IRCC extended work permits to family members of temporary foreign workers

On December 2, 2022, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced new instructions for employers and temporary workers. Canada is expanding its work permit program to include family members of temporary foreign workers. This will help address labour shortages by making it easier for employers to find the needed workers. Effective January 2023, Canada will temporarily expand work eligibility to spouses and dependent children of all ages for two years. It is estimated that this will offer working opportunities to the family members of more than 200,000 foreign workers. This initiative provides a greater chance for foreign workers who want to come to Canada and employers seeking labour solutions.
