Migrant Workers and the TPP

From: The Trans-Pacific Partnership and Canada


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.
