Temporary Resident Visas and Employees in Canada

A temporary resident visa (TRV) is an official document issued by a visa office and placed in an employee’s passport to indicate they have met the requirements needed for admission into Canada as a temporary resident. A TRV is only issued to a foreign national where the Government of Canada is satisfied that the individual will leave Canada after the end of the period of time they are authorized to remain here.

Employer Obligations Towards Temporary Workers 

Employers who are hiring temporary workers have various responsibilities including:

  • Ensuring the temporary workers have their work permit;
  • Helping the temporary workers obtain any other documentation required to work in Canada;
  • Ensuring the temporary workers follow the conditions and time limits outlined on their work permit;
  • Complying with employment legislation, including keeping the workplace safe and free of harassment, violence, and abuse;
  • Meeting their legal and other commitments towards the temporary workers with respect to wages and working conditions.
