Canada Technology Sector Wants Easy Access to Hire top Overseas Talent

March 2016, 28

The technology startup sector of Canada has urged Ottawa to fix the immigration regulations that limit its ability to recruit top overseas talent.

Under the policy modifications made by the Canadian government, employers now should validate an employment offer by getting the approval from government for a LMIA (Labor Market Impact Assessment) showing it could not find any Canadian national to do the work.

According to the spokesperson from Canadian Immigration Department, the government is planning to review the Express Entry Program for reviewing how it could be enhanced for talented immigrants like top level overseas executives. This review would also include the LMIA requirement.

For addressing the concerns from the employers, the Canadian government had introduced the Express Entry System early previous year. 

Technology sectors advocates are hoping that the Canadian government would address their concerns.  According to the CEO of a startup company, expect that there would be a discussion with the Canadian government about the innovation agenda and also the extent it pertains to immigration and talent.

The CEO of another startup company said that the Canadian government can address various concerns with simple, non legislative reforms that also includes starting a trusted employer program for letting the employers to speed up the applications and relaxing the requirement for LMIAs. So that it would enhance things which are importantly for business.

The chiefs of technology startups companies said that they were disappointed that there were no allocations of funds in the budget for improving the economic migration programs of Canada.

Mr. McCallum currently told that Canada proposes to accept around 3,00,000 immigrants in this year, which is an increase of 75 from the previous year, but taking in 1,60,600 immigrants in the economic category which is less compared to 1,81,300 from previous year.
