Research participants are required for a study on work and immigration, “Open for Business: Temporary Foreign Workers and Labour Law Reform in Saskatchewan”. The purpose of this research is to understand the economic and social significance of Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.

The study involves interviews with workers, business leaders, immigration consultant, recruiters, and union officials who have experience with Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program or the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program. Your participation will include an interview that may take about 30 – 60 minutes in the location of your choosing. Phone and Skype interviews are possible as well. If you prefer, a guest may also attend the interview. Should you so desire, you will receive a copy of the project’s results.

At no point during the survey will you be required to self-identify unless you so choose. Your identity will be kept strictly confidential.
