What is your talent strategy for the GBA? Will the ability to draw on talent from across the region help or hinder innovation? The success of the GBA rests on its ability to integrate business across 2 SARs and 9 municipalities in 3 legal jurisdictions. During this webinar you will hear from industry experts who will share the different employment, tax and immigration laws that businesses need to be aware of when seeking to move or hire top talent within the GBA to ensure that their strategies are workable.


Details on how to join will be sent via email by 5pm the day before the webinar.
