Frequently Asked Questions
We are a large business located in Fraser Valley, BC. Every year we bring workers in to help with our business. Is there a way to stream line our inevitable applications to make it fast, easy and reliable?
Must depends on the occupations for which you are hiring. Employers often need to obtain a labour market impact assessment (LMIA) before making a job offer to a foreign worker. If you will need multiple workers, you can request an LMIA for multiple positions and it is not necessary to have identified all workers when you apply for the LMIA. If you are hiring in the agriculture or tech industries, you can take advantage of various programs which will streamline the hiring process somewhat.
A worker of mine wants to do apply for a BC Provoncial Nominee Program nomination. He said there is a cost for the application that the employer must pay. He is a great worker and I would be happy to do so. I looked online and cannot see any such information. Can an employee pay or is it restricted to employers paying?
An employer is note required to pay the fees associated with the BC Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). What you will need to do is extend to the employee an offer of full-time, interterminate employment and be willing to provide information and documents to the PNP in support of the job offer.
