Tech Immigrants inclined to Canada Over the US
Tech Immigrants are inclined towards Canada as after the outbreak of COVID-19 the US put more restrictions on immigration. To deal with the pandemic situation and help American workers to gain employment, the U.S suspended immigration for certain Visa Holders including H1-B visas, which were issued to highly skilled foreign professionals, but now Federal agencies are bound to prioritise American workers over foreign workers.
These restrictions after the outbreak of pandemic stop thousands from getting employed or join any work-study programs even blocks spouses of foreigners from entering the country, even those who are working right now in the US.
While on the other hand, Canada is welcoming Tech Immigrants with open arms and prove is the latest Federal Skilled Trades draw and Express Entry draw in the last two days. In fact, Canada has welcomed tens of thousands, foreign Tech Immigrants, in the last three years.
Even Canada introduced Global Talent Stream three years ago to bring people in Canada and around 40,000 people are working in many tech positions. Along with Global Talent Stream, there are many options to immigrate to Canada although by this stream it takes only one month to immigrate to Canada as Tech Immigrants.
Many Provincial nominee programs are also there which are legit pathways for permanent residence for the Tech Immigrants with the right skills and experience and help to support the economic and labor market goals of any related province or territory. If we go in details many provinces arrange their own Tech Pilot draw through Provincial nomination which is eventually a pathway to Canadian permanent residence.
In fact, according to Canada’s Information and Communications Technology Council Report, almost 40 percent of foreign Tech Immigrants are in the Tech Sector and make 25 percent of Canada’s overall workforce.
