Quebec’s foreign worker restrictions may negatively impact businesses

Quebec businesses are concerned that decreasing temporary workers could have adverse effects. Karl Blackburn, CEO of the Conseil du patronat du Quebec, counters the notion of an overabundance of temporary workers, asserting they meet labour market demands. Quebec’s Premier, François Legault, has suggested a possible referendum on immigration if his calls for a reduction in temporary immigrants are not heeded, citing pressure on social services and potential threats to the French language. Blackburn voices disapproval over the federal government’s move to reintroduce visas for certain Mexicans, a move initially supported by Quebec to curb the influx of asylum seekers. He cautions that further constraints on foreign workers could negatively impact the economy and calls for the federal government to compensate Quebec $1 billion for the costs borne by the province for asylum seeker care.
