How do I work in Canada under the IMP?
This process can either be initiated by the employer or by the foreign work permit that is under the IMP. In case an employer has a vacancy and there is a foreign worker that is under the IMP, they can hire. Contrary to IMP, the TFWP requires that for a foreign worker under IMP, they can generally speak, work and go to an employer of their choice. However this is not possible for every worker.
