Canada to launch Global Skills Strategy in June - Summary
The Government of Canada will launch its new Global Skills Strategy on June 12 to make it easier for top companies to attract top global talent to the country.
The Global Talent Stream of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program will also launch on June 12 as part of the strategy.
This initiative will help high-growth Canadian companies attract the specialized global talent they need to innovate and grow by providing a faster and more predictable streamlined service.
It will also assist Canadian firms in filling in-demand occupations where there is a demonstrated gap in the Canadian labour market.
Under the new stream, a Global Talent List of eligible high-demand occupations is being developed in consultation with labour market experts and key stakeholders.
