The government is taking action to defend temporary foreign workers, counting live-in caregivers, from possible abuse and exploitation. Canadian Government owes it to them, their company and all Canadians to make sure that the program is fair and evenhanded. In spite of everything, they are a necessary constituent of Canada’s economic accomplishment.
These improvements stand for an imperative step. Temporary foreign employees assist the Canadian economy by filling labor needs in sectors where Canadians or permanent residents are not willingly available. Canadian government is taking action to look up the honesty of the program while ensuring that these people are afforded the essential safeguards.
Highlights of the changes, which come into effect on April 1, 2011, comprise:
1. A two-year ban from hiring temporary foreign workers for employers who are ineffective to meet their commitments to workers regarding wages, working conditions and profession
2. A more thorough assessment of the authenticity of the job offer
3. A boundary on the length of time a temporary foreign worker may work in Canada before returning home.
Employers seeking to employ temporary foreign workers, together with live-in caregivers, will now be assessed next to past fulfillment with program requirements previous to approval can be granted. Employers found to have dishonored worker rights may be decline approval to hire a foreign worker.
Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program helps deal with temporary labor deficiency by allowing employers to hire foreign workers when adequate numbers of Canadian workers are not willingly available. Without right of entry to temporary foreign labor, many small businesses would not be capable to function and would be forced into bankruptcy.
The Live-in Caregiver Program is an exclusive program within the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. It allows the entry of qualified caregivers into Canada when Canadians or permanent residents can’t fill occupation vacancies. After having finished the program’s requirements, Live-in Caregiver Program participants can then submit an application for permanent residence by desirable quality of their contribution in the program.
