Doing Business in Canada Webinar: Sending Temporary Workers to Canada

U.S. Commercial Service Webinar Series: Doing Business in Canada

Sending Temporary Workers to Canada

Canada is the largest single export market for the U.S. and is a highly receptive market for U.S. goods and services.  The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Canada’s geographic proximity have afforded U.S. firms with a significant advantage in selling to Canada’s markets.  Are you maximizing your opportunity?  Whether you currently export to Canada or are new to exporting, the importance of developing a strategic approach to this market is critical to your success.  This five-part webinar series has been designed to help businesses strengthen the skills necessary to effectively do business in Canada.

Canada has recently seen some changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program.  This webinar will assist U.S. service companies, such as architects, engineers and technicians in identifying the new process for sending temporary workers to Canada to perform after-sales warranty repairs, business development and other tasks.  Questions covered include: 1. What changes have been made to Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program?, 2. Do I need to get a visa to do temporary work in Canada?, 3. Does NAFTA apply to my company?, 4. What documentation is required to send a temporary worker to Canada?
