Major Changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program for Canada
9th, Nov 2021
The Government of Quebec made it easy for employers to hire overseas candidates with high-demand occupations under the province’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP).
The province simplified work permit processing exempted employers from posting and recruitment efforts, as well as increased the share of temporary foreign workers per workplace by 10% to 20%.
This policy will allow the province to address severe labour shortages in Quebec’s major in-demand occupations, especially in the sectors such as retail trade, accommodation, catering, and food processing.
