Canada follows US, makes work visa difficult

Effective July, employers in Canada will have to pay $275 as processing fee for each application that they file to bring in a foreign worker.


Shilpa Phadnis, TNN | Aug 13, 2013, 09.58AM IST

BANGALORE: The past decade has seen a phenomenal increase in the number of Indians working in Canada, the highest amongst any single nationality. But that now looks set to slow down.


Just as the US, Canada too is tightening its temporary foreign worker program (TFWP) that allows foreign nationals to work in Canada for short periods. The effort, as Rakesh Prabhu, partner-immigration practice in ALMT Legal, says, is to improve employment opportunities for its locals.


Effective July, employers in Canada will have to pay $275 as processing fee for each application that they file to bring in a foreign worker. Till now there was no fee. The new fee is non-refundable in case the application is rejected.


Employers have to fill a new questionnaire that tries to figure out whether a firm is seeking to replace existing Canadian workers. Employers must advertise for the position locally three months before the application for bringing a foreign worker is filed, and the advertisement must run for four weeks compared to two weeks previously.


The Employment and Social Development Canada website adds, "In addition to advertising on the national Job Bank website or the equivalent provincial/territorial websites, employers must prove that they have used at least two other recruitment methods that are consistent with the advertising practices for the occupation."

The new regulation also lays down English and French as the only languages that can be identified as a job requirement. If someone wants to bring in a foreign national who knows only one of the other languages, a very strong case has to be built for that.


The latest restrictions follow a decision in April to end a provision that allowed employers to pay foreign workers as much as 15% less than the average Canadian wage for a job.


Sajan Poovayya, managing partner in law firm Poovayya & Co, said the changes would have an impact on the Indian workforce movement to Canada. "Companies in India will find it harder to use this route to ship personnel on temporary IT assignments. There will be cost over runs and time delays in sending workforce to that country. The Canadian government's decision to insist on employers who rely on temporary foreign workers to have a firm plan in place to transition to a Canadian workforce over time, will make the whole programme unattractive to Indian technology players," he said.


Canada's move comes shortly after the backlash that followed when the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) outsourced its IT services to iGate, which then replaced RBC's IT employees with foreign workers. It also comes after a ten-year period (2003 to 2012) that saw the number of Indian workers in Canada grow a whopping 730%, making them the fastest-growing foreign worker community in that country. The number of Indian foreign workers rose from 2,686 in 2003 to 22,281 in 2012, said a report by Canada Facts and Figures 2012. The French were a distant second with a growth of 332% to 18,961 workers, followed by Filipinos, who grew 280% to 23,683.

This is not India specific. Every country is safeguarding its interests by controlling immigration.

Since Indians, Chinese are the biggest legal immigrants , it affects them most.

With a 1.25 Billion population (1,250,000,000) India has a Huge burden to take care of, as the population becomes more educated and demand their rights, India will collapse on itself.

India's solution was to export its population, now even that is being blocked all over the world. Only solution is to split India into 10 diffrent countries. Which will eventually happen.

Just to get an idea of how much India's burden is.

Below is 10 Million, do that 100 times and you will have 1 BIllion.

100,000 100,000 100,000 100,000 100,000 100,000 100,000 100,000 100,000 100,000

what are you talking about, it has been proved beyond the shadow of doubt that the terrorism inside India has been done by Indian Army itself, go and learn the facts from your own Govt. finding, and as per American Army chief terrorism in Baluchistan is being done by Indian consulates in Afghanistan, go and learn the facts. About Hindu terrorism Hindu have been doing terrorism from day one, in Bangladesh Indian planted mukti buhinis, the terrorist group trained by India. and more so, this space is not large enough to write about Indian terrorism, but the worst of all is the killing your own citizens in Bombay by your own planning to blame Pakistan. all has come out as a set up by India to blame Pakistan. All is now clear as an act done by Indian Army, pity is that Indian Army killed 250 of its own citizens.

so India is the real terrorist country, and now it has been proved by facts.

True this is for everyone BUT India will be most hurt by it because India has a more IT investment than china or any other country individually. If they just follow the rules then none of this would happen.

Its just sad that the common Indian with genuine intention now has to bear the brunt of corporate greed.

Read the article again . After US canada also tightens visa requirements. saudi has already sent 300 000 indians back. Middle east countries have also started national employment programs and have started the cutting down process and the largest regression is going to be again indians.

The situation is bound get worse as Indians dont belong to USA or EU they belong in India and the economy there is tanking !...So once this happens then avenues of going abroad will also diminish just like it was in the 90's BUT only worse as at that time the middle east was actively recruiting.:)
