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.

Read up on our complete list of speakers here.


If you have already registered for the conference, we invite you to complete a short survey to help our keynote speaker, Cheryl Cran, tailor her presentation for our audience.

Cheryl is a Future of Work & Change Leadership Expert, and she will be presenting her keynote:  The Future of Work Is Now – Are You Ready?

You can access the survey via the link below and the information collected will help to ensure that her keynote provides relevant insights for you as a conference attendee.
