Changes made to Temporary Foreign Worker Program - IRCC
With immediate effect the four-year cumulative duration for temporary foreign workers which is popularly known as “four-in four-out” rule in Canada is no longer applied. A foreign worker, after completion of four years of work will become ineligible to work further in Canada. He has to be out of the country for another 4 years to be eligible to work again in Canada.  This was implemented by the government to prevent workers on a prolonged stay in Canada and gain Permanent Residence in Canada. This rule was implemented in the year 2011 by Conservative Government.

The reason for this change in this rules is that the workers life is being affected along with their families and even the employers are facing a situation. After establishing social and economic ties in the communities the foreign worker is unable to pursue his permanent residence and the rule to leave the country after four years has become controversial. The foreign workers face a great deal of uncertainty and instability on their work and also employers unable to take the maximum benefit from their skills due to time limit.  Hence to prevent the unnecessary instability and hardship for the employers and foreign workers, government decided to end this rule of Four-in Four-out. 

It also to be noted that this four year rules was not applicable for Managerial and professional positions working in Canada under  NAFTA and provincial nomination certificates.
