Canada Eases Rules for Foreign Workers

Date: 18.11.2006

Canada will make it easier for employers in the booming western provinces of Alberta and British Columbia to hire temporary foreign workers, the Canadian press reported, citing an official statement from Ottawa.

"There are going to be certain occupations under tremendous pressure where employers aretrouble finding workers," Immigration Minister Monte Solberg told reporters.

"We will reduce the requirements that they have to go through to bring in those categories into the country. It will save them several weeks."

The government's new program will dramatically cut the length of time to process an employer's application for workers. That timeline currently runs from 13 to 17 weeks. Under the new rules, employers seeking certain professions would now only have to advertise for a week.

Over the next 10 years, Solberg said figures suggested the shortage of workers in B.C. and Alberta could be as high as 350,000.
