Employment-Based Immigration Human Resources Services

Canada is actively recruiting trained, skilled foreign workers to help grow the local and national economy, to provide much-needed skills, and to provide workers to supplement an aging workforce. Corporate Human Resources Departments are challenged to stay current and in compliance with federal, territorial and provincial immigration policies and programs. The government recognizes the need for more skilled foreign workers, and Canada's IRCC has employer guidelines on hiring international workers:

Internationally trained workers (ITWs) including immigrants, refugees, international students and Canadians who trained or worked outside of the country represent a valuable source of skills and talent and a growing proportion of Canada’s talent pool.
