Concerns raised about employment for foreign workers in Ontario
A $15-billion electric-vehicle battery plant in Windsor, Ont., has raised concerns about potential employment for temporary foreign workers. The joint venture between Stellantis and LG Energy Solution is heavily subsidized by the federal and Ontario governments. The plant was expected to create 2,500 jobs for Canadians, but concerns have been raised about the potential influx of foreign workers for construction and staffing. The government is being urged to prioritize Canadian employment.
