Facilitating Access to Global Talent

October 22, 2019 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am


Presenter:  Sarah Finall – IRCC

IRCC Outreach officers provide targeted information to help employers address skills shortages and labour market needs when
there are not enough Canadian and Permanent Resident workers for jobs that are available.

During the session, participants will learn about IRCC permanent and temporary economic programs and supports, including
International Mobility program work permits that are exempt from a Labour Market Assessment, and Global Skills Strategy which
allows employers to hire highly skilled workers faster. There will also be information on how employers can support an employee’s
application for permanent residence.

Following the presentation there will be an opportunity for questions and interaction with the IRCC officer.
