Abstract

As of April 1, 2015, any migrant worker in a low-waged
occupation who has had work permits for a total of 4 years will
not be able to renew their work permit and will have to wait
another 4 years before being able to return to work in Canada.
This is called the ‘4 and 4 rule’.
This ‘4 and 4’ rule applies to workers in the Temporary Foreign
Workers Program (including workers in agriculture), the Live-In
Caregiver Program, and the Caregiver stream. It does not apply
to workers in the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program.
