Bringing in global talent doesn’t have to be difficult. Join Immigration Lawyer David Nurse from McInnes Cooper for our upcoming Info4Impact and walk away with the knowledge, resources and tactics you need to navigate international hiring.

It has never been a better time for ICT companies to attract global talent. Join David as he demystifies barriers and challenges within Canada’s immigration system and identifies positive trends on the horizon for Canadian employers.

In this session, you will learn about: 

  • The move to online platforms - significantly improving processing times for permanent resident applications.
  • New application guides developed by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada
  • New programs available to help secure international talent – such as the Global Talent Stream, specifically designed for employers in the IT sector, or the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program.

Join us to hear about the opportunities and get your questions answered!
