Abstract

Labour Minister MaryAnn Mihychuk (Kildonan-St. Paul) has said she hopes the temporary foreign worker program is no longer necessary and joked at a conference a year ago she plans to celebrate the day the government shuts it down.

Ms. Mihychuk’s sentiments appear to echo those of MP Bryan May, the chairman of the standing committee looking into reforming the program, which allows Canadian employers to hire foreign nationals to fill temporary labour and skill shortages when qualified Canadian citizens are not available. Mr. May has indicated the program may be scrapped altogether, a move that has been applauded in some sectors. Since May, the committee has been conducting hearings into ways to change the program to meet the demands of Canadians.
