I am unemployed. Due to the recent economic down turn, there are many persons like myself who are also unemployed, while there are many work permit holders occupying positions where I could otherwise be gainfully employed. At present there is no reason why HRDC and Immigration should continue to issue 1 year working holiday permits or sponsored work permits while there are a surplus of Skilled Canadians looking for work in this very small industry with limited opening every year. Please take immediate action to remedy this situation. Thank You
