Economic Implications of Recent Changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program
Institute for Research on Public Policy and Christopher Worswick
The policy changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program the federal government announced in mid-2013 make sense economically.

An annual cap on the number of temporary workers entering Canada should be implemented while additional reforms are considered.
