As Indian techies went into a tizzy following changes to H1-B visa by the US and the 457 visa by Australia, Canada appeared like a silver lining in the cloud for them because of its out-and-out pro-immigration stance.
Justin Trudeau and Canada Inc. are now the toast of skilled immigrants all over the world, not just India.
Its Express Entry is decidedly the still most popular immigration programme in the world.
As per its Immigration plan for 2017, Canada is gearing up to welcome over 320,000 new immigrants. About 172,500 new immigrants are being targeted under the economic immigration category targets, which is a 7.41% increase over 2016.
It is said that 35,993 invitations have already been issued from January 2017 till date when compared to a total of 33,782 in 2016.
Meanwhile, the scores continue to fall and the last Express Entry scheme had for selection an all-time low score of 415.
Canada is renowned for providing great opportunities for techies. In addition, their children’s education is free, spouses are also allowed to work and pay scales are pretty decent. One can apply for citizenship after staying for four years in Canada. Other perks offered by Canada are stability, a secure future and, furthermore, Justin Trudeau has become the darling of all.
