The government has recently made some changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker program, which impact how employers can bring foreign workers to Canada as well as the labour market opinion process.
The changes come after several media reports that the Royal Bank of Canada was bringing in foreign workers, and rumours soon circulated that the workers would be replacing Canadian employees and that those very employees were the ones that were training them.
These new changes include changes to the requirements for foreign workers in Canada, new costs for Labour Market Opinions (LMOs) as well as changes to the Labour Market Opinion process itself.
These new stipulations will result in huge changes to how foreign workers are brought to Canada and make it much more difficult for both employees and employers.
