“On November 8, 2018, British Columbia’s government passed Bill 48, the Temporary Foreign Worker Protection Act (the “Act“). While the measures included in the Act will not come into effect until the government issues additional regulations next year, employers that rely on temporary foreign workers may want to familiarize themselves with their forthcoming legal responsibilities.
The Act establishes a registry for recruiters and employers of temporary foreign workers. Enrollment requires that foreign worker recruiters be individually licensed. Similarly, employers of temporary foreign workers will be required to be certified before recruiting the services of a temporary foreign worker. The exact process by which recruiters and employers will apply and be licensed or certified has yet to be defined”.
