Encourage candidates to get their documents ready

Candidates will need to include specific documents with their permanent resident application. Encourage your candidate to start getting these documents ready even before you make the job offer:

Some of these documents will be more difficult to get, so it’s best to start as soon as possible. If they have these documents, they can send their application more quickly after you make the job offer.
