The Canadian Labour Congress has been granted the authority by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to pre-screen potential permanent residents.
It sounds too crazy to be true, but here it is in a recent press release from Canada.ca:
“Canada has launched a new temporary initiative to create a pathway to permanent residency for up to 500 out-of-status workers in the construction industry in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). These construction workers have come to Canada and made contributions to its economy and currently have limited means to regularize their status.”
Potential applicants — foreign workers who have overstayed the legal limits of their work permits in a country that has lost over 24,000 jobs in July alone — will first identify themselves to the far-left Canadian Labour Congress, who will then pass their information on to the federal government.
