No, all the applications from various companies are not on equal footing. There are in fact two divisions under the Canadian Global Talent Stream.
Group A consists of the high end companies like Council of Canadian Innovators, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada – Accelerated Growth Service or Atlantic Canada opportunities Agency.
Group B pertains to those recruiters wishing to recruit employees in certain fixed categories of the National Occupation Classification or the NOC. For example – Computer and information systems managers or Information systems analysts and consultants.
