Last day for temporary foreign workers

A Vancouver immigration lawyer says many of his clients are struggling as permits expire for thousands of temporary foreign workers across Canada.

The Conservative government has set today as the deadline for temporary foreign workers in low-skilled jobs to either become permanent residents or leave the country.

Lawyer Richard Kurtland says many people are grappling with the realization that they’re no longer welcome in Canada after living and working in the country for years.

He adds that, while the deadline is today, there aren’t enough border services agents to find and escort every temporary foreign worker to the nearest airport.
