PCA Welcomes Changes to Federal “Temporary Foreign Worker Program”

The Progressive Contractors Association of Canada (PCA) was present at a media event in Nisku, AB on April 25, at which the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development (HRSDC) announced implementation of an important evolution in the “Labour Market Opinion (LMO)” approval process. In order to address considerable wait-times in approval of LMOs, the new model will provide employers with strong track records with an Accelerated-LMO within 10 days of online application.  PCA welcomes and supports the A-LMO on behalf of its progressively unionized contractors, many of whom have attained the “trusted employer” status via strong track records in prior employment of Temporary Foreign Workers.
