Mga Detalye

Our panel will discuss Canada's Temporary Foreign Program and how there are multiple possibilities for reform. It has been reported, on various occasions, that low-skilled temporary foreign workers are abused and exploited by Canadian employers.

As the Temporary Foreign Workers program (TFWP) is getting more and more popular among Canadian employers ranging from restoration to health care, it is Canada's responsibility to know the truth behind this migration program.

Our guest speakers will be discussing, based on their expertise, what the Canadian gov. can do in order for the abuse and exploitation to be something of the past.
