More US Tech Professionals Look North for Work in Canada

If you would consider relocating for work in Canada, contact Canadian Visa Expert for help with the immigration process. Their team of experts will walk you through every step.

There were 55 tech companies in Toronto surveyed to show that over half had experienced an increase in international applicants. Of those applications, 82 percent came from the United States. A survey MaRS performed earlier last year corresponded, showing several Toronto-based firms reported newfound interest in their company from applicants in the U.S. The interest from American tech workers considering joining the Canadian workforce could come from several reasons. Both Vancouver and Toronto are becoming established hubs for the tech field and are attracting skilled international talent. The two cities were ranked in the top 25 most high-tech cities in the world last year by Business Insider. A more political factor may be another reason. President Trump has an unfriendly stance on immigration and may be sparking renewed interest in Canadian employment as well.
