Tuesday, 8 March 2011

A new agreement that gives the province of Yukon the role of self-managing the Temporary Foreign Worker Program within the Territory has been signed by The Governments of Canada and Yukon.

According to the agreement, Yukon will be permitted to manage applications for the Canadian Temporary Foreign Worker Visa program within the province.

Yukon will be more responsible for helping foreign workers come to Canada via Temporary Foreign Worker Program. Yukon's Government can recommend overseas workers to immigrate to Canada without requiring a Service Canada assessment to determine if there are Canadians or permanent residents available to fill the vacant positions.

In an announcement on Feb 24, Patrick Rouble, Yukon Minister of Education and Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources expressed that the new agreement will offer more opportunities for Yukon to attract foreign labour.

“This agreement provides one more tool for Yukon’s labour market stakeholders to address Yukon’s labour market opportunities, both now and into the future,” said Minister Rouble.

“Our first priority is to work with underrepresented groups in Yukon to meet labour force demands and turn to temporary foreign workers when the need arises” he added.
