Canada penalizes employers violating the TFWP rules

Last year, Canada imposed fines totalling $2.7m on 194 employers for non-compliance with the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) rules. These rules include meeting Labour Market Impact Assessment requirements and keeping records for six years. Between April 2022 and March 2023, 116 employers faced penalties of $1.54m due to non-compliance. Penalties can go up to $100,000 per violation and reach $1m annually. The average fine increased to $28,836 in 2024. In 2023, compliance was observed in over 95% of the 2,100+ inspections carried out.
