The EU-Canadian Trade Agreement CETA’s Impact on French Immigration

CETA creates several new categories of temporary workers who are allowed to enter the EU market via service contracts between Canadian and European corporations. These temporary workers must remain on their Canadian payroll, and are limited in the duration of their stay in the EU.

At present, CETA changes very little for a Canadian businessperson hoping to work in France. Although CETA has provisionally entered into effect, France has yet to act on the newly-created categories of temporary workers who are entitled to visa to work in France.
