Temp. Overseas workers get increased Canada PRs
Posted on February 20, 2018
Increased Canada PRs are being obtained by migrants who arrived in Canada as temporary overseas workers according to the latest report by Statistics Canada. It is titled as ‘How provisional are temporary overseas workers?’
The report by Statistics Canada analyzes data of 4 cohorts of Temporary Foreign Workers. These are aged between 18 and 64 years and had obtained Canada Work Permits during the period 1990 to 2009. 1.3 million Holders of work permits are collectively represented by these 4 cohorts, as quoted by the CIC News.
The study observes that most of the TFWs departed from Canada within 2 years of obtaining the first Work permit. But it also adds that the latest Immigrant Arrivals to Canada have an increased tendency to stay back.
The report sums up that the lengths of stay were absolutely regulated. This is in spite of the popular misconception that host nations often do not have adequate control on overstays of TFWs. The type and duration of stays of TFWs are strictly controlled by the Canadian rules that govern the terms of the Work permits, it added.
A job offer is required for immigrants in order to work as a TFW in Canada. The report analyzed the TFWs who arrived in Canada through two programs. These are Overseas Mobility Program and TFWP.
The examples of TFWP programs include the Low-Skill Pilot, the Caregiver Live-in program, and Seasonal Workers for Agriculture program. Further TFWP participants were Highly-Skilled Experts recruited for contracts of short-term.
The analysis by Statistics Canada studied 4 variables to examine the impact if at all they had on the duration of TFWs in the two categories. These include specific characteristics of demography such as sex, age; social and economic conditions of source nation. It also covered regional and local economic-socio conditions and institutional factors of host nations such as regulations of the government.
