Across Canada, French-speaking communities are ready to welcome you

Image

Each year, the Francophone and Acadian communities organize several rounds of information sessions for employers on international recruitment. Organized in partnership with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) offices abroad and with the support of the Government of Canada, these information sessions provide employers with practical information on how to recruit bilingual skilled workers abroad.

Information sessions in Canada: Support for recruiting abroad

Representatives from ambassy offices in France, Tunisia and Morocco will be travelling to Canada to meet with Canadian employers and professional associations in Manitoba, British- Columbia, Yukon, Alberta and Saskatchewan from September 20th to October3rd

This is an excellent chance to learn more about the candidate pools abroad that may have the skills you are looking for and the services available every year, free of charge from public agencies for employment and international mobility. An overview of Canada’s immigration programmes, including Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exemption under the Mobilité francophone stream, will be provided. These sessions will also feature information about Destination Canada Job and Mobility Fair to be held in Paris and Brussels in November. At Destination Canada, you can meet over 800 candidates a day invited to the job fair based on the skills sought after by Canadian employers. Many of the candidates will already have work permits or will be eligible for LMIA exempt work permits. There is no cost to employers or recruiters to participate.
