Immigration Symposia
Share |

The government of Canada has unveiled its new Global Skills Strategy (GSS),  which is intended to help attract highly qualified talent from around the world. The government has also announced a new pilot project “Global Talent Stream” under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program

These new programs will significantly alter Canada’s economic immigration programs.

To help employers navigate the new rules, CERC is hosting various symposiums across Canada to help Mobility Professionals navigate these changes.

Senior government officials and immigration experts will be presenting. These events will attract senior business leaders and decision makers from many of Canada’s leading employers. To date we have completed events in Toronto and Calgary.
