To register:


This meeting is part of a series of virtual meetings hosted by the CCR since 2019 to create a space for G5 and CS sponsors to connect, network, and discuss common challenges or concerns.

At our last meeting in October 2020, participants identified the need for more information from IRCC as a key challenge. Therefore, we have invited IRCC to join us at this virtual meeting to share information and answer sponsors’ questions.

We regret that we will not be able to take any case-specific questions at this meeting, and we will not be able to take spontaneous questions from the floor. Instead, we will be using an online engagement tool called “Slido” to solicit your questions in advance, and these will be “voted” upon by you to prioritize your top questions and concerns. A link will be sent upon registration in the confirmation email - please check in advance of the meeting
