Mexico suspends sending temp workers to Canada in wake of Covid-19 deaths (The Canadian Press)


Mexico won’t send any more temporary foreign workers to Canada until it has more clarity on why two died due to Covid-19, the country’s ambassador to Canada said Monday. The temporary ban means that up to 5,000 Mexican workers are currently waiting to come to Canada, The Canadian Press reported.

“It’s so we can reassess with the federal authorities, provinces and farmers why this happened and if there is anything to correct,” Ambassador from Mexico Juan Jose Gomez Camacho said in an interview.
