I might be the only one, but has anyone else noticed a recent surfeit of government-sponsored ads saying that "a great work experience abroad might be closer than you think"? Seems to be encouraging people to seek work opportunities overseas.
What's the rationale? We don't have surplus labour, and these ads aren't free. Maybe they think there will be a high rate of return to Canada, with accompanying spillovers? Who knows. Personally, I'd axe the program.
NOTE: The ad in question has kind of a sing-song tone; "this could be your friday night....and your monday morning". I'd be indebted for a video link.
