Canadian Immigration Initiates Changes To Its Temporary Foreign Worker Program

03 Dec 2015


Immigration News

Canadian employers mostly rely on Temporary Foreign Worker Program to recruit temporary foreign employees and it has gained more popularity in the past decade. There has been dramatic increase in the number of employers using this program to fill their resources with skilled foreign labor, with increasing popularity the number of documented cases of abuse of the program increased too.

As Canada immigration permits maximum 350,000 temporary foreign workers every year, the number is expected to rise every year. However most of the temporary foreign workers are happy about their experience with their employer and often claim that their work experience in Canada is a stepping stone in achieving Canada Permanent Residency, on the other hand there are foreign employees who report to the immigration regarding abuse from their employer.

Canada immigration considering this as a serious lay back to the program have acted positively on the reports from the foreign employees and the Canadian employers were caught and penalized for their non-compliance act. Taking further precautionary steps Canada implemented strict policies for Canadian employers violating the conditions attached to Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

The previous rules which gave the employers a ban of up to two years for their violation was not considered as severity of offence by the employers, under the new regulations, the severity of the punishment will be determined by the level of abuse from the employer.

Under the new rules of Temporary Foreign Worker Program, Canadian employers violating the conditions can receive:

  • Ban from the program for up to 10 years, if found the violation is severe then the employer may also receive permanent ban from the program.

  • Their company will be added to public list which details the violation of the program.

  • Official warnings

  • Fines which may range maximum up to one million dollars per year.
