Canada is leading the charge in the global competition for talent, as it plans to invite over 300,000 new high-skilled immigrants to its shores in the next three years. As persistent immigration barriers in the U.S. choke off access to foreign talent, companies in the U.S. – and across the globe – will continue to shift their recruitment efforts to the growing talent pool in Canada.
Companies already view Canada’s immigration system as better and more efficient than the U.S. For global mobility professionals, expanding immigration options in Canada offer new opportunities in the country’s rapidly growing tech sector.
Here’s how Envoy Global equips you with the tools to capitalize on Canada’s immigration opportunities in the new tech talent rush.
I. The New Tech Talent Rush: Discover How to Capitalize on Expanded Immigration Options in Canada
In September 2022, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) reported that nearly 500,000 immigrants working in Canada have training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. But from Canada’s perspective, this isn’t enough.
The country continues to take proactive steps towards attracting top global talent by expanding the list of occupations eligible under the country’s Global Talent Stream (GTS), redefining eligibility under provincial immigration programs and simplifying the application process.
Policy changes are happening quickly in Canada’s efforts to attract top global talent. That’s why Envoy’s Canadian immigration team simplifies and streamlines the information that you need to make the best decisions for your organization.
