This is a Request for Proposals for collaborative research programs on the labour market impacts related to temporary foreign workers’ participation in the Canadian workforce. The research will complement the current evaluation of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, which is underway. It is anticipated that two contracts will be awarded in the amount of $85,000 each. The contractor will utilize multiple data sources, including the Canadian Employer-Employee Dynamics Database, which contains data that can be linked from multiple data files originating from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, Canada Revenue Agency, and Employment and Social Development Canada. This database is accessible through Statistics Canada to perform analysis on the impact of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. Findings from the research are expected to be disseminated to various audiences (e.g., policy-makers, academics, parliamentarians, practitioners, general public, etc.).
