Government of Canada overhauls temporary foreign worker program


Employment Minister, Jason Kenney, and Immigration Minister, Chris Alexander will unveil the proposed changes to the controversial temporary foreign worker program, which caused much of the coal mine industry controversy in the South Peace.

There are reports that the reforms will include publishing the names of companies that hire foreign workers, along with the number of employees they’re allowed to bring into the country.

A poll commissioned by the government last month suggested that most people support the program as long as it doesn’t prevent Canadians from finding work.
