A shortage of temporary foreign workers is affecting the resorts in British Columbia. The ski industry in Western Canada foresees a busy season because of the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions and the reopening of the borders. But the lack of staff casts a shadow on these prospects. A third of the positions in the sector are still vacant. The Canadian Ski Council (CSC) warned if the resorts continue to have problems finding the staff they need, the winter season will be difficult. The CSC also asked the Federal Government to extend working holiday visas for visitors by the end of the ski season.
