Statistics show the number of temporary foreign workers employed in Windsor has more than doubled since 2009.
The website for the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration shows 614 were employed in 2009. That number jumped to 1,550 in 2012, the last year for which data is available on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website.
The increase puzzles Mike Moffatt, a business professor at Western University in London, Ont.
Moffatt crunched the numbers of temporary foreign workers in southwestern Ontario.
He found use of them is on the rise, not just in Windsor, but across the region. At the same time, Moffatt says there is really no need for them.
