Employment Minister Jason Kenney said the government introduced further changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, including a new $275 processing fee and additional advertising requirements. The advertising requirements will double the length and reach of employers’ advertising to increase Canadians’ awareness of available jobs, a release said Wednesday. The Employment and Social Development Department said English and French are now the only languages that can be identified as a requirement in job advertisements by employers looking for temporary foreign workers (with exceptions for jobs such as a tour guide or translator). The government announced initial changes to the program this spring, including suspending the accelerated labour market opinion process, which it introduced last year to help speed up the process for companies seeking to hire foreign workers. At the time, the Entertainment Software Association of Canada said the changes were a setback in its efforts to use the program to hire gaming industry professionals. The release Wednesday said the $275 fee will apply to labour market opinion applications, which companies use to bring foreign workers into Canada. The additional changes to the program became effective July 31, 2013, the release said. The government said it will consider further reforms to balance the needs of employers and Canadian workers. Kenney, formerly the minister of immigration, visited Silicon Valley in May to promote Canada's visas for entrepreneurs and encourage companies and startups to set up shop in Canada.
