The Temporary Foreign Worker Manual (Free)

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) Manual is intended to assist Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC)/Service Canada staff in the assessment of labour market impact assessment (LMIA) applications. The Manual is a staff tool that contains information on the legislation, policies and directives which guide the decision making process for issuing an LMIA.

Since 2012, ESDC has announced that the TFWP Manual will soon be available to the public. It to date has not done this, partially because the TFWP Manual at this point consists of numerous separate documents cobbled together.
