What is Global Talent Stream (GTS)
There are two categories to be eligible under GTS; Category A or Category B.
In order to be qualified for the GTS’s Category A, your Canadian employer must be suggested by one of the GTS’s recognized partners. Click here for the list of recognized partners for Category A.
