Although this rarely happens to the Brits who come over here this article and many others available highlights some of the not so nice aspects of being a foreign worker in Canada. This happens all over Canada.

Any advice would be hugely appreciated

Thanks
Totally depends on what type of engineer.

Electrical and Electronics Engineers are on the fast track. Approved in as little as 5 days!

Here's the list of Expedited-LMO qualified jobs:

Eh? The E-LMO program hasn't been in place for a couple of years! That website is incredibly out of date. http://www.rhdcc-hrsdc.gc.ca/eng/wor.../endelmo.shtml

The new 'A-LMO' program which is being discussed doesn't have a specific list of jobs. Here is the info for Chaddsuk on it - http://www.hrsdc.gc.ca/eng/workplace...actsheet.shtml

So, as a foreigner, one can get a work permit to work in Tim Hortons?

Just seems that, on the one hand, we are well educated/trained professionals jumping through hoops to get into Canada under the FSW scheme and yet, on the other hand, it appears that three Mexican nationals are the beneficiaries of federally issued work permits enabling them to work in a fast food chain.

Am I missing something here?

Yes, in fact Tim Hortons used to have (not sure if they still do) pre-approved LMO's, so they're easiest than most to get a TWP for! It's the usual thing of 'lack of applicants from own country to do menial jobs'.

Unless in Calgary where they were offering $19 an hour a while ago.
