Hong Kong : Toronto ETO promotes admission scheme for HK residents in Canada.

The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (Toronto ETO) rolled out a publicity exercise today (September 7, Toronto time) to promote the Admission Scheme for the Second Generation of Chinese Hong Kong Permanent Residents (ASSG) in Canada.

The ASSG was implemented by the Immigration Department of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government on May 4, 2015 to assist the return of the second generation of Hong Kong emigrants for employment.

The Director of Toronto ETO, Miss Kathy Chan, said that in view of its ageing population and shrinking labour force, Hong Kong needs to attract talent, professionals and entrepreneurs from outside Hong Kong to support its economic development. The ASSG is the latest admission scheme to be introduced. The aim of the publicity exercise is to let more members of the second generation of Hong Kong emigrants in Canada to know that they can make use of the ASSG to start a promising career in Hong Kong.

She encouraged those who are eligible to apply for the scheme. Hong Kong has one of the largest overseas Canadian communities in the world. We speak both English and Chinese, practise common law, have a simple tax system with low tax rates, maintain an international trade network and enjoy preferential access to the vast Mainland China market, Miss Chan said.
