Launched by the federal government in June 2017, the Global Talent Stream is a ground-breaking new program aimed to help Canadian employers while also helping to grow the economy.

The Global Talent Stream provides innovative Canadian firms with the opportunity to hire highly-skilled foreign workers in occupations with proven labour shortages. The federal government is committed to timely, predictable, and responsive service to Canadian employers to give them access to the talent they need to innovate and grow. One of the Stream’s key features is faster work permit processing of just 10 business days.

Join Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) as they provide an overview of the Global Talent Stream. During the webinar, ESDC will shed light on the Stream’s main features, how it works, which employers can benefit from it, and what its early results are. You will have the opportunity to interact with ESDC to ask your questions.

This webinar is designed for employers, policymakers, business associations, HR professionals, and immigration lawyers and consultants.
