The Global Talent Stream Process

For Workers

Start by Booking an Immigration Consultation.

Through your Consultation, our Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants will help you to determine if you and your family meet the general requirements of the Global Talent Stream to come to Canada under a Job Offer made by an Employer in the Stream’s Category B. They will prepare a detailed quote and immigration path for you.

Global talent stream process

After the consultation, you can prepare your Worker Profile online through Clearport’s website.

Through Clearport, you will also receive access to SRT, our English Language Assessment and Improvement tool. SRT-the Success Readiness Tool will accurately assess each English skill (Listening, Speaking, Writing and Reading) and precisely detect any gaps you may have. It will also create a free Personalized Learning Plan for you, targeting only your gaps, with online lessons and activities you can use to improve.

Then, SRT will let you test again at no extra cost to measure your progress (you can test Listening and Reading 5 times, and Speaking and Writing two times). You can use SRT to test anytime, without waiting to book a test. You can use SRT to test online anywhere using a PC, Laptop or Notebook (not available on tablets or smartphones), with a good microphone and speakers or headset.

Your SRT English scores can be added to your Profile. Your Profile, Resume and English Scores will be compiled in a Job Application. This application will be ready to be submitted to Employers under the Global Talent Stream; having your English Scores included in the application will make you a more attractive candidate.

Based on this Job Application, Employers will interview you to determine the fit between you and the job (i.e., that your experience, skills, and profile match the requirements for the position). Once an Employer makes you a Job Offer, our Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants will prepare your Temporary Resident Visa and Work Permit application.

After your application is approved, your Visa will be issued. With this, you will be ready to travel to Canada, where your Work Permit will be issued at the Port of Entry (POE), the airport that you first arrive in Canada.

Then, you will start working in Canada!

For Employers

To hire Temporary Foreign Workers through the Global Talent Stream, Employers need to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This application is to obtain Government approval to hire Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs).

The Global Talent Stream also requires Employers to develop a Labour Market Benefits Plan (LMBP). This plan is to demonstrate to the Government that the Employer is committed to activities that will have lasting, positive impacts on the Canadian labour market. Progress Reviews of this Plan will be conducted annually by the Government, to assess how well is the Employer meeting its commitments. These Reviews are additional to all compliance-related activities conducted under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. Labour Market Benefits Plan (LMBP) examples for Employers are:

LMBP Mandatory Benefit

Category B Employers must have Investment in skills and training for Canadians & Permanent Residents as Mandatory Benefit. Activities that they can use to create this benefit to the Canadian labour market can include, for example:

  • Establishing / Enhancing partnerships with local or regional Post-Secondary Institutions or other organizations that support training & skills development (i.e., give Post-Secondary Institutions free licenses or access to specialized software to train students on key industry tools);
  • Provide paid Co-Op or Internship opportunities at the firm; and
  • Participate in work-integrated learning or other federal and provincial skills and training programs.

LMBP Complementary Benefits

Category B Employers must have Two Complementary Benefits to the Canadian labour market. These can include, for example, Job Creation and Knowledge Transfer:

Job creation

Track the number of jobs either directly connected to the Temporary Foreign Worker(s) hired or the overall job growth within the company.

Knowledge Transfer

Demonstrate how the Foreign Worker will transfer knowledge to Canadians and Permanent Residents, either directly (i.e., directly training Canadians or permanent residents) or indirectly (i.e., Foreign Worker improving the company’s good and services or business practices).
