Ontario proposes increased fines for Canadian employers who withhold the passports of temporary workers

Ontario lawmakers are finalizing the Working for Workers Act, 2023, which would impose the highest fines in Canada on business owners who withhold the passports of their temporary foreign workers.

Proposed penalties for withholding a foreign national's passport or work permit range from $100,000 to $200,000 for every worker whose rights are violated.

Individuals found guilty of violating the proposed law may face a fine of up to $500,000, up to one year in prison, or both.

In addition, corporations that are convicted may be fined up to $1 million.

Canada’s immigration numbers expected to break records in 2023

According to the latest immigration levels plan for 2023-2025, Canada is set to welcome an even higher number of permanent residents than originally targeted.

In November 2022, the target was 465,000 new permanent residents for 2023, 485,000 for 2024, and 500,000 for 2025.

However, in just the first quarter of 2023, Canada welcomed 145,330 new permanent residents, a significant increase compared to the same period in 2022, where only 113,800 were welcomed.

This suggests that Canada is on track to exceed their original targets and could welcome over 580,000 new immigrants, shattering previous records.
