Global Skills Strategy: About the process
About the process
Employers want to attract top talent to work for their company, and they want a fast and predictable process to do this. To help employers find these highly skilled workers faster, we introduced the Global Skills Strategy (GSS). The strategy features faster application processing times, work permit exemptions and enhanced customer service.
Foreign nationals eligible for this priority processing must still meet all other eligibility and admissibility requirements, including providing police certificates if required. Eligible applicants must submit all required documents with their application. If they don’t submit the required documents, they will not get the 2-week processing time.
Processing delays because of COVID-19
Because of COVID-19, there are delays in how quickly we can process your application. We’re still processing GSS eligible work permits, but it may take longer than 2 weeks.
