The Global Talent Steam (GTS) program in Canada is designed for partnered Canadian companies to capture highly skilled international talent by granting those workers Canadian Work Permit within two weeks’ time. The GTS aims at enabling Canadian companies to fill in vacant positions with rare talent possessing workers from abroad. Whereas, it is the best opportunity for an international worker to use this program to get recruited by a Canadian company.
