Fine Tune Procedure of Canadian PR for TFWs

Fine Tune Procedure of Canadian PR for TFWs
Canada wants to improve its procedure for temporary foreign workers to get permanent residence. A parliamentary review was set off in May by the Skills and Social Development, the Status of Persons with Disabilities (HUMA) and Standing Committee on Human Resources to fine tune the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The review takes care of issues of the TFW program and its sections – Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program, Caregiver Program and the program for low-skilled workers. After drafting a report, the government will take 120 days to process.

“There are industries which need temporary foreign workers. There are chronic labor shortages,” McCallum said. “Even after those industries look very hard under every rock for Canadians, they still can’t find them, and so they can justify some temporary foreign workers.”

He went on to say “But the condition which we think is really important is that those temporary foreign workers be on the path to permanent residence. And I think, if they want to…they should have the opportunity.”

Marco Luciano, the coordinator of Coalition for Migrant Worker Rights Canada (CMWRC) in Alberta, criticized the review process. “It was disappointing. It felt like it was rushed,” His side wanted more people from the migrant community to represent the same to the CMWRC committee.

“[We] will continue to demand permanent residency to migrant workers here and upon arrival. We are demanding for mobility through open work permits and the removal of the oppressive 4-in, 4-out rule,” he added.

Critics have pointed out the exploitation workers face in the hands of their employers and recruitment agencies. Keeping in mind all the complaints from lawyers, businesses, and immigrants, the committee is inclined to present the policy recommendations to the House of Commons by June 15.
