Major Changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program for Canada
29th, Apr 2022
The president of the Council of Canadian Innovators (CCI), Benjamin Bergen, called for the Government of Canada to allow foreign high-potential tech talents with in-demand skills to come to Canada without a job offer.
The president of a business council added that the United Kingdom has already launched national innovation strategy on this matter, and Canada also should try it as the Canadian labour market is desperate for software developers or data scientists.
Benjamin Bergen clarified that there was no “need for a 100-page academic study or a parliamentary committee convening hearings on Canada’s acute talent shortage and then waiting a year to
publish a report,” and the labour shortage in the country demands to take this situation seriously.
