Global companies find Canada friendlier, thanks to BLG Beyond’s new business immigration advisory service

Toronto (January 26, 2022) — Multinational companies have complex global talent needs that go beyond traditional immigration advice. Enter BLG’s newly launched BLG Beyond Business Immigration, Canada’s one-stop shop for fast, cost-effective, holistic global mobility solutions.

“Taking a one-application-at-a-time approach to business immigration breaks an important link between human resources and global business strategy”, says Brian Dingle, leader of BLG Beyond Business Immigration. “We take a comprehensive view of the client’s portfolio and strategic business goals to protect them from unexpected penalties and allow them to benefit more broadly from doing business in Canada.”

The team, building on BLG’s longstanding Immigration practice, matches each unique business immigration scenario with the appropriate cross-practice legal team to develop the strategy and advise on implementation. A national team of paraprofessionals completes the bulk of the transactional work, using templates and technology wherever possible to create efficiencies and reduce costs.

BLG Beyond Business Immigration offers solutions for any size problem. We can process large numbers of applications for the relocation of employees and the hiring of new foreign workers to address Canadian labour shortages. We also offer hands-on and highly personalized relocation services for business critical moves, such as top executives, specialized knowledge workers and entertainers, to ensure the transition from their country of origin to Canada is as smooth as possible.
