CERC has been working to improve processes for economic immigration, temporary foreign workers and intra-company transfers for several years. Since 2012 CERC has been playing a lead role with several industry groups and business associations in raising concerns about changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and proposed changes to the rules for intra-company transfers. CERC meets regularly with the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration and government officials who are responsible for these programs to discuss our concerns and offer constructive suggestions for improvement.
