  • WHEN A company is bought by or merges with another company, a lot of things about the employer can change, even its name. These changes can have significant effects on employees, particularly those who are immigrants working in Canada under work permits. Many foreign workers have permits or agreements that relate to their specific employer and any changes in ownership or operations can have consequences on the validity of the permits and the ability of the workers to remain employed in Canada.
