Immigration During a Pandemic

June 28, 2022 by Carly Perryman, Clay Williams, Tanvir Gill

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the flow of foreign workers which has impacted business in our communities, as well as across the country and continues to. At FH&P Lawyers the immigration department has been working diligently with businesses and workers across the world to assist where possible and speed up potential workers' application.

Canada has recently announced that as of July 1st, most of the immigration programs will reopen that were closed due to the pandemic. These programs will help bring foreign workers back into the country and into the Okanagan hopefully in time for the fall harvest.

In this episode of the Law Talk podcast, hosts Clay Williams & Tanvir Gill welcome Carly Perryman who is a paralegal in the FH&P immigration department. Together they discuss immigration issues and how these issues are affecting business in the Okanagan.
