Description

Immigration Update for Employers

How can current federal and provincial immigration programs help with your immediate and ongoing talent needs?

Representatives from IRCC, ESDC, and the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program will review key programs, their requirements, and tips for success.

During this session, employers will receive updates on:

  • Programs to hire skilled trades talent, in-demand occupations (such as data analytics, software development, interactive media), intermediate-skilled workers for the agricultural and meat processing industries, as well as unique and specialized talent

  • Programs that support recent graduates and young professionals from other countries to come to work in Canada

  • Guidelines around international students (and their families) working in Canada while studying, working after program completion, and transitioning to permanent residence status

  • Local resources to inform and prepare potential immigrants and their families prior to and upon arrival


This session is designed for employers. Educators and agency representatives are also welcome to attend. Registrants will be asked to identify any particular area of interest and/or questions you would like addressed to help ensure this session is relevant to your needs.
