What is the International Mobility Program?
This International Mobility Program (IMP) is an umbrella program for which allows Canadian employers to hire foreign workers without requiring a Labour Market Assessment (LMIA). The purpose of these programs is to advance Canada’s economic and cultural interests in order to keep Canada competitive in the global market. Contrasting to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program which issues Employer- Specific Work Permits, successful eligible applicants under IMP’s program streams will be instead issued Open Work Permits that can be either restricted or unrestricted. The program is operated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
