Share your thoughts on proposed changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program

July 16, 2019

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and Employment and Social Development Canada are seeking feedback on a proposal that would provide greater mobility to foreign workers through the introduction of occupation-specific work permits.

Under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, foreign workers must obtain an employer-specific work permit, which allows the worker to work only for the employer specified on the work permit.

Proposed changes to the Primary Agriculture Stream and Low-wage Stream of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program would allow a foreign worker to move between jobs in the same occupation without the requirement for a new permit each time.

Submit your comments by July 22. For more details on the proposal and for submission details, please visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada notice.
