Show Notes:

Canada wants to become a tech hub but is facing an aging workforce. Canada has put economic immigration initiatives and programs in place to make Canada attractive to foreign tech workers. For skilled IT workers who want to find tech jobs in Canada, the question becomes, 'How can I get a tech visa to Canada?'

Canada's immigration system IRCC implemented a new work stream Global Talent Stream Skills Strategy to help Canadian employers get the highly skilled foreign workers their businesses need. Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah explains,

The Global Skills Visa is a new work stream established by IRCC which allows certain highly-skilled foreign nationals to obtain priority processing with a target of two-weeks to obtain their work permits. This is a new strategy to help employers recruit the high-skilled workers they require. The stream delivers three benefits:

  • 80% of work permit applications will be processed within two weeks of submission
  • work permit exemptions will be granted to highly-skilled workers on short-term work assignments - these exemptions will also cover researchers involved in short-term research projects in Canada
  • Provision of a dedicated service channel for companies intent on large job-creating investments in Canada
