Wednesday, April 29, 2020 | 1 PM CT/ 2 PM ET | Duration: 45 Minutes

This crash course with Envoy’s Canadian experts Marina Falkina and Jim Yang will teach you the basics of the Canadian immigration system, including:

  • Common work visa types
  • The Global Talent Stream
  • Labour market testing requirements

Canada’s immigration policies have made it an attractive destination for top U.S. employers and their employees, and companies from across the world are looking to expand in the region thanks to its strong economic growth. Our Immigration Trends report found that 51% of employers are considering expanding to the country. However, to start operations, talent needs to get on the ground quickly, making it important for HR teams to understand the policies and processes put in place by the Canadian government.
