No more foreign workers for employers linked to sex trade: immigration minister
By The Canadian Press | The Canadian Press – 19 hours ago
CALGARY – The federal government is no longer allowing employers linked to the sex trade to hire strippers, escorts and massage parlour workers from outside the country.
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney says permits for temporary foreign workers will no longer be processed if applications come from sex-related businesses.
He says the government wants to protect such workers from being exploited or abused.
The measure is part of the government’s plan to combat human trafficking.
Kenney says Canadians want an immigration system that is open and fair — not one that can be used to exploit people.
The move is effective immediately.
