Canada has more than 100 programs to invite foreign nationals to live, work, study, and settle in the country. Most of these programs can be categorized under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and International Mobility Program. Here is the comparison of both programs according to different factors:
|Goals and intentions||The primary goal of TFWP is to hire foreign workers to meet the challenge of skills shortage.||IMP has been created for the promotion of economic, cultural, and social policy objectives. The program is used to invite foreign workers for strengthening relationships between Canada and global community by promoting sports, culture, arts, and religion.|
|LMIA requirement||Employers have to submit an LMIA requirement to invite immigrants under the TFWP. ESDC is responsible for LMIA, while IRCC for work permit application processing.||LMIA is not required to invite immigrants under this program.|
|Administration||ESDC administers the program but IRCC and ESDC jointly run the program.||IRCC leads and administers IMP|
|Wage||TFWP uses wage rather than NOC.||IMP does not depend on wage offered|
|Work permits||Work permits under this program are employer-specific.||Work permits under this program can be either open or employer-specific|
