Migrant Workers and the TPP

From: The Trans-Pacific Partnership and Canada

$2.80

Canada’s temporary entry commitments in the TPP cover a wider range

of occupations and sectors than NAFTA, and for the first time the system

would be extended to countries such as Australia and Japan. While there

are benefits to some workers from easier access to jobs in other countries,

these arrangements are not risk free.
