Next to your passport, an ATA Carnet is the most important business travel document you can have. It allows the temporary importation of a variety of goods into 71 countries worldwide, with more joining every year.
Among others, its most significant benefit is the ability to enter foreign countries without the need to pay duties and taxes upon importation and claiming refunds upon re-exportation*.
This is an opportunity for Canadian businesses to learn about the Carnet Program and its benefits.
Don’t wait to register… delays at the border can be costly! A customs expert will be available to address issues and provide guidance.
Attracting and retaining skilled workers in a tightening labour market is a major concern for many employers. Labour market information (LMI) can help them address that concern. For businesses looking to expand or adjust to market changes, LMI is valuable to making business and location decisions.
Employers are especially interested in the labour market information for their community and want to understand the availability of workers, the current market conditions and where to find workers with specific skills. LMI can support all those needs and assist with human resource planning. Unfortunately, many employers have difficulties finding the LMI they need to support their decision-making.
This webinar will address these challenges and needs and will help you access data that will allow you to find the skilled workers your business needs. Experts from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada will take you on a step-by-step tour of the LMI resources available on WorkingInCanada.gc.ca and JobBank.gc.ca. Presenters will give you an overview of what data exists and where it comes from, known gaps and work currently underway to improve LMI and its dissemination. They will also show you how to use the tools available online and answer any questions you may have.
