Work permits under this program include both high-wage and low-wage positions and include some specific temporary foreign worker employment programs in agriculture, caregiving and global talent.
in the following categories: the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP)
and the International Mobility Program (IMP)
. A sub-category of the IMP Program also included is the Post Graduate Work Permit Program
which grants temporary worker rights upon successful completion of a Canadian designated learning institute credential.
