US Companies Moving Jobs to Canada Due to Unstable H-1B Process
The Latest study reveals companies intend to hire higher H-1B applicants domestically but are also moving opportunities to Canada.

Report About Immigration Trends

Envoy Global newly published a study on trends of immigration and found U.S. firms are increasingly shifting jobs to Canada to escape from the doubtful state of H-1B and various programs of work visa. Approximately 65% of respondents state policies of Canada are more convenient than the ups and downs of the programs of the U.S.

Some 38% say their organization is thinking Canada as an extension target for new employees, while a further 21% say they have already established minimum one office in that nation. As the research goes on to note, Toronto totaled higher tech jobs than Washington D.C., Seattle, and the “Bay Area” joined, and the Ontario province is home to over 1,700 tech organizations.

A full 63% of organizations state they are expanding their existence in Canada. 35% state they are both moving a higher number of people to Canada and recruiting more abroad nationals there. Approximately 13% say they are merely transferring domestic expertise to Canada without recruiting abroad nationals, while 15% are only recruiting global nationals to work there.

Canada intends to add above one million current permanent residents over three years, with 330,800 focused for the year 2019 alone below current immigration rules. 58% will come through the Canadian Express Entry, and several of them will be given visas below the Experience Class, Skilled Worker Class, or Skilled Trade Class. Though there’s no particular tech worker plan in the Canadian system, the massive uptick in technology jobs recommends the candidate pool alone will be an operator for techies to move Canada.

The development of international offices may produce some anxiety that firms will stake a more significant claim to building their home in Canada to get the visa program benefits there. A quick glimpse at the H-1B program domestically reveals why firms are looking north; meanwhile, end-around games from the administration of Trump on the H-4 EAD spousal work visa difficult for foreign-born tech workers.

Though one study reveals that H-1B moves of Trump have been most effective, but outsourcing companies are suing on the part of tech workers and recruiting organizations who feel H-1B rejections are too numerous and restrictive.
