CBA welcomes study on temporary foreign workers

  • December 22, 2016

The CBA’s Immigration Law Section applauds the spirit of a Parliamentary Committee study on temporary foreign workers. In a letter sent December 13, the Section took the opportunity to comment on five areas that require further consideration:

  • Separating programs based on skill levels, to attract high-skill workers and better protect low-skill workers
  • Improving service and predictability for Canadian businesses
  • Increasing flexibility to take into account industry norms and business realities
  • Sharing information to harmonize immigration programs
  • Increasing program efficiency and integrity

 The letter was sent to Employment Minister MaryAnne Mihychuk and Immigration Minister John McCallum.
