Travel and relocation to the U.S. is becoming even more complex, thanks to security clampdowns, anti-immigration political pressure and processing backlogs. In the last two years alone, multinational companies have lost millions of dollars as a result of government delays in granting visas to foreign business travelers.

Similarly, processing applications to bring employees into Canada now takes an unprecedented length of time, thanks to recent civil-service reorganizations.

Whichever direction your employees are moving, and whether they are moving temporarily or permanently, The Canadian Institute's two one-day conferences on Corporate Immigration and Workforce Mobility are designed to give you a wealth of solid, practical advice. This is your chance to get the information you need to prepare employees for the border-crossing experience, prepare written applications, make strategic use of various visa categories, and negotiate appropriate contracts and compensation packages for relocating employees.
