Destination Canada Mobility Forum: Hire Francophone and bilingual talent 

About the Forum

The November 2022 edition of the Destination Canada Mobility Forum focuses on Francophone immigration information and networking for candidates. The objective is to inform and prepare participants to live and work in Canada.

Canadian employers are not direct participants at the November 2022 Forum. For hiring, 2 recruitment fairs will follow, in early 2023.

However, you can communicate your job offers to representatives of your province or territory, city or region, or to a local economic development organization who will be at the forum as exhibitors.

Helping you find the right candidates

By submitting your job offers to participating exhibitors in your region, the forum gives you access to a pool of qualified candidates from around the world.

The following sectors have high potential for qualified candidates:

  • information technology
  • multimedia
  • marketing and communications
  • finance
  • hospitality
  • culinary and food industries
  • education and early childhood
  • translation
  • aeronautics and avionics
  • construction

They may include candidates who

  • are ready to leave for Canada with an open work permit, such as a Working Holiday permit
    • This means they can come to Canada immediately and start working the day they arrive. You won’t need to take any other steps related to their immigration.
  • are eligible for a work permit under Mobilité Francophone
    • This program includes
      • managers
      • professionals
      • technical occupations
      • skilled trades
    • You can hire Francophone and bilingual workers from abroad to work outside of Quebec without having to get a Labour Market Impact Assessment.
  • have already created their Express Entry profile to immigrate to Canada, outside Quebec
  • are looking for information about opportunities in Canada to advance their immigration plans

Two targeted recruitment fairs in 2023

These fairs will focus on priority sectors with identified needs and where Francophone and bilingual candidates are in demand.

  • Destination Canada IT, in January 2023
  • Destination Canada Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism, in March 2023


Registration for the virtual recruitment fairs will start in December 2022.
