Alberta's Employer Liaison Service
The governments of Canada and Alberta want Albertans to be first in line for available jobs in the province, to ensure Alberta's skilled workforce is supporting a thriving economy. To achieve this, we've partnered with the government of Canada to offer the Employer Liaison Service.
This service provides employers impacted by the new Temporary Foreign Worker Program's Refusal to Process list with information, tools, and hands on support to help connect with unemployed Albertans, including workers from untapped labour pools. Thousands of unemployed or marginally employed Albertans are skilled, experienced, trained and educated for these occupations and currently seeking employment.
We want to hear from you and we have a dedicated team to help. When you contact us, we will ask you some questions to find out why you were exploring the LMIA process and learn more about what efforts you have already made to recruit locally. Our team will provide you with a customized solution and connect you with service providers in your area that know of sources of labour you can consider.
You also may wish to read our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to familiarize yourself with this program and its services.
