The latest restrictions put on the well-known Canada Temporary Foreign Worker Program, to allegedly manage the subject of unemployment affecting the local Canadian manpower, has significantly lessened the overall number of the applications presented through the class.
The figure of the petitions filed under the Canada Temporary Foreign Worker Scheme has declined by 70%, or so claims a report. Some observers claim the same is due to some new amendments that have been allegedly started with a goal. As per the current Employment Minister, the decrease could be mainly courtesy the improvements introduced, during the mid-2014.
Target of Introducing Reorganizations.
Jason Kenney, the minister, reportedly stated that when the petitions obtained during the year gone by and the ones received during the current year is compared, it becomes rather apparent that this year the figures have dropped down, and the same serves the point of restructuring the laws & rules.
Allegedly, the amendments have put checks on the recruiters/job-providers by not permitting them to lessen the working hours of the employees from Canada even as the reorganizations would also not enable them to discharge an employee, who arrives via the TFWP. In a manner, the same safeguards the right of a worker who is an outsider.
Those immigrant candidates who would be rather committed, and intend to be a vital component of the Maple Leaf Country, would have to present their submissions, so the aspirants, who don’t wish to commit would, by design, be not keen to submit a petition. This manner, the recruiters/job-providers also would get relief from the not-too-serious candidates.
Issues that may have influenced the figures
- Recruiters/job-providers were reported of discharging Canadian manpower in favor of the temporary overseas labor force even while many of them still are discovered to be doing the same.
- In the province of Saskatchewan, a case is being probed. Reportedly, a firm suspended 58 electricians even as impermanent workers from abroad continued to be in jobs.
- It was found during the previous year that nearly 60% of the candidates—whose submissions were processed–were never signed-up by recruiters/job-providers inflicting bringing a BIG cost on the common tax payers.
- The modifications would check firms/job-providers from appointing provisional overseas employees welcomed on a not-too-high salary.
- Simultaneously, an upper limit put on the signing-up the figure of workers would be ensured. According to the latest law which may be brought in by 2016, a recruiter/company may not be in a position to take into service over 10%, or one-tenth, of the workers via this stream. It will be rigorously applied in the areas where in the rate of joblessness would be over 60%.
- During 2012, the figure of the temporary overseas workers has increased by 100% in 7 years, in the process, hitting the 340,000-mark.
The latest improvements in the TFWP were brought in with the object of controlling unemployment plagguin the national employees. But, they have decreased the figure of petitions submitted. The same all over again is seen in dissimilar ways by the observers and detractors. While some hail the development, others claim the same shows nothing but the scheme’s complete failure.
