Canada is increasingly becoming a magnet for talent. We’re experiencing a significant uptick in international students and skilled individualsarriving to work, study and live here.

Several strategies and programs are helping to attract this talent in, including the widely anticipated Global Skills Strategy, which launched on June 12. So far, the results of this program have been impressive. EventMobi, Platterz, Sheba Microsystems and Thalmic Labs have all reported success in using it to hire new employees.
