Hiring highly-skilled foreign workers will be fast and efficient under GTS

Once the GTS gets implemented the Canadian organizations will be able to hire the talented skilled workers from overseas in an organized and fast manner. At now the two weeks visa processing time is in the proposal. A high demand occupation list, i.e. Global Talent List is being prepared at now in coordination with labour market experts and other professionals, which will be published before the launch of Global Talent Stream after next couple of months. The technology industry of Canada is expected to reap the maximum benefits out of the new Global Talent Stream. It will help the tech firms to hire the talented professionals and workers from overseas more quickly and efficiently to compete with the global organizations, says Benjamin Bergen, ED of the CCI (Council of the Canadian Innovators). The Innovators have praised the two week processing time for the application received for work permit and other steps taken by the government to make the processing smooth and trouble free and to help the tech sector of the country.

Other Key Proposals under Global Skill Strategy

Apart from the processing time of two weeks for a few work permit applications, the federal government of Canada has also got some additional plans in their kitty. The government plans to form a specific service for the organizations wish to do considerable investment in job creation in the country. The government also plans to issue the short term visa (i.e. 30 days) to work in Canada without work permit, as part of key proposals under Global Skill Strategy.
