Having worked at the senior management level in several companies and industries, John has been exposed to the challenges and priorities that businesses juggle, which allows him to address immigration issues from a true corporate and human perspective.
Whether it is with a biotech, renewable energy, pharmaceutical, or manufacturing company, John views his work as two-fold:
- helping businesses achieve their broader goals of profit and innovation by attracting appropriately skilled professionals; and
- helping those skilled professionals emigrate to a new country and capitalize on life-changing opportunities.
Canadian industries are growing fast, and it is not always possible to find the skills in Canada. As such, John uses immigration laws as a tool to bring people and businesses together in ways that grow and contribute to our industries and create a healthy, diverse economy.Download PDF
