On September 19, 2011, Citizenship and Immigration Canada published Operational Bulletin 346, which authorized the recapture of unused time that would otherwise count against the time limits that are normally imposed on intracompany transferees. As a result of Operational Bulletin 346, now only periods of physical presence in Canada while holding an intracompany transferee work permit will count towards the time limits.
On August 4, 2010, the governor-general-in-council published amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations, which will adversely affect many temporary foreign workers. Although the amendments do not come into force until April 1, 2011, the changes are significant.
