Jason Kenney, Minster of Employment and Social Development announced on April 24, 2014 that there is an immediate moratorium on the Food Services Sector’s access to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

  • Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) will not process any new or pending Labor Market Opinion (LMO) applications related to the Food Services Sector.
