Canada announces five-year work permits for skilled workers

The Innovation Stream Pilot welcomes applications from both domestic and international skilled workers, with eligibility primarily based on securing a qualifying job offer from a participating GHP employer.

TORONTO: Canada has introduced the Innovation Stream Pilot, a game-changing move to enhance its global economic standing.

This initiative, in partnership with the Global Hypergrowth Project (GHP), aims to simplify the recruitment of highly skilled foreign workers, ushering Canada into an era of innovation and growth.

Under this pilot program, the laborious Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) requirement is waived for high-growth employers within the GHP.

This streamlines hiring, enabling Canadian businesses to quickly onboard top talent from across the globe without past bureaucratic hurdles.

The Innovation Stream Pilot welcomes applications from both domestic and international skilled workers, with eligibility primarily based on securing a qualifying job offer from a participating GHP employer. This opens doors for diverse talent to contribute to Canada’s thriving industries.

Applicants in National Occupational Classification (NOC) categories 0 or 1 may benefit from expedited two-week work permit processing, showcasing Canada’s commitment to attracting top professionals swiftly.

At the core of this initiative is the Global Hypergrowth Project, empowering selected Canadian companies for rapid expansion. By facilitating access to highly skilled talent, the Innovation Stream Pilot fosters an environment for innovation and economic prosperity.

Leading companies like Ada, AlayaCare, CellCarta, and Clio are spearheading this initiative, driving innovation and shaping Canada’s economic landscape.

The application process is designed for efficiency and user-friendliness. Upon receiving a qualifying job offer, applicants can seamlessly submit their applications through the secure IRCC platform, ensuring a smooth transition into the Canadian workforce.

The launch of the Innovation Stream Pilot underscores Canada’s commitment to attracting global talent and fostering an environment for innovation and growth.

By removing barriers and facilitating collaboration between businesses and skilled professionals, Canada is poised for sustained economic prosperity.
