Immigration Policy Review for Temporary Foreign Workers

Immigration news update:

We have some very exciting news to share with you today: the Government of Canada has promised to look into its foreign worker policy. Under the new liberal government, we have seen quite a few positive changes and we are hoping more will follow.

Here are some of the changes:

  • There were better processing times for family reunification application
  • The number of applications allowed for parental sponsorship had doubled
  • The government is increasing the number of immigrants it’s receiving every year

Most recently, the Minister of the IRCC, John McCallum, had announced that Government is looking into its policy towards foreign worker and possibility of giving them better access to permanent residency.

Under the current policy, highly-skilled foreign workers have a better opportunity to apply for permanent residence through express entry. However, hardworking low-skilled foreign workers don’t have much access as much as higher-skilled workers — even after many years of working and being settled in Canada. This results in them being forced to return to their country at the end of their work permit validity. This is unfair for many people, who have to separate from their family and want to build their future in Canada.

This problem had caught the government’s attention.

We’re hoping a lot of positive changes happen in near future so that low-skilled worker who are the pillar and backbone of Canada’s industrial economy would have a better chance to immigrate and bring their family with them. We will update you as soon as we have any new developments, so stay tuned.

    My fiancee is Canadian. We both live together abroad, and need to apply for my PR via family class sponsorship. We want to do the sponsorship while still living outside Canada, so that we can still work and save. We are scared of being rejected due to the difficulty of proving intent to reside in Canada. This feels really unfair since we just want to move, and we are certainly serious. But without family in Canada (everyone moved to South Africa) it seems impossible to prove intent. Should we just move to Canada and apply from inside and do my application with an open work permit?

    It is so stressful and we have intention of moving.

      Hello Ruan. Thank you for writing to us. The most difficult part of the spousal sponsorship is knowing which documents you will need to prove the legitimacy of your marriage, and the intent to live in Canada. I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for you, so that you may accomplish your immigration goals.

      Hello Simran. As a temporary foreign worker, our brother will not need to take the IELTS exam. He will however need to find a Canadian employer before he can apply for a visa. Once he has located a Canadian employer, we will be able to help him with the work visa that he will need.

      Hello Bhukya. You will first need a job offer from a Canadian company. You can search the Canadian job boards such as http://www.monster.ca or http://www.indeed.ca . Once you have your job offer, we can help you obtain the work visa that you will need to come to Canada.
