Employment Standards

Foreign Worker Recruitment

Employer Registration Information

All employers wanting to recruit foreign workers, other than Manitoba Provincial Nominees, in Manitoba will first be required to register with Employment Standards. This requirement results from the Worker Recruitment and Protection Act, which improves protections for foreign workers.

Foreign Worker Recruitment Licence Information

A licence is required from Employment Standards for persons engaging in foreign worker recruitment in Manitoba under the Worker Recruitment and Protection Act.  This Act provides protections for foreign workers and sets out the obligations that recruiters must meet to be approved for a license in Manitoba.
