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
