B.C. Vancouver Board of Trade Business & Immigration Seminar:
HELP WANTED: Foreign workers may be the solution to your [business] staffing issues
Jeffrey S. Lowe, Chief Inspirational Officer, Lowe and Company, Canadian Immigration & Business Lawyers
Craig K. Natsuhara, Senior Associate, Davis & Company LLP
One of the major issues facing businesses today is the shortage of skilled workers. The booming economy has brought unemployment to historic lows and this economic strength, when combined with demographic trends such as the aging workforce and inter-provincial migration, has led to a serious skills shortage in B.C.
Companies need to find innovative solutions to address this problem and foreign workers may be a promising option. But how do you sort your way through the maze of applications for Labour Market Opinions, Work Permits, Provincial Nominee Programs, NAFTA Work Permits and at the same time deal with multiple government agencies? It can be overwhelming to say the least.
This seminar will introduce you to the various routes you can take to bring foreign workers into the country. It will provide an overview of the options available, how long the different routes take and what procedures are involved.
You will learn:
* Timing and scheduling for bringing foreign workers into the country
* How to recruit and bring in foreign trade workers
* How to bring accountants and other professionals in under NAFTA
* Options to hire or retain foreign workers who are already in Canada
* Permanent residence versus temporary working status
* 10 myths about hiring foreign workers
* How to deal with complications
Who should attend:
Company senior management, business owners, human resource managers, in-house counsel, headhunters, recruiters and others who face the challenge of finding skilled employees to fill vacant positions.
