(Sep. 25/13) Not surprisingly, the priority issue raised by participants at CRFA’s member roundtable at the Alberta Liquor Industry Conference, Sept. 12, was the province’s growing labour shortage.

After a few opening remarks from CRFA Chair Susan Senecal, we shared CRFA’s lobbying activities on the temporary foreign worker (TFW) program, as well as possible changes to the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP). [Update: Alberta announces AINP expansion] We also assured members that we would share their concerns with Minister Kenney in an Alberta Coalition on Labour Shortages (ACALS) meeting the next day.

We thank all CRFA members who came out to meet and share their views with CRFA President and CEO Garth Whyte, VP Western Canada Mark von Schellwitz and our Alberta Directors.
