1 Min Read

VANCOUVER, April 23 (Reuters) - The Canadian unit of McDonald's Corp has suspended all of its applications under the country's temporary foreign worker program as its undergoes a third party audit on its use, the restaurant chain said on Wednesday.

The move comes after the fast-food giant was criticized in media reports in recent weeks about its use of the Canadian government plan, which allows companies to bring in foreign workers for hard-to-fill jobs.

The restaurant chain said the freeze will not impact the temporary foreign workers it employs who already have work permits. (Reporting by Julie Gordon; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson and Meredith Mazzilli)
