Canada, Oct 17, 2020, ZEXPRWIRE, GTSNCA stands for Global Talent Stream Network Canada is a professional networking and career development site. Where candidates looking to find a job in Canada under the GTS program apply. Employers who seek foreign professionals post their job vacancies in the job board section on this website.
Since its inception three years ago, the Global Talent Stream (GTS) has contributed to over 40,000 people coming to Canada to work in numerous tech roles, such as software engineers, web designers, computer engineers, digital media, and design.
The GTS allows these skilled workers world wide to obtain a Canadian work permit within just two weeks after getting a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) approval, which also takes about two weeks.
Like with other work permits under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), employers are required submit an LMIA application. However, employers are exempt from the advertising requirements usually associated with an LMIA (normally, an employer needs to show the federal government they advertised for a vacancy and were unable to find a Canadian to do the job).
In contrast, Canada’s reputation for being welcoming extends to talented individuals in specialty occupations. Even with the coronavirus pandemic affecting travel and immigration worldwide, the GTS remains open.
In June 2017 GTS was launched as a two year Pilot Program. This was then later proven pretty much successful program for foreign workers. But Later by April 2019 Canadian Govt. declared GTS as a regular program.
Ok now let’s see how exactly does it work?
Well, it’s a two steps process:
It’s similar to the process worked previously. The main difference is that instead of getting a traditional LMIA, which can take three to six months for you applying to the ESDC. But in this program the employer is applying the ESDC for the global talent stream at the beginning.
And this will take standard time frame of ten days, processing for 80% of applications. So far most of the GTS applications is processed within 10 days to the maximum of 3 weeks.
The second step is, once you have the first approval from the ESDC, the employ then has to still apply for the work permit application to the (IRCC) Immigration Refugees & Citizenship Canada.
