Canada proclaims reforms to Temporary Foreign Worker Program

Canada Temporary Foreign Worker Program
The government of Canada has proclaimed changes to Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), which include a general restructuring in the program besides many important changes made to the procedures of several work permit applications.

The overhaul is announced in a joint press conference of Minister of Employment and Social Development, Jason Kenney, and Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Chris Alexander.

Commenting on the reforms, Kenney said that the new reforms that are comprehensive and balanced will restore the original purpose of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to fill available jobs when eligible Canadians are not available to fill them.

One reform is towards the employers, with minimum 10 employees to cap of 10% on their labor force that could include low wage temporary foreign employees. This could minimize the number of low wage temporary foreign employees to 50% in the coming three years.

The TFWP is being restructured into two different programs named the new International Mobility Programs (IMP) and TFWP. The TFWP will refer only those groups of foreign employees who enter Canada on employer’s request along with an approval by means of a new “labor market impact assessment” (LMIA). The IMP includes those streams of foreign employees who are not related to LMIA and whose main intent is to progress Canada’s extensive economic and cultural interest rather than occupying specific jobs.

The head department for TFWP is expected to be Employment and Social Development Canada, and for IMP the head department will be Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Thus, the reforms in the program have been executed to make sure that temporary foreign employee program could react quickly to the labor requirements while guarantying that the privileges of both foreign workers and Canada nationals are protected.
