Immigration compliance is now at the forefront of the government’s agenda. Since 2011, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (now Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada or IRCC), along with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), has put measures into place that ensure foreign nationals and Canadian employers are adhering to the specific conditions imposed on each party. For employers, this means paying fair wages, ensuring safe and healthy work conditions, and upholding the terms of the original employment agreement. For foreign workers, compliance means abiding by the occupation, location and duration restrictions, as outlined on the work permit document.
BDO Immigration Services can help employers and foreign workers by tracking expiry dates, assessing existing foreign worker employment records and acting as a key partner during Employer Compliance Reviews or site inspections. Our services are supported by an extensive data management software program to ensure timely reminders and action plans.
We can also help establish or revise global mobility programs to ensure that the policies are comprehensive, up-to-date, and compliant with the new regulatory requirements.
For businesses that expand beyond Canada’s borders, dealing with tax becomes even more complicated. At BDO, we have access to a network of tax professionals from around the world who have the expertise to help you.
