魁北克全球优才计划（Global Talent Stream)
The Quebec government has unveiled its version of the federal Global Talent Stream (GTS) providing two-week processing of a Canada work permit for top foreign talent seeking jobs in Quebec. The GTS is part of the federal Temporary Foreign Worker Program, and is designed to help expanding companies access foreign workers that are not available in Canada.
魁北克政府近日正式公布了其联邦“全球人才流”（GTS）的魁北克版本，旨在为有意于在魁北克寻求工作的顶尖外国人才提供为期两周的特快加拿大工作许可证审理手续， 。 GTS是联邦临时外劳工作计划的一部分，旨在帮助扩大公司雇佣在加拿大境内无法代替的外国工人。
Qualified companies must ensure the Canadian economy will benefit through a variety of measures, including knowledge transfer and investment in skills and training that will help improve Canada’s labour market in designated, high-skilled industries.
The federal GTS was launched in Canada on June 12, 2017, and helps Canadian business attract the best and brightest foreign workers. The previous standard for work permit processing was six months. Under the GTS, the standard is 10 working days for approved companies.
“Thanks to the Quebec government’s collaboration in implementing these new measures, Quebec companies can take full advantage of the Global Skills Strategy, just like Canadian companies outside Quebec,” said Quebec Immigration Minister Kathleen Weil. “They will benefit from easier and faster access to highly specialized talent from around the world,” she said
How Will the Global Talent Stream Work in Quebec?
GTS in Quebec will operate in tandem with the federal program. The major difference is that employers must also submit their GTS application simultaneously to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and to Quebec’s Ministry of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion (MIDI).
GTS Category A (GTS A类)
There are two categories under GTS. Category A features a list of ESDC designated partners who can refer employers for access to the stream. In Quebec, the three designated partners for GTS Category A are:
GTS有两个类别。 A类拥有ESDC指定的合作伙伴名单。在魁北克，GTS A类的三个指定合作伙伴分别为：
Employers can turn to any one of the above organizations to be referred to the federal government for access to the GTS.
Under Category A, foreign workers must possess a unique and specialized talent to qualify for a Canada work permit, defined as:
Advanced knowledge of the industry.
Highly paid position with a salary of usually $80,000 or more.
Advanced degree in an area of specialization of interest to the employer
Minimum of five years of experience in the field of specialized experience.
GTS Category B（GTS B类)
Under GTS Category B, any employer can access the stream if they are hiring from a list of in-demand occupations, called the Global Talent Occupations List. This list was developed with the input of the Quebec provincial government. A key different in Quebec is that it will set its own minimum wage for NOC codes 2241, 2283, 5131 and 5241. These will be published on the Quebec immigration website.

Labour Market Benefits Plan 劳动力市场福利计划
A key requirement for GTS is the Labour Market Benefits Plan (LMBP).
Developed with ESDC, it must show how hiring a foreign worker will help a company either create jobs for or transfer skills to Canadians. It also allows the ESDC to track a company’s progress.
The LMBP features mandatory and complementary benefits.
Under Category A, the mandatory benefit is creating jobs, whether directly or indirectly, for Canadian citizens and permanent residents. 在A类中，强制性福利是为加拿大公民和永久居民创造直接或间接的工作。
Under Category B, the mandatory benefit is to increasing skills and training investments for Canadians and permanent residents.
The LMBP must also provide two complementary benefits, which cannot be the same as the mandatory benefit. These include, but are not limited to:
Job creation, 创造就业机会
Investment in skills and training, 技能和培训投资
Transferring knowledge, 知识转移
Enhanced company performance and 增强公司业绩和
Implementing best practices or policies as an employer for your workforce. 作为雇主为你的员工提供最好的政策和
