The challenges encountered by immigrant-serving agencies in addressing the health of temporary foreign workers

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This study sought to examine the challenges encountered by immigrant-serving agencies in meeting the health needs of temporary foreign workers and their families in one Canadian province. We interviewed eleven representatives of immigrant serving agencies and two policy makers. Some of the challenges that agencies face in delivering programs and services for temporary foreign workers and their families include the time required to build trust with this population, temporary foreign workers’ reluctance to use services due to fear that it will affect their immigration status, and the emotional labour associated with working with temporary foreign workers.
