs in the country and therefore employers need to hire workers urgently.
Similarly, treaties such as the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) CCFT (Canada, Chile Free Trade Agreement) allow the entry of certain professionals without the need for a concept from the Human Resources Department.
