New way to integrate global talent into the Canadian labour market

New way to integrate global talent into the Canadian labour market

ICTC’s immigration initiatives are paving the way towards integrating Internationally Educated ICT Professionals (IEPs) into Canada’s digital economy. GO Talent is a unique program, offered to IEPs who have not yet landed in Canada, yet are on route.

GO Talent provides employers with early access to global ICT talent on their way to Canada, and assists internationally educated ICT professionals as they prepare to depart their home country. This combined approach directly contributes to the rapid labour-market integration of ICT professionals seeking employment in their field.

Candidates who participate in this program generally have a background in ICT, whether it be education or work experience. Upon registering for the program, candidates are provided with virtual or in-person assistance including resume review, interview guidance and information about Canada’s ICT labour market.

Resumes are sent to Canadian employers, and employers then have the option to interview or hire the candidate, depending on the skills match. ICTC has connections with employers nationwide, and these connections have expressed interest in hiring global talent. Over 1000 employers are already engaged through ICTC’s various immigration initiatives.
