“You had me at Canada.”

Canada is increasingly becoming a magnet for talent. We’re experiencing a significant uptick in international students and skilled individuals arriving to work, study and live here.

Several strategies and programs are helping to attract this talent in, including the widely anticipated Global Skills Strategy, which launched on June 12. So far, the results of this program have been impressive. EventMobi, Platterz, Sheba Microsystems and Thalmic Labs have all reported success in using it to hire new employees.

Are you a high-growth startup that wants to understand the practical details involved in hiring talent from overseas? Join us to learn from other companies who have successfully leveraged the Global Talent Stream program, which forms part of the Global Skills Strategy.
