June 4, 2019

The temporary work permit process available to foreign workers in British Columbia who face a real and substantial risk of abuse as a result of potential employer non-compliance with applicable federal laws or provincial laws has ended and is being replaced by the new federal program for open work permits for vulnerable workers that came into force on June 4, 2019. Any applications received before June 4, 2019, will be processed under the British Columbia Immigration Agreement 2015 – Foreign worker protection (Annex B, section 9.4).

For this reason, the related program delivery instructions, Canada–British Columbia Immigration Agreement 2015 – Foreign worker protection (Annex B, section 9.4), have been deleted.
