On June 12th, 2018, The Global Talent Stream pilot program from Canada celebrated its one year anniversary. The program still continues, even after one year, to help Canadian businesses to employ highly skilled foreign workers, who will play an important role in helping Canada to maintain its position as a global leader in innovative technology.
A Significant Landmark
The Global Talent Stream is a two year pilot program. Employers in Canada can make use of this program to employ skilled foreign talent to fill important roles in their organization and businesses.
In case you have the skills that are in demand by a Canadian employer than your case for work permit will be processed faster, which means that you can come to Canada faster and start to work here quickly.
An employer, however, need to show to the Global Talent Stream, that lasting benefits will be created for Canadian labor market by employing foreign workers. This means that only top business houses get the approval to hire through the pilot program.
It should be noted here that only a number of occupations are eligible for this stream. Three new occupations were added to this list on the one year anniversary of the program on 12th June 2018. These occupations include:
· Engineering managers – NOC 0211
· Mathematicians and Statisticians – NOC 2161
· Architecture and Science Managers – NOC 0212
Once an individual acquires sufficient amount of work experience, he or she than becomes eligible to apply for Canadian permanent residence by way of the Canadian Experience Class of the federal Express Entry immigration system.
