Foreign talent welcome under Canada's Global Skills Strategy

The federal government’s new Global Skills Strategy shows Canada is open for business, Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman tells AdvocateDaily.com.

In addition to creating a new stream for the processing of labour market assessments under the Temporary Foreign Workers program, the strategy also makes a string of changes to work permit requirements and processing times for highly skilled applicants.

“I think these are very positive changes, which send a clear message that Canada is open for business and not afraid to bring in foreign talent,” says Seligman, principal of immigration law boutique Seligman Professional Corporation.
