SPEAKER SPOTLIGHT: HEATHER BELL

Senior Immigration Consultant, Bell Alliance

Filling the Gap: Hiring Foreign Workers

The demand for qualified employees often leaves businesses looking beyond our borders for staff with the right experience – but navigating the immigration process to bring those employees to Canada is not always clear. Enter Heather Bell, senior immigration specialist with Bell Alliance, a Vancouver law firm specializing in corporate, immigration, real estate and estate planning legal services. Heather supports employers from diverse industries with their immigration needs, as well as individuals and families seeking temporary and permanent residency to Canada. Two of Heather’s key focus areas are company expansions to Canada and supporting the hire, transfer and retention of foreign skilled professionals in technical and management positions.

A seasoned keynote speaker, Heather will provide an overview of the immigration channels and processes available to Canadian businesses, and will answer any questions delegates may have specific to their business.

WINCHES FUNCTION EASIER, LAST LONGER WITH LIQUI MOLY

Liqui MolyDirty winches make grinding sheets and halyards harder than necessary. Cleaning even the simplest single-speed model is a time-consuming task that should be done at least seasonally. That's why it pays to use only a top-quality lubricant like LIQUI MOLY Marine Winch Grease. Specifically formulated for sailing, it delivers the ultimate in wear protection with minimal friction.

Made in Germany, synthetic LIQUI MOLY Marine Winch Grease contains PTFE solid lubricants developed for all winching and hoisting activities.
