CETA, Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, came into force in 2017.

Three years later, many Canadian and European companies have seized the opportunities offered by this agreement and are now seeing the benefits.

Within this context, Immetis has been commissioned by the Delegation of the European Union in Canada to develop a practical guide aimed at decoding the various mobility options available to European professionals under the CETA agreement.

Immetis is pleased to make this report available to you.

CETA Chapter 10 provides provisions to facilitate the temporary entry of European professionals to Canada. In particular, it provides new and facilitating temporary immigration options to all European citizens wishing to expand their operations in Canada, regardless of the province.

In this report, you will find various resources and information on the Canadian economic environment, including :

- Key information and figures on the Canadian labour market, as well as issues that companies must address, such as labour shortages ;
