Hiring Young, International Talent: LMIAs Not Required
Hiring international mobile youth is a good alternative to address your labour needs. The Canadian government has bilateral reciprocal agreements with countries around the world to allow exchange of youth to work and/or study abroad. There are three types of work permits for international young workers: Working Holiday Program (WHP), Young Professional (YP) and International Co-op.
Employment of People Under 15 Years of Age
Young employees play a major role in the tourism and hospitality industry. Sometimes a young person wants a part-time job in food service just to earn a bit of pocket money. The part-time job can lead to a lifetime attachment to the industry and start many young people on an exciting career path. However, employers who violate the rules for employing children may face penalties up to $10,000.
