Recruiters charging foreign workers in Ontario illegal fees as high as $12,000 for jobs that might not exist, report finds




Rachel Browne


The number of temporary foreign workers in Canada has more than tripled since 2000 to 338,213 in 2012 providing a boon for job recruiters, some of whom are exploiting foreign workers, a new report finds.

Recruiters are charging fees as high as $12,000 for jobs that might not exist and seizing workers’ passports, the report, published Tuesday by the Metcalf Foundation, says.

Such practices persist among live-in caregivers, who are theoretically protected against these practices by Ontario law, as well as migrant workers, who aren’t protected, in other “lower skill” industries such as agriculture, food processing, and cleaning.
