Goal to fill real skills scarcities
The TFWP is tailored to assist the Maple Leaf Country fill scarcities of trained manpower. And the latest improvements have been reportedly crafted to help the nation gain the needed temporary labor force with skills in severe scarcity (wherein there is a lack of qualified nationals).

It’s vital for those recruiters, who are filing a petition for a Labor Market Opinion (LMO). Further, though the recruiters will enjoy the right to decide language conditions for the existing vacancies, they will have to prove that the condition of an overseas language is imperative for the employment opportunity up for grabs.
