Canada recently unveiled its first-ever immigration tech talent mechanism, which will provide job opportunities for Nigerians and others.
The new job opportunities come only a few days after Germany passed an immigrant law designed to attract more people from outside the European Union to come to work in the country.
According to Toronto News, the talent strategy launched at the 2023 Collision Conference in Toronto includes new and improved methods to help Canadian firms thrive in a competitive world.
“Over the course of this year, Canada will be developing a specific stream for some of the world’s most highly talented people who will be able to come to Canada to work for tech companies whether they have a job offer or not,” said Sean Fraser, Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship.
“We are going to launch a digital Nomads strategy that will allow people with a foreign employer to come to Canada and work for up to six months,” he added.
Fraser said that talented people will reside in communities within the country and spend money, and if they receive job opportunities while they are here, they will be allowed to stay and work.
“Finally, we have been closely monitoring what has been going on in the US tech sector, where we have seen a public narrative about layoffs.” “We’ve been talking about opportunities in private,” he said.
The minister stated that from July 16, a stream would be established that will allow 10,000 H-1B visa holders in the United States to come and work in Canada.
“The reality is that you have ideas, but you need talent.” You’ve told us, and we’ve been listening. We will do everything possible to promote Canada as a destination where your ideas may become a reality,’ he added.
