2020 is surely a year about global change. With the COVID-19 going around, US President Donald Trump decided to suspend H-1B and other immigrant visas till December 31st.
With this decision imposed, immigrants might look at it as an opportunity of moving to Canada that has flexible policies. As per the recent data, there have been increased in enquires for the Canadian Immigration around the world. Over the past couple of years, many companies based in the USA have established their headquarters in Canada.
Right after the suspension of H-1B was announced the Canadian Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino gave a statement “We believe that immigration will spring our recovery out of this pandemic. We have a plan in place that looks to leverage the best and the brightest from around the world. We’ve got pathways like the Express Entry program, and the Global Talent Stream, which will help to bring entrepreneurs, engineers, and innovators.”
Canada has always been vocal and collaborative when it comes to immigration. Ever since President Donald Trump entered The White House in 2017, Canada is setting a consistent example of welcoming people from all over the world.
The fast track visa program launched in 2017 by Canada has attracted many tech workers. The GSS i.e. Global Skills Strategy rose to more than 23,000 workers in three years. These workers were approved under five tech categories. Majority of workers who were approved for the applications belonged to the computer science field, media developers, analysts, and consultants as per the IRCC data.
Almost 62.1% of applicants were Indians followed by the Chinese. Due to COVID-19 and shutdown at borders, the program is at a halt. But this will not last forever. Immigration will begin again.
