Alberta aims to more than double its tourism economy by 2035, launching the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program’s Tourism and Hospitality Stream for foreign hospitality workers seeking permanent residency in Canada. Despite high demand since its March 1 launch, Alberta Hospitality and Lodging Association CEO Tracy Douglas-Blowers notes a decrease in job vacancies. Eligible workers must have at least six months of full-time experience and a permanent job offer. However, concerns have been raised about the program increasing workers’ dependency on employers, potentially leading to exploitation.
