Many employers say the temporary foreign worker program is the only way they can fill jobs.

'They're are a good thing for Canada and Alberta,' said Lillian Davies of Calgary Aggregate Recycling Ltd., which has hired about a dozen temporary workers from Mexico and the Philippines, and hopes to keep some in the province permanently through the province's nominee program.
