Dear Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs) and Permanent Residents (former TFWs)
A team of researchers from University of Ottawa will be conducting interviews about your work experiences in Canada and becoming (or trying to become) a Permanent Resident in Canada. The sharing of experiences is open to current TFWs and Permanent Residence who used to be TFWs. The information you share will be absolutely confidential.
To participate, it is ideal if you currently have or have previously had an Approved Labour Market Opinion (LMO). However, exceptions can be made for participants on different temporary work permits (will be determined on a case-by-case basis).
There are some benefits to participating:
1) Your work-life experiences will help us to understand TFW issues and to contribute to better policies in the future for this program.
2) Each person will be given $25.00 for participating.
You are invited to participate in a one-on-one interview which would take approximately 1 – 1 ½ hours.
