KPMG is committed to the health and safety of our people, clients and communities. With this commitment in mind, KPMG complies with all public health mandates (provincially and/or federally, as applicable) and has implemented various safety measures, including a COVID-19 Vaccination Policy. KPMG's COVID 19 Vaccination Policy requires all employees to be fully vaccinated if they wish to or are required to attend a KPMG office in the course of their duties.

Any immigration lawyer can deliver a work permit application. At KPMG Law, our immigration lawyers deliver smart talent strategies and creative workforce solutions.
We understand the competitive nature of today's talent environment. And we know that immigration plays a key role in shaping a sustainable talent and workforce strategy. That is why our professionals go beyond simply processing applications to instead focus on helping clients turn immigration into a talent driver.
Clients select KPMG Law, not because of our size (though we do have more than 100 professionals focused solely on immigration services), nor because of our deep technical capabilities (we've been providing immigration law services for more than 35 years), but rather for our track record of helping companies of all sizes and across every industry mobilize their workforce and access global talent.
Organizations also recognize that only KPMG Law has the international capabilities, experience and reach to support nuanced and complicated global workforce strategies. Our team includes immigration specialists with in-depth knowledge of virtually every country and region, and our affiliation with KPMG in Canada and KPMG International provides our clients with global coordination capability.
