It is my understanding a recruiter for Mexican workers has active in the area. It sounds like H1-B program in the U.S. The labor contractor (my words) is offering work in the Toronto area for several months for Mexican workers to work construction on a large housing project. He is offering to do all the paperwork associated with CAN authorities, free transportation to/from CAN, etc. etc. Sounds similar to the U.S. H1-B program that usually focusing on agricultural works and large fishing fleets.

Anyone know anything about this opportunity?

We have lots of Mexicans working on farms in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and also out West particularly in BC

There is a government program though not sure what it is called that allows for this Often see them heading home when we fly down in Nov . There have been a few unscrupulous types who have taken advantage of the program with workers living in squalid conditions and being charged most of their wages for housing etc. Quite a few articles being written about it. Read something recently that said changes were underway which would at least require contractors, farmers etc to pay them the minimum hourly wage.

As an aside one of my buddies who lives in the Niagara on the Lake area has one of them work his lawn and garden on his day off (sunday). A number of his friends also do this . I suspect he and others clear more on Sunday than they do through the rest of the week . Given they are all well off retirees I know they are paid more than the minimum hourly wage for their Sunday work

We have a lot of Mexicans that come to Manitoba to work on farms for the summer season. They are paid decent wages and good living conditions as the farms are inspected by the government and complaints have produced some large fines so things have changed that needed to.

Someone who has access to all the best facts has said many times that Mexico is sending murderers and rapists to the USA. I've heard no reports of murder or rape by the many Mexicans working in Manitoba. Am I wrong that Mexico is preferentially sending their best to us? /s

I urge anyone who might be tempted, to do their research and be very cautious about agreeing to work for any foreigner. I provide a link to a very recent horrific human trafficking case here in Canada.
