Are you an employer interested in bringing skilled immigrants from overseas or connecting with global talent in Canada?

Employers can access internationally trained professionals in two general ways. Government immigration programs allow employers to proactively recruit from abroad, while the regular flow of skilled immigrants provides a local talent pool of internationally trained professionals. This Employer Learning Forum provides an overview of the options and techniques employers can use to tap into the global talent pool.

Hire Immigrants Ottawa invites you to the Employer Learning Forum on accessing global talent,  using the immigration system or recruiting locally. A panel of experts and practitioners will share information about the immigration streams and local programs available to recruit, hire and effectively integrate skilled immigrants into the workplace.

Participants can expect:

  • To learn about the Federal Fast Track and Express Entry programs
  • To learn about the local services available to recruit & integrate immigrants in the workplace
  • To gain insights from employers who have experienced the programs & resources available
  • An opportunity to network with peers, representatives of local programs and services, & skilled immigrants
