At Jane Katkova & Associates, we have special expertise in assisting local, national and international corporations with respect to recruitment of foreign talent, including executives, top managers, specialists, skilled and semi-skilled workers.

Throughout 20 years of practice, we have provided immigration solutions to clients carrying out business in various areas and industries, such as: alcoholic beverage manufacturers, accounting firms, Fortune 500 companies, and businesses in the construction, transportation, energy, import and export sectors.

We have worked hard to foster a positive relationship with Service Canada (a Canadian government agency that is also part of Employment and Social Development Canada) to establish ourselves as a firm of choice for diverse corporations seeking to relocate or transfer key employees to Canada.

Cutting through the complexity of Canadian immigration law, our counselors provide you with guidance and assistance throughout the process and its requirements to ensure your company recruits and retains foreign workers in the shortest time possible.

Why a Global Workforce?

The dynamics of human capital in the 21st century is becoming increasingly more global, diverse and interconnected as a result of growing international trade and the expansion of companies across new borders, beyond their countries of origin.

Free trade drives today’s economy ­– as products transcend borders, so does labor. Modern technology has created platforms that help tap into pools of global talent. Today, a global workforce has emerged, and the new trend of hiring skilled and educated foreign workers is contributing to company productivity and global connectivity.

A global workforce allows for the much-needed transfer of skills and proprietary knowledge and opens doors to new and innovative collaborations. Effective organizations are built around new HR management models that utilize global forces and talent to create immediate benefit for their companies.

Canada is a signatory to many international trade agreements, among which the participation in the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) are most significant for the purposes of facilitating a global workforce. CETA, a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, being signed between Canada and the European Union, is in the process of ratification by EU member states right now. These agreements extend basic labor mobility and facilitate the movement of workers among their signatories.

Canada offers programs for skilled workers to move to Canada. For example Express Entry, and Global Talent Stream (available in Quebec).
