GTS is a new program that facilitates the procedures for employing foreigners with high and low wages in Canada.

The Goods and Services Tax (GTS) is a new initiative that streamlines the processes involved in hiring foreign workers in Canada, regardless of their income level.

Global Talent Stream in Canada

A cooperation between Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) resulted in the establishment of a pilot program known as the Global Talent Stream (GTS) in June of 2017. This program is intended to span a period of two years. Certain firms in Canada are able to obtain assistance from the GTS in order to acquire highly talented individuals from around the world, which enables them to compete on a worldwide scale. Within the framework of the Global Skills Strategy, employers who are successfully referred to the program will have the ability to speed up the process of recruiting individuals who are citizens of other countries.

High-wage workers in Canada.

If an enterprise wants to engage a temporary foreign worker who will be paid at or above the median hourly rate of their province or territory, then the firm is required to submit an application through the TFWP stream for high-wage workers. The first thing that the employer needs to do in order to complete this process is to get a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) that demonstrates that they were unable to find a permanent resident or a citizen of Canada to fill the post.

The positive LMIA index facilitates the procedures for applying for a Canadian work permit and permanent residency.

Having a good LMIA index makes the process of applying for a work permit and permanent residency in Canada easier to complete.

When a positive LMIA is awarded to an employer for high-wage skilled employment, the employer is obligated to tell the foreign worker of the results of the LMIA and convey to them the information that they are required to submit an application for their authorization to work in Canada prior to the expiration of the LMIA.

Following the receipt of a positive LMIA from an employer in conjunction with their formal, signed employment contract, a high-wage worker has the opportunity to submit an application for authorization to work in Canada. This authorization can be obtained through either a work permit application or a permanent residency application, depending on the worker's eligibility.

Low-Wage Workers in Canada: Employees Earning Low Wages.

It is necessary for a business to submit an application through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) stream for low-paying workers in order to fill the position of a temporary foreign worker who will be paid less than the median hourly salary of their province or territory. The first thing that the employer needs to do in order to complete this process is to get a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) that demonstrates that they were unable to find a permanent resident or a citizen of Canada to fill the post.

It is important for employers to be aware that low-wage workers' labor market inclusion agreements (LMIAs) compel companies to fulfill specific requirements in order to protect the rights and safety of low-wage non-resident workers in the workplace. An employer is required to advise the foreign worker of the results of the LMIA once they have received a positive LMIA for a low-wage, skilled occupation. Additionally, the employer must inform the foreign worker that they are required to submit an application for their authorization to work in Canada prior to the expiration of the LMIA.

Following the receipt of a positive LMIA from an employer in conjunction with their formal, signed employment contract, a low-wage worker has the opportunity to submit an application for authorization to work in Canada. This authorization can be obtained through either a work permit application or a permanent residency application, depending on the worker's eligibility.
