OTTAWA - The feds will no longer process temporary foreign workers who arrive in Canada to strip, work in massage parlours or as escorts.
Human Resources Minister Diane Finley says temporary foreign workers who come to Canada to work in sex-trade related businesses are especially at risk of being used or abused.
"Our government is committed to protecting all workers from abuse, exploitation and demeaning work," she said.
The Conservative government announced the move Wednesday.
It will take effect July 14.
