H-1B problems draw more foreign workers to Canada
In light of the recent difficulties of obtaining H-1B immigration visas in the United States, more skilled foreign workers are looking to Canada.
The U.S. has an ever-increasing rejection rate for visa applications, whereas Canada’s immigration system is much more efficient and has higher approval rates. Many workers who had tried to get an H-1B visa in the United States have instead successfully moved to Canada, where they have found more opportunities awaiting them.
The H-1B program in the United States has been on the decline since Donald Trump took over from former president Barack Obama. The policies have becomes stricter, and many have lost faith in the system’s design and fairness.
While highly skilled foreign workers are being rejected in the U.S., they are greatly valued by Canadian governments. Because of this, the immigration process for moving to Canada has been made easier in recent years.
Canada Express Entry system
In 2015, Canada created the Express Entry system, which evaluates candidates based on age, skill level, language proficiency, and education, and does not require the applicant to secure a job offer before obtaining a visa.
In addition, the Provincial Nominee Programs are designed to fit the local needs of each province, making it easy for residency applicants to see where they will find the most opportunities.
There are temporary work permits available for skilled foreign workers, which can take only 10 days to obtain.
With Canada’s better immigration system, it is easy to see why so many workers are making the move to the Great North.
