Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
2
November 2010
Whereas: 
  1. Changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program to be implemented in April 2011 will impose a four year limit on the stay of Temporary Foreign Workers and a four year delay before they are able to participate again in the program;
  2. This will increase the undocumented workforce and thus increase the vulnerability of workers;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR oppose the limit on duration of Temporary Foreign Workers’ stay and the imposed time period to re-apply for the program.
