International Mobility Program Employer Audits/Inspections
Background: The International Mobility Program (IMP) encompasses amongst other things the Intra-company Transferee (ICT) and NAFTA immigration streams. Audits and inspections are conducted on a random selection basis to ensure compliance with the regulations and policies of the respective streams.
Impact: Employers that are found to be “non-compliant” can face significant penalties including:
- Disqualification from using the International Mobility Program and the Temporary Foreign Worker Program for 2 years.
- Cancellation of work permits previously issued under either the IMP or TFWP
- An administrative fine
- Publication of the employers name on a list of disqualified employers
