Information for representatives of Canadian provinces, territories and organizations

Institutional representatives at Destination Canada are representatives from provinces and territories, from cities and regions, from associations and French speaking community organizations as well as representatives from settlement organisations.

Being part of Destination Canada as an institutional representative is a prime occasion to present opportunities available in Canada to a wide pool of candidates. It is a chance to inform candidates on immigration and settlement programs in your area. You can also provide support to employers in your province and territory by helping them meet their recruitment needs.

Destination Canada is a unique opportunity to reach a large number of qualified and motivated people in France and Belgium who are looking for information about immigration programs and settlement services across Canada. The webcast of Destination Canada will further expand the reach of the event.

Many participants will be about to leave for Canada with a Permanent Residence visa or an open Working Holiday permit. That means they are authorized to work from the day they arrive in Canada, without any administrative steps required on the part of employers. Many other candidates will be eligible for a facilitated work permit under the new Mobilité francophone stream.
