The Federal and Quebec Governments entered into an agreement, effective 4 August 2021, to respond to ongoing labor shortages faced in the province that have been further accentuated by the pandemic. The measures are aimed at creating flexibility in hiring foreign workers via the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP). These measures have been progressively implemented as part of an overall pilot project scheduled to run until the end of 2024.
