Businesses feeling pain of temporary foreign workers crackdown: survey
OTTAWA - A new survey says some businesses have been forced to move projects out of Canada because of the federal government's crackdown on temporary foreign workers.
The majority of the companies polled in the study by the Canadian Employee Relocation Council report that the crackdown is affecting their operations.
It has resulted in higher costs and long delays in the completion of critical contracts, they say.
More than a third say they've lost business opportunities because of the new restrictions, while another third report they've had to move work out of the country in the last few months.
The council is a non-profit association that promotes labour mobility and its members include some of the country's biggest companies.
The poll comes as businesses, trade organizations and labour unions plead with the government to do something about labour mobility.
