The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, delivered today on a commitment to expand pathways for temporary foreign workers by allocating an additional 2,000 spaces under the Provincial Nominee Program.
The Government of Canada is committed to an immigration system that strengthens Canada’s economy and contributes to the growth of good middle-class jobs.
