Wages for temporary foreign workers
The Federal government states that the wages for the foreign temporary workers who are working have to get the same salary as the wages that Canadian citizens and permanent resident employees of Canada working for the same job for the exact work location. Also, the experience and skills must be the same.
There are two streams under the Temporary foreign workers’ program

Canadian official statistics for large job opportunities
At the beginning of this year, 2022, the Canadian official statistics stated a high number of jobs popped up in February. The reason was that the Canadian government eased the pandemic restrictions.

Ontario and British Columbia provinces have seen a rise in the number of employed workers during February, for 0.8 percent, which made these two provinces stand out as big players. Quebec also has seen a growth in employing foreign workers of 0.9 percent in the same February.
