Survey for the Temporary Foreign Worker Program

Good day,

As part of the commitments made in The Path Forward Plan for the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) Program, the TFW Program is currently conducting reviews of the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) service standards and processing fee. These reviews are being undertaken with a view to increasing the speed and efficiency of service standards, and to ensure the fee adequately reflects the costs of providing service.

As part of these reviews, we are inviting employers who applied to the program in the last three years to participate in an online survey about the service and the fee. The survey feedback will inform the development of an approach to setting service standards and the LMIA fee.

Participants have until October 26, 2018 to submit their responses.

The link to the survey is here:

Please note, the survey is designed for those using streams of the TFW Program other than Primary Agriculture Stream. Primary Agriculture stakeholders have been consulted on these same issues as part of the Primary Agriculture Review.
