Temporary Foreign Workers have become an important aspect of Alberta's economy, helping to alleviate labor shortages that slow down work and drive-up costs. In recognition of language and cultural barriers, the Temporary Foreign Workers Association has launched a new confidential hotline to help workers get information about Alberta’s workplaces and worker obligations and rights.
The toll-free hotline, 1(888) 366-0194, will allow workers to get assistance on matters relating to compensation and immigration requirements.
Please contact the Town Office at (403) 664-3511 if you have any questions or require any further information on Oyen and area.
