Since 2011, Canada’s federal government has introduced sweeping changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP). Regrettably, employers report negative repercussions from these reforms, which have handicapped short-term project capabilities and altered long-term business development plans. 

These perturbations are largely the result of red tape around bringing foreign talent onboard using the TFWP. In addition to the sheer complexity of the new regulations, audit readiness and compliance are a growing concern for many employers.
