The aim of this paper is to explore social, economic and cultural challenges of migrations to Canada by providing the Canadian policy framework regarding employment and working conditions of migrant workers. The labour status of those with high-professional capac- ities (teachers, artists, health care professionals, IT professionals, scientists, etc.) will be particularly addressed in this paper, taking into account a recent Serbian policy of “brain drain” management. The positive potential of migration expressed in development-friendly migration policy needs to Ьe considered since migrant policies also affect Ьoth countries' socioeconomic and cultural development. Serbian Diaspora Act (2009) and the National Strategy for Preserving and Strengthening the Relations between the Homeland and the Diaspora and the Homeland and Serbs in the Region (2011) will be used as basic referential legal documents.
