Major Changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program for Canada
8th, Oct 2021
On October 7, 2021, the Government of Ontario proposed amendments to Ontario Regulation 422/17 (General) that directly impact the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s (OINP) Employer Job Offer:
In-Demand Skills (EJO IDS) stream. According to the proposed regulations, employers seeking approval of a NOC 7511 (Transport truck drivers) employment position under the Employer Job Offer:
In-Demand Skills stream will have to be registered with Ontario’s Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration (CVOR) system, and have a Carrier Safety Rating (CSR) of Excellent, Satisfactory or Satisfactory-Unaudited.
The Government will also check employers’ business ties to the province since they will be required to have their vehicles plated in Ontario.
The new amendments are posted on Ontario’s Regulatory Registry for public consultation which ends on November 21, 2021. #Ontario, #amendments, #truck_drivers, #EJO_IDS, #OINP, #CVOR, #CSR
