(Mar. 12/13) Federal Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development Diane Finley and Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney are reviewing the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) program.
CRFA met with both ministers last week, along with national employer associations, unions and organizations for migrant workers, to discuss the importance of the program.
We emphasized how critical the program is to restaurant operators in many areas of the country experiencing staff shortages in all skill categories. CRFA will submit a written response on behalf of the industry to five questions (PDF) posed by the ministers.
