Two categories of foreign workers are managed through the Global Talent Stream program.
Requirements differ based on the position that a foreign worker will fill.
If an individual has unique and specialized skills to help an innovative Canadian company grow and scale up, Global Talent Stream Requirements for Category A will apply.
If a foreign national will fill the information technology sector’s position on ESDC’s Global Talent Occupations List, Global Talent Stream Requirements for Category B will apply. Read our Employer Guide to Hiring IT Professionals through Global Talent Stream Category B LMIA.
