Advertising Requirements Relaxed for Certain Foreign Workers
November 23, 2006

Service Canada has released new lists of occupations which have been designated as “under pressure”.

Employers wishing to hire foreign workers for occupations that appear on a regional “under pressure” list only have to carry out minimal advertising, rather than the more comprehensive recruitment efforts normally required under the Foreign Worker Program. Employers must, however, still satisfy all of the other Foreign Worker Program criteria.
