Auditor General Michael Ferguson discusses his report on the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The audit concluded that the program’s management by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) was not complete. The program is meant to be used by employers to fill vacancies when qualified Canadians are not available. Glenn Wheeler, principal with the AG’ s office, also testifies.

ESDC officials Louise Levonian, Paul Thompson, Leslie MacLean, and Elise Boisjoly discuss the progress their department is making to address the auditor general’s recommendations.
