A Q&A session will follow, with questions such as:

  • What does it mean to support a worker's application for permanent residence?
  • What is an employer obliged to do once they have supported a worker's immigration application?
  • What to do when things go wrong?
  • What documents should an employer request? 
  • How can an employer verify documents (language test results, educational credential assessments, etc.) are legit?
