Global mobility

Global mobility: understanding all the issues

Working abroad – for either Canadians who leave home to work or Canadian companies that hire foreign workers – involves a wide range of human, financial, legal and tax issues that can influence the success of the process.

Our global mobility service ensures that:

  • employers are aware of the many tax, human and monetary issues generated by assignments abroad
  • employers are able to set up fair and equitable compensation plans that take the specific situation of each employee into account
  • employer and employee compliance obligations are met

The global mobility service also ensures that employees understand the impact of their assignment, in terms of personal taxation and the related compliance obligations, in both their country of origin and the host country.
