Canada’s Global Talent Stream to Fast Track Temporary Foreign Workers2017-06-17
The Global Talent Stream launched June 12, 2017 by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), which promises a 2-week fast-track for qualified applicants to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The Global Talent Stream is key to the IRCC Global Skills Strategy which promotes global investment in Canada to support the Government of Canada’s Innovation Agenda which offers:
- a two-week processing time for 80% of work permit applications
- work permit exemptions for highly-skilled workers on short-term work assignments and for researchers involved in a short-duration research project in Canada
- a dedicated service channel for companies looking to make large, job-creating investments in Canada
The Global Talent Stream initiative “actually helps create more Canadian jobs”
