More foreign workers will be able to work in Canada on a temporary basis if Canada’s offer is approved by the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Canada recently proposed expanding several categories of temporary workers who will be allowed to enter the country at the WTO’s negotiations on the General Agreement of Trade in Services (GATS).

Canada’s revised offer outlines further commitments the country is willing to make in exchange for improved access to foreign markets.
