Global Skills Strategy: Dedicated service channel

Dedicated service channel (DSC)

We offer a dedicated service channel (DSC) to the following:

  • employers who make a significant investment in Canada
  • universities that support publicly funded research chair holders coming to Canada

The DSC gives employers access to an account manager who can

  • assess the employer’s needs
  • answer the employer’s questions
  • give the employer guidance

For an employer to be eligible for the DSC, their company must be identified and referred by one of our referral partners. If the employer is eligible, the DSC will contact them.

The DSC does not process applications or offer special exemptions from the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process.

DSC referral partners

This list is updated regularly as new partners are added.

Referral partners for the province of Quebec

The Government of Quebec’s Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion (MIDI) designates referral partners for the province of Quebec. Employers can find a list of partners (available in French only) on the MIDI website. Quebec-based companies can use federal partners or MIDI-designated referral partners.
