Global Skills Strategy: A Game-Changer for Employers in Canada


The Government of Canada’s
Global Skills Strategy is dedicated to attracting the world’s best and
brightest talent for your Canadian business. We’re helping Canadian businesses grow
by making it quicker and easier to bring highly skilled
global talent into the country. Employers using the Global Talent Stream
and workers applying for work permits can get
their applications approved in 2 weeks. Fast processing,
along with personalized customer service, is what sets the Global Skills Strategy apart. Investment-focused agencies across Canada
are the first port of call for businesses wanting to take advantage of the Global Skills Strategy’s
enhanced client service. Invest Ottawa
is one of those referral partners. Canada needs to be
on the cutting edge of innovation. There’s competition around the world
and if you do find a highly skilled person, likely they are looking everywhere. And if we’re not there, out of the gate quick with a really easy process,
we are going to lose them. One highly skilled technician from Brazil
enabled Pillar5 Pharma in the small community of Arnprior, Ontario
to expand and hire local employees. And the company is still growing. The company that I used to work for, we sold the machine
to Pillar5 Pharma here in Arnprior. I was the software developer
for this machine, and I came here
through the Global Talent Stream. It was pretty fast. Having Diego
allows us to increase our staffing. Part of our talent experiences is
to bring in some co-ops and some new grads and we see the opportunity where Diego can
transfer his knowledge to those individuals so that we can continue the lengthy,
what we will call, legacy of opportunities here in the town of Arnprior. Employers across the country are
benefitting from the Global Skills Strategy. Syntronic opened in 2014
with 10 employees. Today it has 270
including 17 highly skilled employees brought in
on the Global Skills Strategy fast-track. It was simple and straightforward, a highly professional program
and it is purely based on merit. Being in the largest tech park in Canada,
we’re all looking for the same talent. We have to look quite far for our talent
because it is going into niche product skills and we are looking for experienced workers. If we didn’t have the program, it would mean
that we would likely lose the work. I love to see how culturally diverse we are
and to hear their stories. Hearing what it was like
for them to settle here and seeing how we can better it
for the next person as well. It’s not just about the job anymore. The job is a driver to get them going,
but then they want to grow a family. They want to play and they want to live
in a region or a community. And that’s what Canadians do very well. It’s probably one of the best programs
they have put in place in over a decade or two. The Global Skills Strategy:
