An information session led by our partner, People Corporation

Foreign Temporary Workers and Healthcare Insurance

We invite you to join us for an information session led by our partner, People Corporation, to discuss the current labour shortage challenges in the manufacturing industry, the requirement to provide healthcare coverage to foreign workers, and the significance of the Foreign Workers Canada Health Plan (FWCHP) and the People Corporation Foreign Workers Inpatriate Program (PC Inpat Plan).

Wednesday, May 15, 2024, 11:00am EST

Canadian manufacturers are currently facing labour shortages due to the lack of Canadian citizens or permanent residents available to fill open positions. To address this issue, the federal government established the Temporary Foreign Workers Program (TFWP) to assist Canadian employers in finding workers with specialized skills when suitable candidates cannot be found among the local population. Employers who hire temporary foreign workers must provide them with health insurance that covers the waiting period for provincial healthcare eligibility. While the legal requirement is to cover workers for this waiting period, many employers are offering coverage for the entire duration of the workers' contracts to attract and retain talent.
