Ottawa slow to monitor temporary foreign worker program compliance

Not exactly inspiring confidence in government management and pre-dates the current government which, to its credit, started monitoring:

Before 2010, not a single government worker was responsible for monitoring compliance with the program, even as about 200 federal employees processed employers’ applications to bring in foreign workers.

Records show that it was not until 2010 that the federal government assigned staff to monitor the program and investigate potential violations. The number rose from 24 to 29 the next year and then dropped to 14 in 2012 and 2013 before rising to 43 in 2014.
