Leveraging the U.S. and Canadian Immigration Systems to Manage Your North American Talent Needs
11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. (Eastern)
The Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta and Barnes & Thornburg invite you to a webinar designed to help participants learn how to balance risks with opportunities when managing their international talent needs in North America. An incredible panel of guest speakers, including preeminent immigration attorneys, a representative of the Consulate General of Canada, and an immigration official from Canada, will be comparing and contrasting immigration policies in the U.S. and Canada to help companies identify complementary ways to work with both systems to manage risks and maximize opportunities.
Topics will include mobilizing foreign nationals via the Government of Canada’s immigration programs and Global Skills Strategy, understanding the advantages of doing business in Canada, and how combining top talent, market access and a friendly tax environment can springboard a company’s growth.
Canada and the United States share historic cultural, economic, diplomatic and security ties. The Canada-U.S. relationship is unique and no other two countries share a relationship where $1.4 million of trade transpires every minute. Understanding both markets will help companies reduce risk by nearshoring talent management and supply chain management.
On June 22, 2020, President Trump signed Proclamation 10052, temporarily suspending the entry of certain foreign nationals on nonimmigrant visas (H-1B, H-2B, L-1, J-1) due to weaker U.S. labor market conditions in the period following the COVID-19 outbreak; the executive order is in effect until the end of 2020. This stands to have significant implications for American employers with global operations, cutting off potential sources of foreign labor for companies already concerned about talent shortages.
1.5 Hours CLE credits pending.
