This Webinar is intended to benefit global mobility, international human resources, relocation, and immigration legal advisers, who are involved directly or indirectly in managing or supervising the movement of foreign workers to Canada. Additionally, corporate representatives responsible for regulatory compliance and corporate responsibilities will benefit from the strategies discussed surrounding prevention of legal contraventions and risks to corporate reputation.
