(This bill did not become law.)


This is from the published bill. The Library of Parliament often publishes better independent summaries.

This enactment amends the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act to allow officers to refuse to authorize foreign nationals to work in Canada in cases where to give authorization would be contrary to public policy considerations that are specified in instructions given by the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration.

Yes. I guess I agree with you, in certain terms, with regard to training and who should be responsible. I also like to take the side of the employers from time to time. With the implementation of Bill C-45, it basically comes down to competency. Workers have to be competent, and if they're not, in the event of an unfortunate accident, the employer can receive a lot of lawsuits and fines from the Ministry of Labour and such.

I don't like to think of it as the total responsibility of employers because the employers are in the business, let's face it, of making money and being profitable. Their forte is not necessarily training. I like to think of it as putting it back on the individual colleges; especially for the trades, put it back to the colleges. Have government support these colleges. Have government support training delivery agents and private career colleges so that the subject matter experts can deal with training. I think that's the direction we need to take. The funds go back to the training agents.

But regarding the 15 years, unfortunately, the amendments in the new legislation, Bill C-45, were too late for us. So we did have to go through that hearing.
