What are the employer’s responsibilities in the process of recruiting temporary foreign workers (TFWs)?
The process of hiring temporary foreign workers involves a variety of administrative, legal and logistical steps that require specialized knowledge in laws and immigration, as well as a significant time investment over several months.
We recognize that managers in SMEs have scarce time to perform all their daily tasks. Job Alliance offers a completely turnkey foreign worker recruitment and integration service. This comprehensive service includes the vast majority of the tasks involved in hiring and bringing this foreign workforce to Canada, as described in the following table.

**Job Alliance will provide you with the worker’s specific housing needs of the worker, but
the employer is responsible to find a suitable rental location.
Although the Job Alliance team handles all steps of the process, we are always in constant contact with the employer to keep them apprised of our progress. In addition, if the employer wishes to be more closely involved in part of the process, it can do so freely.
Get peace of mind and trust the experts to help you with all of these steps. Your time is better invested elsewhere than in this process.
