What surprises me more is your reaction. Outsourcing isn't new. I'm in IT and this has been going on globally for at least a dozen years. You're just lucky it didn't happen sooner in your region.
However, a Toronto immigration lawyer says there is no loophole in any visa category that allows companies to displace Canadians who are able to do the work.
“It should not happen,” Mario Bellisimo told Go Public. “The overarching legal standard is to supplement and to fill labour shortages or to bring job creation and retention, knowledge transfer to Canada, not the opposite."
The Bank of Canada (French: Banque du Canada) is Canada's central bank. The bank was founded by the Bank of Canada Act on July 3, 1934, as a privately owned corporation. In 1938, the bank became a Crown corporation, belonging to the monarch in right of Canada. The Minister of Finance holds the entire share capital issued by the bank. "Ultimately, the Bank is owned by the Minister of Finance on behalf of Her Majesty in right of Canada."
The role of the bank is to "promote the economic and financial well-being of Canada.Text" The responsibilities of the bank are: monetary policy; sole issuing authority of Canadian banknotes; the promotion of a safe, sound financial system within Canada; and funds management and central banking services "for the federal government, the Bank and other clients."

Harper says publicly it's unacceptable. This is to deceive Canadians into believing that he is on their side.
In fact, it was his government that implemented the new rules. This is so the big state-owned Chinese companies that are mining coal, and tar sands, can bring in Chinese nationals to work instead of Canadians. The new rules also allow the companies to pay less than the Canadian minimum wage.
Seeing this, other corporations are starting to take advantage of these changes too. They ask why should the Chinese state-owned companies be the only ones allowed to hire cheap foreign workers? Harper didn't see this coming due to his inexperience and incompetence. He must go.

Right. And one of the employment requirements at a BC mine was that the workers be able to speak Chinese, so they brought in foreign workers. We have to speak up. I don't know how much good it will do but I did write to the email@example.com to voice my outrage.
