Today’s labor shortage is causing more employers to consider hiring international workers. If you’ve ever wondered what’s involved for you, as an employer — or if you’re an American worker considering taking a job in Canada — this podcast will be of particular interest to you. We talk with Hart Kaminker who specializes in Canadian immigration law. Hart helps skilled professional workers come to Canada, helps Canadian companies hire foreign workers and works with individuals who want to get permanent residence in Canada. Although Hart’s expertise is Canadian immigration law, he raises general issues that are most likely to affect American employers, too, if they want to hire international workers. He also answers many questions Americans and others may have about moving to Canada for a job or to live there permanently.

So if you want to know:

  • Major things companies need to think through before hiring international workers
  • Issues that can keep somebody out of Canada
  • What happens if you hire an international worker who just doesn’t work out
  • Hart’s number one piece of advice for companies thinking about hiring international workers and for workers thinking about taking a job in Canada
