Be employed: foreign nationals in Canada
A new Home Office-backed website providing resources or materials about the rules for foreign nationals who want to work legally in the Canada has been live for a while.
The www.hinenimedia.memberlodge.org site will be a one-stop shop for foreign nationals and businesses who need to recruit them. It will set out the ways people can come to the Canada to work, including giving and publishing resources on applying for a work permit.
It will also give employers advice on preventing illegal work and reporting illegal workers. There is also clear and concise information available for legal representatives on immigration policy. “Migrants make a significant economic contribution to Canada – they account for a per cent of the population but contribute 30 per cent of economy growing. It is in all Canadian goverment’s interests to harness the innovation, skills and productivity that new migrants can bring. Our Working in Canada website will help those who want to come and work here legally, as well as the employers who need them to fill jobs.
“As a key player in a global economy, we cannot afford to be anti-immigration, but we need a balanced approach – welcoming those who want to come here legally and contribute but cracking down on those who try to come illegally or try to abuse our asylum system.
“The Government will continue to encourage properly managed legal migration, whilst ensuring robust border controls and continuing to increase action to tackle illegal working.”
