Temporary Foreign Worker Inspections on the Increase

Whilst the Federal Government is contemplating changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) to alleviate skill shortages employers are experiencing across Canada, it is also focusing on compliance through a significant increase in the number TFWP inspections it is carrying out.

An inspection can be triggered at random, by a whistleblower or, as is more often the case when an employer that has previously used the TFWP applies for a new Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
