- You don’t need to worry about getting an LMO, finding Temporary Foreign Workers, coordinating your interviews with them, take care of their paperwork for a Visa or Work Permit, explaining taxes and cost of living, securing housing, getting them a SIN number and Provincial Health Care, etc. We coordinate all of it and from beginning to end, and do most of it for you.
- Throughout the process, we are in close communication with you to make this a seamless process.
- We look after both the big picture and the details, provide you with timely information, report back on status and coordinate with you, your personnel and your new Temporary Foreign Workers at all times, so that each step is clear and all parties involved are on the same page.
- Will your workers need to have a Class 1 Drivers License in Alberta? Do they need to have 3 or more years of experience in your industry? What kind of education must they have? What about ability to use certain equipment, software or tools? Will they need to obtain a certification in Canada?
- We work with you to clearly define what you need so that our Recruitment and Selection processes give you the employees you need, for the results you need.
- We develop with you complete, clear, detailed Job Descriptions that we later turn into very specific Job Orders for our Recruiters, so that they can look for the profile you need. Our Job Orders include Duties (with video/pictures of the Job), Qualifications, Skills, Mandatory Requirements, Desirable Requirements, Education and Certification Requirements, Language Specs, and any other aspects needed to describe what you need.
- We then use our experience, resources and network in Mexico to find those employees that best fit the desired profile. We recruit on spec, so that you can select on spec.
- When it’s time, representatives from your company will fly to Mexico to meet a group of pre-screened, qualified candidates that meet your desired profile.
- We will present a group of about twice (or more) as many candidates as you require.
- Our personnel in Mexico will be with your company representatives every step of the way, from airport pick up to conclusion of the recruitment trip and departure to Canada.
- Before the trip, you’ll get a detailed itinerary: flights, hotels, interviews and skill tests schedule, candidates to be interviewed, etc.
- The Candidates will know beforehand the details they need: Job Title, Duties, Requirements, Location, Wages, Taxes and Living Expenses, Requirements, and more. You will be able to interview and skill-test each candidate (within reason, cost of skill test is included in our fee).
- By the end of the trip, your representatives should have a list of selected workers that fit the desired profile.
- As an additional service, we have built solutions now available to Canadian Employers to conduct some training of selected workers in Mexico, even before they come to Canada.
- For example, an employer may decide to select a worker based on very strong skills and experience, but might want the worker to strengthen his or her command of English before coming to Canada.
- While the worker’s Visa applications is processed, he/she can participate in an English Training Program specifically aimed at developing the vocabulary and skills most needed on the Job to be performed in Canada.
- We also have expanding alliances with Certifying and Training organisations both in Canada and Mexico, so that processing times can be taken advantage of to provide pre-certification, training and skill development even before the workers start working for you.
- Selected workers require a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) that is applied for at the Embassy of Canada in Mexico City as part of this process.
- Once the TRV is obtained, the worker is scheduled to fly to Canada as programmed with the employer; the Work Permit is issued at the port of entry (Airport) by a Citizenship and Immigration Officer.
- After the selected Temporary Foreign Workers start working, we also keep track of the expiration dates on their Work Permits and when to start the process for their renewal. Overseen by our retained Immigration Law firm, we take the necessary steps for the renewal process as agreed with the employer.
- In coordination with our Mexico Team, our Administration and Settlement & Integration departments in Canada define with the employer an arrival date for the workers that have already obtained a Temporary Resident Visa. Other details (advance, housing, orientation, drivers licensing, etc) are also coordinated by them beforehand.
- We purchase the workers’ airplane ticket from Mexico to Canada, coordinate their departure, pick them up at the airport upon arrival, verify their Work Permit was correctly issued, and drop them off at their initial accommodations.
- While the workers are getting ready to travel, our Settlement & Integration department works to find suitable housing for them.
- We work with Property Management companies and individual landlords to secure proper housing for your workers. In principle, we look for short term rental properties (6 months) that are in good conditions, affordable, furnished, include utilities, can be shared, where each worker has his / her own bedroom, and which are close to their place of work with quick access to Public Transit.
- We provide this service with two objectives. First, to facilitate the integration of the workers with the employer, so that they can be productive from the start. Second, to ease the transition of workers to Canada, so that they have one of their main concerns (housing) addressed even prior to their arrival.
- The lease/rental agreement is strictly between worker and landlord. They pay the landlord directly, and are solely responsible for their lease. We are not intermediaries nor benefit in any way from it.
- The day after their arrival, our Settlement & Integration Team drives the workers to Service Canada so that they can obtain a Social Insurance (SIN) Number, Then, they help them to obtain a Provincial Health Care number and to open a Bank Account.
- They then receive an Orientation Session and, if needed, start training to obtain their Drivers License. More information on this is available in the sections included in the menu to your left.
- Some workers are required to drive a vehicle in Canada as part of their Job.
- We have partnered with companies in Canada that specialize in helping Temporary Foreign Workers obtain their Drivers License in Canada.
- For example, we partner with FWLS in Calgary, Alberta. A Long-Haul Truck Driver coming to work in Canada and based in Alberta must obtain a Class 1 Drivers License. Before arrival to Canada, this vendor will contact the Driver and provide him with training material for study while still in Mexico.; It will also verify and translate the necessary documents for the Driver to apply for a License upon arrival. Once the Driver arrives in Canada, the vendor will help and train him throughout the process of passing first the Class 7 exam, then the Class 5 Road Test, the Air Break course and finally the Class 1 Exam and Road Test.
- Photo-copying all key Worker documents. Although copies of most documents have already been made and are kept in Mexico by our offices, some key documents (Work Permit, Passport) are issued or stamped at the port of entry.
- Review with workers the relevant information on obtaining SIN and Provincial Health Care numbers, opening a Bank account, City Transit, Housing, Wages, Deductions and Advance, immediate work schedule, etc.
- Answer common questions (i.e. Cell phones, Utilities, Grocery Shopping, etc.)
- Offer continued assistance throughout their term, and provide them with contact information to the assigned members of our Settlement and Integration Department.
- Our commitment to our clients, or to the workers, does not end with their arrival to Canada.
- We track when their Work Permits will expire and they need to be renewed.
- We assist you -and them- with common questions and matters, like path towards promotion, or towards applying for Permanent Residence (if qualified), and many more.
- We are there for you and we are there for them.
