Passports and Parkas: Canadian Immigration Issues for Employers with Foreign Employees

Event Dates and Times

4/24/2018
Online Event
The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.



Overview:
Canadian immigration law has undergone, and continues to undergo, profound changes, impacting the ability of employers to transfer or recruit foreign workers to Canada. Navigating the maze of corporate immigration requirements can be overwhelming, and failing to recognize the nuances can have serious consequences.
This session will provide you with the latest on corporate immigration measures as well as "tricks of the trade" for relocating personnel to Canada, either on short-term or long-term assignments. Topics will include:

Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIAs)-what they are, how to get them, and how to avoid them
The International Mobility Program (IMP)-what it is, and how to take advantage of it
Specific IMP program reviews including:
Intra-Company Transfers (ICT) [requirements differ from U.S. ICTs]
Free Trade Agreement professionals, including:
NAFTA
GATS
CETA -The new Canada/European Union Free Trade Agreement!
'Reciprocal Benefit' Applications
The Global Talent Stream
Inadmissibility Issues (stricter than the U.S.!)
The straight goods on Business Visitors -don't get caught unprepared
Ongoing compliance requirements, and the consequences of failure to adhere to the requirements


For any organization that needs to bring foreign workers to Canada, this program will be essential.

Why should you Attend: Canadian immigration law provides, on one hand, ever-stricter requirements to hire or transfer key foreign personnel to Canada, and on the other hand, opportunities to secure work authorization for foreign workers for whom U.S. work permits may be unavailable.

In terms of the barriers in Canadian immigration law, failure to secure the correct status or maintain the onerous compliance requirements of Canadian law can lead to serious repercussions for any corporation. In addition to the possible inability of the foreign worker to enter, or carry out his/her function in, Canada, employers can face significant fines, the loss of the right to hire further foreign workers, or even 'blacklisting' on the Canadian government website.

In terms of positive developments, Canada now offers the 'Global Talent Strategy' for various high skilled or high-tech workers, along with other work permit categories not available in the U.S., including, among others, 'Reciprocal Benefit', and various classifications under the new Canada/European Union Free Trade Agreement. These programs may allow corporations to more readily bring certain foreign workers to Canada, and bypass U.S. hurdles. Being unaware of the possibilities means losing out on the possibility of using these opportunities for your business.

Find out how to navigate the Canadian immigration system and recognize the issues that need to be considered -negative and positive - before, during, and after any foreign worker travel or long-term assignment. Avoid the problems, and take advantage of the beneficial programs. Attend this program to find out how!

Areas Covered in the Session:

Fundamental Understanding of Canadian immigration system
This program will provide attendees to understand the overall structure of the Canadian immigration system (vis-à-vis temporary work permits)

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum
Experience the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci through 36 machines based on his visionary designs. Each machine has been faithfully constructed from Leonardo's notebooks by a modern team of scientists and craftsman in the heart of the Renaissance, Florence, Italy.

Set the machines in motion. Explore the range of mechanical principles Leonardo employed. Set the mind of the ultimate Renaissance man artwork through his notes and drawings. Compare Leonardo's designs with today's innovations.

The machines are grouped into four sections, based upon applications linked to the elements, which held a strong fascination for Leonardo Da Vinci: Fire, Water, Earth and Air.
