Skilled Indian Professionals Preferring Canada over USA
The administration of Trump tightening regulations for holders of H1B visa in the USA, software workers, mostly Indians, are proceeding a shortcut to Canada. A huge chunk of tech experts on H-1B visas in the U.S.A is Indians, with the nation providing 85,000 H-1B visas for every year.

The government of Canada has chosen a programme known as Global Skills Strategy in the year 2017, which has fixed a goal to welcome 3,10,000 new immigrants in the year 2018 and 3,30,000 in the year 2019. As per the report of the Canadian government's Building a Nation of Innovators 40,833 positions and 3,625 appeals have been accepted for extremely skilled immigrants as of Nov 2018.

If someone is migrating after working in the U.S.A, they get high preference, and they gain the access faster, told Vartika Manasvi, the Stack-Raft founder. In fact, many people are on US visa extensions till the year 2021 and have O.P.T status (for the people who did S.T.E.M degree in the U.S.A), (but) they still aspire to migrate to Canada, she told, adding approximately one-third of the holders of  H-1B visa migrating to Canada are Indians.

Reasons for Choosing Canada Over USA

Unpredictability over the extension of H-1B visa has been the main reason some organizations have established their branches in Canada and relocated people with complicated skills like data analytics. Technology services firms such as Infosys, TCS, Cognizant, Wipro, and US arms of HCL and Tech Mahindra estimated for almost two-thirds of the 13,177 denials for extensions of H-1B for the first 30 firms, a report stated. The data was examined by the Immigration Studies Centre, a US-based think tank. Canada is further attracting highly-skilled workers with possible citizenship in  very less time that is three years, whereas in the USA they have to wait as long as a decade for a US green card.
