This Chapter consider the rise of temporary economic immigration in both countries since the mid-2000s. These policies respond to this changing economic and industrial context, which has been accompanied by gender stratification within temporary flows: Women are underrepresented in skilled temporary flows in both countries. However, in Canada, low-skilled temporary schemes have become an important avenue for the entrance of female immigrants, albeit with fewer rights than those entering on highly skilled temporary visas. Some attempts have been made by activists in Canada to secure greater labour rights for these low-skilled temporary immigrants. Australia, in contrast has eschewed low-skilled temporary immigration.
