Earlier this year, while addressing the talent shortage, the Global Talent stream (‘GTS’) was introduced permanently in March 2019. Significant changes were brought to make it easier for the high-tech skilled workers to move to and settle in Canada, in terms of processing of applications and issuing of new permits. 

 

In the last 2 years, the Government of Canada has invited nearly 24,000 visas under the Global Talent Stream (GTS). The temporary foreign workers with work experience in the listed occupations under category B could obtain a work permit within a short processing time of 2 weeks. 

 

The eligible occupations list has been updated with an addition, while Engineering managers and architecture and science managers under NOC 0211 and NOC 0212, respectively have been removed. The new addition of Computer Network Technicians is now in the eligible occupations list. 

 

These changes are introduced in response to the labour demand of the market in Canada. The Canadian employers are looking to hire foreign workers, who can easily obtain a work permit within 2 weeks of processing time. The eligible applicants will also benefit from quick processing of Labour Market Impact Assessment applications. 

 

Regarding deleted occupations, the applications will not be processed after August 4, 2019. The listed occupations are in the fields of Information Technology and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) with easier access to eligible temporary foreign workers who has the relevant experience in the field.
