In April 2013, one of Canada’s largest banks brought in Indian foreign workers and one of the employees in the bank went public stating that he was asked to train foreign workers in order to replace him, which introduced the terms off-shoring and out-sourcing, resulting in job loss in Canada. Employers are to first hire Canadians before reaching out to the foreign worker community in order to protect the Canadian labour market.

The temporary foreign worker program has focused on the labour market opinion confirming that there was a thorough search made of the labour market to first hire a Canadian.
