Provide Immigration Input re: Global Talent Occupations List (TIME SENSITIVE)
Further to Employment and Social Development Canada’s (ESDC) recent announcement that the Global Talent Stream pilot has become a permanent program, it is again reviewing its Global Talent Occupations List (GTOL). As outlined, occupations on this list are eligible for Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIAs) without proof of Canadian recruitment and for rapid, two week processing. ESDC is seeking insight and labour market information from employers as outlined in this survey.
