Every year, Canadian employers seek to address labour and skill shortages through the temporary recruitment and relocation of skilled workers from abroad.
On the surface it would seem that foreign recruitment offers employers a simple and valuable opportunity to get the job done. However, bringing a temporary foreign worker to Canada is not without risk. If not undertaken properly, the foreign worker may face unnecessary delays in entering Canada or be denied the opportunity to work in Canada altogether. It is, therefore, vitally important that employers fully familiarize themselves with the Canadian immigration process to avoid impairing the operation of their business.
By way of background, our firm’s Immigration Practice Group was established in order to provide our many international business clients with a comprehensive service offering. In order to facilitate the entry of foreign workers to Canada, it is important to recognize whether your representation has a full understanding of your business and the corporate, employment, regulatory (including professional licensing requirements), workers’ compensation and tax-related issues associated with transferring a foreign worker to Canada. We pride ourselves in providing our clients with comprehensive business immigration solutions. Our record of excellence speaks for itself.
This blog is dedicated to providing our readership with Canadian immigration news and insight, with a particular focus on business immigration. We will cover a broad range of business immigration topics in order to provide you with a better understanding of the different immigration categories, policies and strategies that domestic and foreign businesses are most likely to confront. Furthermore, we will be identifying key concepts and issues that potential applicants should be aware of when seeking to enter Canada to work.
