NCLGA Executive Recommendation: Endorse | Endorsed by the NCLGA Membership
Whereas employers in all sectors across the province are experiencing labour shortages and face challenges filling vacancies with foreign workers; and
Whereas the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program Rural Renewal Stream enables local governments to work directly with their business communities promoting a streamlined path for skilled and unskilled workers to enter the province;
Therefore be it resolved that NCLGA and UBCM lobby the provincial government to create an economic immigration program that enables local governments to streamline application and approval to allow foreign workers to work in British Columbia.
