Seminar on Immigration to Canada – November 3

Seminar on Immigration to Canada

On Tuesday, November 3, 2015, from 12:50-1:50 p.m. in The McCormick Tribune Campus Center (MTCC) Auditorium, Canadian immigration officer Wendy Gall will speak about Express Entry, Canada’s new electronic application system for skilled workers to immigrate to Canada. Canada has one of the largest and most successful immigration programs in the world, accepting on average about 250,000 new immigrants each year, or almost 1% of the population. This event is a great opportunity to learn about pathways to living, working, and studying in Canada.
