IRCC Virtual Learning Series for Atlantic Employers

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is hosting a new series of
monthly information sessions for employers in Atlantic Canada.

If you are an employer, you can attend for free and learn about Canada’s economic
immigration programs and resources to help you attract, hire and retain global
talent. You will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Join IRCC Outreach Officers in the Atlantic, Hariana Brooks and Michael Frenette, for
one or more of these 30 to 45 minute virtual information sessions.

  • Atlantic Immigration Program: Following the success of the Atlantic Immigration
    Pilot, the government announced the creation of a permanent program in 2022. This
    program was designed to help employers in Atlantic Canada hire qualified foreign
    workers to support growth in Atlantic Canada and international graduates who want
    to stay in the region after graduation. Learn about this new permanent program,
    which will continue to be a flagship regional economic immigration program in the
    Atlantic Provinces.
  • Resources for employers: Learn about the wide variety of resources and how they
    can support you in hiring and retaining foreign talent. This session will discuss the
    role of Outreach Officers, settlement agencies, the International Mobility Workers
    Unit, the client contact centre and more.
  • Recruiting for the Global Talent: Recruitment for global talent can seem
    overwhelming however this session will provide clarity on how you can begin your
    search. Topics to be discussed include IRCCs recruitment services such as Destination
    Canada, Job Bank and employing international students in Canada.

Spring and summer sessions will focus on work permits under the temporary foreign
worker program and the International Mobility Program and the Start-Up Visa
