REGINA, Saskatchewan - June 12, 2014 - PRLog -- Actyl Group, an international workforce solutions firm, is highlighting an operational bulletin from Service Canada making it easier for businesses and organizations to bring skilled French-speaking workers into the country.

Operational Bulletin 429 provides guidance to officers with Citizenship and Immigration Canada and the Canada Border Services Agency for processing work permits of francophone temporary foreign workers ( with national occupation classifications (NOC) of 0, A and B. These workers must be recruited for occupations outside of Quebec.

“This bulletin provides some outstanding resources for companies who need French-speaking temporary foreign workers for a variety of occupations,” said Linda West, president and CEO of Actyl Group ( “At a time when government regulations and suspensions are making it more difficult for businesses and organizations to recruit the skilled workers they need, this is welcome news.”

To qualify for the exemptions provided through Operational Bulletin 429, working permit applicants need to apply at a foreign visa office. The bulletin applies to workers recruited through Destination Canada or other federal government-coordinated events. Applicants’ habitual, daily use language must be French, and candidate may be required to go through an interview to demonstrate their fluency. The job description for the position in question does not, however, have to list French language ability as a requirement.

There’s a wide range of jobs to which the operational bulletin applies, including administrative services, business and finance, applied sciences, education services, art and culture, engineering, health care management and maintenance and equipment operation trades. Considering the bulletin, Actyl Group can help Canadian businesses recruit workers from 52 different countries, including Armenia, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Ghana, Haiti, Romania, Senegal and Switzerland.
