FAQs

The Global Talent Stream (GTS) is a program designed to help Canadian employers access highly skilled foreign workers to fill specific in-demand positions. It is a fast-track visa program that allows eligible employers to obtain a work permit for a foreign worker within two weeks. The GTS has two categories, Category A and Category B, each with their own specific requirements. If a foreign worker is granted a work permit under the GTS program, they can work in Canada for up to two years.

To get a job in the Global Talent Stream, you must first find an eligible employer who is willing to hire you. The employer must then apply for the GTS program on your behalf and provide a job offer letter that outlines the job duties, salary, and benefits. The employer must also provide a Labour Market Benefits Plan that shows how the hiring of the foreign worker will benefit the Canadian labour market.

If a foreign worker is granted a work permit under the Global Talent Stream program, they can work in Canada for up to two years. After the initial two-year period, the work permit may be extended or the foreign worker may be eligible to apply for permanent residence.

To be eligible for the Global Talent Stream program, a foreign worker must demonstrate that they have the necessary language proficiency to perform the job duties. While IELTS is a commonly accepted language test, there are other tests that may be accepted, such as the Test d’évaluation de français (TEF) or the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP).

The Global Talent Stream program is designed for highly skilled foreign workers who are in-demand in Canada.

Additionally, the job offer must be made by a Canadian employer who is eligible to participate in the GTS program. Finally, the foreign worker must meet all of the requirements of the GTS program, including language proficiency and necessary qualifications.
