With the signing of the “Buy American – Hire American” Executive Order1 by U.S. President Donald Trump on April 18, 2017, it could become even more challenging for employers to transfer key foreign skills to the United States. 

In Canada, on the other hand, the government plans to introduce innovative changes to immigration policy on June 12, 2017, that will facilitate the ability of Canadian businesses to secure the services of global talent in a highly competitive market.

The KPMG International member firm in Canada is offering a Webinar on May 11, 2017, that will shed light on the new policies and practices – see registration details below. 


Immigration counsel, global mobility professionals charged with the immigration affairs of their international assignees, and the assignees themselves should stay abreast of these developments as they may impact the services they provide their clients and the ability of workers to enter and work in the United States and Canada.

The KPMG International member firm in Canada is offering a Webinar that will shed light on the new policies and practices expected to take effect in the United States and Canada and how there may be opportunities for employers and their employees related to the upcoming changes.
