CANADA: Occupations added and removed from Global Talent Stream 

On 12 June 2018, the Canadian government made some changes to the Global Talent Occupations List.

The following occupations have been added to the list: engineering managers, architecture and science managers, and mathematicians and statisticians.

The following occupations have been removed from the list: Electrical and electronics engineering technologists and technicians.

The Global Talent Stream gives eligible employers access to a new streamlined process. Category B is one of two categories of the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) application that allows employers to hire highly-skilled foreign workers without undergoing a recruitment process. 

Employers intending to hire highly-skilled foreign workers through the Global Talent Stream are required to work with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) to develop a Labour Market Benefits Plan that demonstrates their commitment to activities that will have a lasting and positive impact on the Canadian labour market.

 

How does this affect the client?

Employers intending to hire highly-skilled foreign workers in newly added professions can now apply for a recruitment-exempt LMIA and work permits. Employers will no longer be able to request an LMIA for electrical and electronics engineering technologists and technicians. According to the Canadian government, these occupations are no longer in demand in the Canadian labour market.
