Here’s How The Numbers Stack Up
With the new Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) caps in place, bringing in temporary foreign workers is no longer an option for the majority of hospitality and food services businesses moving forward. By using Mobilize to deploy Canadian youth from other parts of the country, you will significantly save on costs to hire an employee over the longer term. Here are two standard scenarios of the costs to hire an employee based on four workers and 20 workers for your comparison and reference.
For 4 Workers
For 20 Workers
In the above tables, retention costs factor in a replacement cost of 20%, not including additional professional LMO/LMIA fees. This would only be the case if you applied in advance for additional spaces on an application. Housing costs are based on four people sharing a two‐bedroom apartment at $1,500 a month – though some businesses will have corporate housing programs that may be more cost effective than these figures.
Mobilize costs less than the TFWP and causes far less hassle. Why wait 6‐12 months or longer for an LMIA to be approved when you can quickly get workers in place, hassle‐free.
