Canada can’t let labour mobility create an underclass of TFWs

Abstract

The conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade talks in early October unleashed a torrent of talk about trade’s impact on Canadian jobs, particularly in the auto and dairy sectors. Less attention has been paid to the terms of the deal that govern labour mobility, which could affect virtually every sector of Canada’s job market, and jeopardize the ability of Canada’s next generation of workers to develop their skills and flourish.
