Facilitating Access to Global Talent: Attend a presentation by an Outreach Officer of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) on Wednesday, February 19 at 1:30 pm at the Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce (2nd floor boardroom, 91 Baker Street, Nelson).
- IRCC Outreach officers can provide targeted information to help employers address skills shortages and labour market needs when there are not enough Canadian and Permanent Resident workers for jobs that are available.
- Participants will learn about IRCC permanent and temporary economic programs and supports, including International Mobility program work permits that are exempt from a Labour Market Assessment, and Global Skills Strategy which allows employers to hire highly skilled workers faster. There will also be information on how employers can support an employee’s application for permanent residence.
- Following the approximately 40 minute presentation will be an opportunity for questions.
