Newland Chase sponsored and presented “Canada-US Immigration Issues: 2018 Trends and What to Expect in 2019” on 29 November from 9 a.m. - noon in Calgary, Canada at the Grand Hyatt Calgary. This session was part of Worldwide ERC®’s Certified Relocation Professional (CRP) Master Series.
Newland Chase’s Kent O’Neil, Global Legal Analyst, moderated an expert panel including Cassandra Conacher, Senior Immigration Consultant for Newland Chase in Canada, and Noah Klug, Managing Member of Klug Law Firm PLLC. The session was tailored specifically for corporate HR and mobility professionals, and with such a diverse and experienced panel of both Canada and U.S. immigration experts, delivered an informative and insightful discussion.
The program covered immigration trends from both sides of the border across 2018, and what to expect in 2019. The panel took a deep dive into what has proven to be a unique and interesting period in Canada-US relations, specifically when it comes to employment-based immigration and cross-border business. Topics included the impact of the new USMCA (NAFTA), immigration changes under the Trump administration, and the implications of Canada's new DUI and cannabis laws. The panel discussion format utilized real-world case studies to give attendees practical take-aways to apply immediately to their companies’ mobility programs.
