Global Skills Hub is bringing the world’s top technical talent to Canada under the new federal Global Skills Strategy
By the year 2021, Canada will need to fill approximately 216,000 technology-related positions (ICTC, The Next Talent Wave: Navigating the Digital Shift - Outlook 2021). In
response to this, our government has recently launched a faster and more predictable process for
attracting top talent to Canada.
Highly-skilled workers coming to Canada on a temporary basis are
now able to benefit from two-week processing of applications for work permits and, when necessary,
temporary resident visas.
Open work permits for spouses and study permits for dependants will also
be processed in two weeks when applicable. Workers also benefit from a highly paid position with
a salary of $80,000 or above.
Find out if you qualify by submitting some basic information (name, email, years of experience,
previous experience) through our Sign Up form on the website.
Qualified applicants will be contacted by one of our ambassadors to find out more about you and optimize your resume. You will complete a technical evaluation and
a personality assessment.
Your dedicated talent ambassador will submit your completed profile to our hiring companies and
facilitate the interview scheduling. Our team will also work with you to prepare for interviews.
Once you receive an offer, we will arrange all the details for you and your family’s applications
(acceptance is approximately 2-3 weeks) and for your relocation. We will greet you upon arrival
and welcome you to Canada.

stable, personal safety, and a well-developed public education and healthcare system.
