Labour recruitment

Learn about recruiting both in Canada and internationally.

As an Alberta employer, you should do everything possible to hire an Albertan or Canadian first. As long as you can show that bringing workers to Canada will not have a negative impact on the Canadian labour market, you can recruit temporary foreign workers (TFWs) to meet temporary labour challenges.

Find resources to guide you through the recruitment process, including step-by-step information about temporarily accessing skilled and semi-skilled labour, hiring Temporary Foreign Workers, and the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process.

Learn how to identify and assess education credentials obtained abroad.
