Journal article

Restrictions on Rights and Freedoms of Low-skilled Temporary Foreign Workers: Policy Alternatives Deserving Consideration

Date

2010

Authors

Eugénie Depatie-Pelletier

Abstract

A portion of the temporary foreign workers admitted for work in low-skilled occupations in Canada are subjected to
major restrictions to Charter-based rights and freedoms. This administrative condition has been associated by
researchers, community groups, etc. to systemic human and labour rights abuses, which points to the fact that a
specific combination of alternatives policies should be given serious consideration by policy-makers.
