Decrease, and only allow for industries with a shortage of Canadian workers

Let's use common sense here, who is out of work? Have they been here longer than the guy that has the current job? Then take him out and put the guy who was in this country the longest in that place, A) he's done more for the country B) we need to start worrying more about the people we have in this country than the ones from other countries.

Increase, but only for industries with a shortage of Canadian workers.

They should be treated as citizens with medical. And companies found abusing them should be charged.

@95K5YQGfrom British Columbia  answered…3mos

It's obviously needed, as these jobs are jobs that many Canadians wouldn't want to do as they are hard jobs that are long hours, but I would also say that we need to treat them with respect, and we can't just let them be at the whim of the agricultural owners as well. I would say keep the system as it is, but we also can't ignore the problems with it, nor the growing demand of Canadian produce that is needed around the world right now, especially with the war in Ukraine.

Canadian workers in industries such as farms could fill the jobs that are currently available in Canada on a larger business. Greed should not be incentivized, plenty of young people could use these opportunities as stepping stones into the work place that are Canadian citizens.

Regardless, the government should not be involved in this matter.

End allowing temporary foreign workers into Canada, period. There are plenty of able body, able minded Canadians not working.

Until the citizen of the land can’t put numbers allowed foreigners to work

Continue to monitor job demand by industry and allow addition work visas accordingly

@8V94HH4from Ontario  answered…1yr

Increase, not enough temporary workers for agriculture production

@Kerrnelfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

We should be educating our population that work role does not equal value, and incentivize Canadians to take jobs that used to be viewed as "beneath them"

@8TYWNDPNew Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…1yr

Considered individual cases, the need and if there are enough Canadian workers to fill positions

@8TRPMHXfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

I am unsure at this moment/ don’t have enough information to formulate an opinion

@8TQTW27New Democraticfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

Temporary foreign workers should make the same wages as citizens doing the same job, and be given a path to citizenship or permanent residency

@8TLH2TQfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

Increase, and offer easy pathways to citizenship if the worker is interested in permanently relocating to Canada

@8TGZRLYfrom Quebec  answered…1yr

Increase, but make standards for living, access to healthcare, etc.

@8T3KK2VLiberalfrom Manitoba  answered…2yrs

Maintain the current amount for industries without a shortage, and increase only for industries with a shortage of canadian workers.

Decrease, we should invest in Canadians who are in the unemployment field.

@8QZL5HTConservativefrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

Depends on the economy and Canada's current unemployment rate at that time.

@8PV32S8Greenfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

Allow where it is necessary. Where is our tax money being allocated. We should determine the highest rate of tax our citizens are expected to provide for people that are new to this country. It's not fair for people that have been contributing for 30+ years to our government to be taken advantage of by people that have just moved here and refuse to work.

@8PP8HSTfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

Increase, because despite what some claim immigration actually helps our economy. But the Canadian government needs to establish a national identity that all Canadians can share to prevent tribalism among our various cultures.

@8PMSYCPfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

@8PJF9PZfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

The amount should be determined by the unemployment level experienced at the time. Putting Canadians to work first should be the priority

@8PFW692Rhinocerosfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

Regardless, the temporary foreign workers need to be better protected. Employers mistreat them and threaten to deport them if they report the mistreatment. They need to be aware of their rights and have options if their employers are abusive. This information and contact people need to be available in their langague.
