Business 101 Series 

Carving out the Express Entry Program - Treat yourself to an overview session  

Featuring Mary Jane MacKinnon

Immigration is a very complex topic and often misunderstood. In this Business 101 Session, Mary Jane MacKinnon will provide an overview of the NS Office of Immigration and some of its key initiatives – specifically, Express Entry - Canada’s new economic immigration system coming in January 2015.

Express Entry is an immigration tool which will allow businesses to access a broader pool of qualified candidates to meet their labour market needs. It is faster, more flexible, and at no cost to employers.

Hope you can join us for informative and interactive discussion
