WHO  ARE  WE?

We represent thousands of Canadian and Permanent Resident construction workers that have been left unemployed because temporary foreign workers are hired at artificially low wage rates. #OurWorkersOurFuture is a coalition of Canadian construction industry workers who believe that the Temporary Foreign Worker Program should be scrapped.

HOW  IS  THIS  UNFAIR?

ADVERTISING JOBS AT BELOW-MARKET RATES

By advertising jobs at below-market rates, construction companies claim that no Canadian workers are available.

HIRING TEMPORARY NON-CANADIAN WORKERS AT LOWER WAGES

They then use the Temporary Foreign Workers Program to hire temporary non-Canadian workers at lower wages.

EXPLOITING TEMPORARY FOREIGN WORKERS

Temporary Foreign Workers are vulnerable to exploitation by employers because they don’t have the same rights as Canadians or skilled immigrant workers.

OUR PETITION

While Canada talks about building a stronger economy, many employers in the construction industry have been gaming the system to exclude Canadian workers. By advertising jobs at below-market rates, construction companies claim that no Canadian workers are available.

They then use the Temporary Foreign Workers Program to hire temporary non-Canadian workers at lower wages. Temporary Foreign Workers can also be abused by employers because they don’t have the same rights as Canadians or skilled immigrant workers.

We are telling Ottawa that there is no shortage of qualified and skilled Canadians ready and willing to do the work. 

TAKE ACTION

Sign our petition to stand in solidarity with thousands of Canadian construction workers so they can support their families and to continue to build our country.
