Abstract

The policy changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program the federal government announced in mid-2013 make sense economically.
There are ongoing concerns that temporary foreign workers may take jobs from young Canadians entering the labour market and lower-skilled Canadians.
An annual cap on the number of temporary workers entering Canada should be implemented while additional reforms are considered.
