Further changes have been made to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, announced the federal government.

Effective Dec. 31, the government introduced regulatory and administrative changes that will: provide the government with the authority to conduct inspections to make sure employers are meeting the conditions of the program; allow the government to ban non-compliant employers from the program for two years and immediately add their names to a public “black list”; strengthen criteria for assessing Labour Market Opinion (LMO) and work permit applications; and provide the government with the authority to revoke or suspend LMOs, or refuse to process LMO applications, and to revoke and refuse to process work permits, when necessary.

The reform is to ensure that Canadians are always first in line for available jobs, while ensuring temporary foreign workers are protected, says the government.
