Reforms Aimed At Putting Canadians First A Welcome Change

EDMONTON, June 20, 2014 /CNW/ - Skilled tradespeople in every province stand to gain from reforms announced to the Temporary Foreign Worker program.

"Greater oversight, enforcement and accountability is just what's needed to ensure employers make a strong effort to hire Canadians first," said Hunter Reid, CEO of TDT Crews. "While there's a place for temporary foreign workers in the labour mix today and in the future in Canada, the program will be most successful when the emphasis is on employing Canadians first."

TDT Crew specializes in supplying crews of Canadian workers to regions across the country.

"To provide Canadian skilled trades with every opportunity to go to where the jobs are, the government will need to take the next logical step," Reid added. "That means national recognition of certification, and introducing employment incentives for labour mobility, so that trades certified in one province can work in every region of Canada."
