The Sur­rey Board of Trade’s en­gage­ment with the BC Gov­ern­ment last year was very help­ful for them to lay the ground­work for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Tem­po­rary For­eign Worker Pro­tec­tion Act, as well as to in­form the de­sign of the on­line por­tal.

The fi­nal im­ple­men­ta­tion stage is bring­ing in the re­quire­ment for TFW em­ploy­ers to reg­is­ter with the Tem­po­rary For­eign Worker Pro­tec­tion Unit. The BC Gov­ern­ment is tar­get­ing this to hap­pen in late Fall 2020. The Sur­rey Board of Trade wants to en­sure that those em­ploy­ers who need to reg­is­ter will have time to do so. The on­line on­board­ing process should not take longer than 15-20 min­utes to com­plete. There will be no charge to reg­is­ter as an em­ployer. The Sur­rey Board of Trade has a dig­i­tal in­for­ma­tion ses­sion on No­vem­ber 4 at 1pm to pro­vide an over­view of the Em­ployer Registry.
