New Immigration Programs are Special for Canada to Acquire High-Tech Talent

November 2017, 11
EMAIL  Print A+
Today many High tech workers are fast-tracked in Canada. A pilot project, which makes finding jobs easy for highly skilled foreign tech workers, has attracted 1,600 people in the initial three months.

IRCC had introduced a two-year project in June 2017 with the aim of helping companies that needed talents quickly to expand their businesses.

The Global Skills Strategy reduces the time needed by the foreign worker to await the work permit. Presently the cases are decided within two weeks as against months taken earlier. The program has the aim to make it easy for the immediate family members involved to enter Canada.

Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains, was happy that the feedback received from the private sector was very positive.

Out of the 2,000 people who had applied so far, 80 percent applications for the program were put on the fast track. 

Some applicants were attracted to Canada as they anticipate not moving to the US because of the prevailing political environment.

The plan of President Trump to Make America great had resulted in making Canada great and more people are attracted to it every month. The processing of visa is becoming quite easy and it is felt by the applicants.

The last decade has seen an overall increase in the immigration of tech sector. The trend continues unabated. In 2016, 8,785 tech workers immigrated to Canada. Until August 2017, 6,940 tech workers have immigrated to Canada. The overall numbers for the year look promising as part targets cannot be viewed successfully. Several high-tech workers were reaching Canada because the US no longer remains a viable option.

There is an Immigration advantage to Canada. Its Immigration Minister, Ahmed Hussen said that the country was in a position to leverage the immigration advantage, and there are more countries, which are closing their doors to people, meaning closing the doors to talent and skills.

The Global Skills Strategy is an effective tool, in the changed atmosphere, to attract the best tech talent to Canada to compete against the Silicon Valley.
