Alberta’s new pilot program bans foreign workers in 29 high-skilled occupations


A new pilot program has been launched by Alberta which includes banning of hiring temporary foreign workers in one of 29 high-skilled occupations by Canadian employers. Applications through the Temporary Foreign Worker program for these occupations will be placed on a “refusal to process list” and will be redirected to available local workers coming in one of these prohibited occupations. The federal government will be looking into this two year pilot program and, if successful, might be implemented in other provinces or federally. The jobs included in the 29 banned occupations include engineers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, construction, and truck drivers. The selection of these particular jobs was based on the unemployment in Alberta and may be adjusted as time goes on.
