Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program – What disgruntled Canadians Need to Know
By Author: Admin | April 18, 2013
Canada has a new foreign worker program that allows people to obtain temporary work. Many Canadians are becoming disgruntled because people have been able to come to Canada and work as a sales representative. Foreigners are supposed to add to the job market, and the Citizenship and Immigration Canada are allowed to perform a severe assessment of the job offer. There is also a limit on the length of time a temporary foreign worker may labor in the country before they go back home.
This means that theoretically, there should be no companies seeking foreigners for jobs that require education past high school. Those jobs are to be reserved for Canadians who either are trained, or have been employed for a while at the company with the job opening.
Unfortunately, it is very clear that jobs that are Level B and C are being approved which deprives college graduates in Canada from a position they are qualified for. This is being done to keep the prices down at fast food restaurants and coffee shops.
Training local Canadians are not considered a necessity because foreign help can be hired cheaply. This means that the amount of skilled labor in Canada will continue to stay low as well. This tendency can also be seen in the United States, and it is clear that
it frustrates many there as well.
Thankfully, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has promised reforms are being created to close the loopholes. We are keeping a very close eye on these reforms so we can continue to be a trusted source of knowledge and continued supplier of immigration assistance into Canada.
