Temporary Foreign Worker Program 2017Q4 Understanding Labour Market Impact Assessment statistics: This release displays quarterly Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) statistics related to positions, geographical location, occupations, sectors and foreign workers by country of origin. It is important to note that the decision to issue a work permit rests with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and that not all positions on a positive LMIA result in a work permit. As well, there may also be a time delay between the date the temporary foreign worker (TFW) obtains the work permit and the date they enter Canada. For these reasons, data provided in the LMIA statistics cannot be used to calculate the number of TFWs that have entered or will enter Canada. IRCC publishes annual statistics on the number of foreign workers who enter Canada in its Facts and Figures publication. These statistics are based on the number of work permits issued at ports of entry and encompass a variety of program streams beyond the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), such as temporary residents entering Canada to work, study or for humanitarian and compassionate reasons. 2017-11-30 2018-05-09 Employment and Social Development Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Economics and IndustryEducation and TrainingLabourLabour Market Impact AssessmentLMIAPositiveNegativeTemporary Foreign Worker PositionTFWPLocation of employmentOccupationsIndustriesEmployer Number of approved TFW positions by province/territoryCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_01_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions by province/territoryCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_01_f.csv Number of approved TFW positions by urban areaCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_02_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions by urban areaCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_02_f.csv Number of approved TFW positions by economic regionCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_03_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions by economic regionCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_03_f.csv Number of approved TFW positions by skill levelCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_04_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions by skill levelCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_04_f.csv Number of approved TFW positions by skill typeCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_05_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions by skill typeCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_05_f.csv Number of approved TFW positions by industryCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_06_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions by industryCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_06_f.csv Number of approved TFW positions for caregiversCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_08_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions for caregiversCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_08_f.csv Number of approved TFW positions under Primary AgricultureCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_09_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions under Primary AgricultureCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_09_f.csv Top countries according to number of approved TFW positionsCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_10_e.csv Top countries according to number of approved TFW positionsCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_10_f.csv Number of employers who received at least one positive or negative LMIACSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_11_e.csv Number of employers who received at least one positive or negative LMIACSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_11_f.csv GlossaryDOC http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/Glossary-TFWS-2008-2015.docx GlossaryDOC http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/Lexique-STET-2008-2015.docx Number of approved TFW positions by occupationsCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_07_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions by occupationsCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_07_f.csv Number of Requested TFW PositionsCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_12_e.csv Number of Requested TFW PositionsCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_12_f.csv Number of approved TFW positions by StreamCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_13_e.csv Number of approved TFW positions by StreamCSV http://www.edsc-esdc.gc.ca/ouvert-open/bca-seb/ae-ei/TFWP2017_Q4_Table_13_f.csv
