Donald Trump’s proposed immigration reform is justifiably giving the US’s technology sector the jitters. This is particularly true of the administration’s vow to limit the number of H-1B visas, which allow skilled foreign workers to live and work in the US. The visa has long been championed by US technology companies as giving them the freedom to attract the world’s best talent. Amid the uncertainty, the Canadian government is speeding up a move to charm those same workers to its shores in the hope of bolstering the country’s blossoming technology hubs in Vancouver, Montréal and Waterloo, near Toronto. At a recent technology summit in British Columbia, Canada’s minister for innovation Navdeep Bains announced that its new Global Talent Stream initiative would fast-track visa applications from overseas workers and reduce processing times from several months to up to two weeks. It is scheduled to launch in June and should be good news for the technology sectors looking to grow their businesses but concerned about their ability to do so in Trump’s America.
