(Apr. 24/13) Amidst the recent media firestorm over the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) program, CRFA has fought hard to dispel myths and convey the facts.
An April 3 press conference by the Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL) didn’t help matters – the AFL demonized the program and spread misinformation about how it is used in our industry.
What we did
CRFA quickly responded by releasing a media statement that debunked myths about the TFW program. Click here to read our fact sheet.
We also tackled false information about the program reported in the media.
