The Government of Quebec announced that the province will continue to pay up to $1,200 for businesses that have used lawyers or immigration consultants to hire temporary foreign workers. All business owners who used the services from lawyers can claim back up to half of their spendings, so long as the amount does not exceed $1,200. The policy that was initially announced in October 2019, helps employers to recruit foreign candidates through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) to fill the vacant high-demand occupations in the province.
