Abstract

The federal government is freezing the 20 per cent cap on the number of low-wage temporary foreign workers a company can hire.

Labour Minister MaryAnn Mihychuk said the controversial temporary foreign worker program needs an overhaul and will announce her plan for more changes later this year.

But for now, the cap, which was set to go down to 10 per cent beginning July 1, will instead stay where it is.
