Craig Kitching is the president of the Kitching Group which operates the Subway franchises in Kenora and many others inside Winnipeg. He was hesitant to discuss his company use of temporary foreign workers because of the political fire storm currently surrounding the issue in Canada. But he says the Kenora Subways are likely to lose people if the program isn reinstated quickly.

The federal government decision to suspend the Temporary Foreign Workers Program has left some Kenora employers uncertain of how the decision will affect their businesses. Kenora Subway and Tim Horton restaurant locations both make use of the program and are staffed in part by workers brought to the community primarily from the Philippines and a few from Mexico.

This is the case for at least one Filipino Subway employee in Kenora whose Labour Market Opinion is about to expire and can no longer be renewed.
Federal Employment Minister Jason Kenney announced on Thursday, April 24, that the program, which is designed to allow employers to bring in foreign workers to fill jobs which they can find Canadians to do, will be suspended while the government investigates allegations of employers abusing the program.
