The US election have been upsetting to some Americans, until president-elect Donald Trump becomes the new president of the United States.
For some, the election result is dire enough that they were looking into possibilities into moving to Canada. And yes, it hits the entire world in expressing their desire to leave the country and move to Canada.
And while that option may sound extreme to some, that decision may be more appealing to those who are involved in tech industry.
In early November, the Canadian government established several measures aimed at enabling Canada’s growing tech sector to retain and attract skilled foreign workers. The initiative will make visas easier to obtain for potential transplants, it changes how visa work for temporary staff, and may help to exhaust Canadian talent before attempting to attract foreign talents.
Here’s how Canada’s Globe & Mail express it:
“The strategy, unveiled Tuesday [November 1] by Finance Minister Bill Morneau, includes measures that will make it easier for fast-growing Canadian tech firms and multinational corporations operating here to quickly bring in skilled foreign workers for jobs they are struggling to fill in Canada.”
Investigator and director of research at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital Jim Woodgett have told Vice saying, “We’ve had many years of net migration of our brightest minds to our southern neighbor. I’d say it’s time to repay the compliment.”
Canada’s immigration and citizenship website crashed earlier as Donald Trump becomes 45th US President. Canada’s website usually offer ways of applying either to live in or become a citizen of the country.
Prime mInister Justin Trudeau congratulated Donald Trump on winning as the next U.S. president promising to work with him in boosting trade and security, giving Canadians and Americans a “fair shot at success”.
“We’re going to keep working with people right around the world. We’re going to work with our neighbours, and I’m going to work with president-elect Trump’s administration, as we move forward in a positive way for, not just Canadians and Americans, but the whole world,” Trudeau said in a WE Day event in Ottawa.
