Job offer validation is a process by which a Canadian government body determines whether a particular job offer made by a Canadian employer to a foreign individual should be approved (validated).

If the employment is to take place in Montreal or another city in the Province of Quebec, the job offer must also be approved by the Quebec Government.

HRDC confirmation is based on successfully establishing each of the following requirements:

  • The offer of employment is genuine;
  • The wages and working conditions of the employment would be sufficient to attract and retain Canadians; and
  • The employment is full-time and not seasonal.
