Do You Want to Move Your Workforce to Canada? New Report

International students and highly skilled foreign workers are responding to restrictive immigration policies in the United States by choosing Canada as their destination of choice. And U.S. companies are paying attention, and moving operations to Canada or near-shoring to Canada says the 2019 Immigration Trends Report by Envoy Global.

Canada has been using friendly immigration policies as one of its key tools to aggressively attract tech companies. In 2017, Toronto created more tech jobs than the Bay Area, Seattle and Washington, D.C. combined ... 65% of employers said they view Canada’s immigration policy to be more favorable than U.S. policy

  • new international student enrollment at U.S. universities declined over 6% in the 2017/2018 academic year
  • international students in Canada increased by 16% in 2018, after rising 20% in 2017
  • 63% of employers in an Envoy study are increasing their presence in Canada, either by sending more workers there or by hiring foreign nationals there
  • 65% of hiring professionals said Canada’s immigration policies are more favorable to U.S. employers than the U.S.

According to Vox Canada is becoming a tech hub:

U.S. companies are moving tech jobs to Canada rather than deal with Trump’s immigration policies.

Companies, immigrants and international students see Canada as an attractive alternative to the United States due to the many program and services the Canada government has put in place, according to a recent article in Forbes.
