US Canada Employment Program

Are you a U.S. employer interested in hiring a Canadian citizen? Are you a Canadian citizen interested in pursuing U.S. employment? This year, the process may become easier.

On January 8, 2015, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced its consideration of a “Known Employer” Pilot Program. The program would create a more efficient adjudication process for certain types of employment-based immigration petitions filed by eligible employers.

The program would also reduce costs, paperwork, and delays related to petition processing. Another goal of the program is to expedite legitimate cross-border business travel between Canada and the U.S.

DHS is expected to commence the Pilot Program by late 2015.
