However the employer must proof beyond reasonable doubt that the position you are being hired for cannot be filled by a Canadian citizen or permanent resident on ground, but only by a foreigner

The employer or company must also show that the company has made extensive efforts to hire someone within the country for the  job without any success before reaching out to you across borders.
