The minister is looking forward for a program very much slander, and is also misinterpreted by the groups with the point of view having that foreign workers can easily get the Canadian jobs and may also have adverse effect on the various sector of the society like the gas sector and others.
But different groups are of viewpoint that the government have their own criteria for prioritizing the skilled workers but the business have demand for different skills, the government needs to identify those and should bring in workers to fulfill those particular shortages. According to them the vacancies available do not really need the very formal degree standards and should not actually come under skilled workers.
