We recently heard of Canada’s big and better immigration plans for 2018. From a strong desire to allow a million newcomers by 2020 to a promise of huge funding in immigration, Canada elaborated on its exciting initiatives. It also did tell about the growing opportunities it has in store for various professions. But, with so many professions from various nations in the rate race of Canada immigration, don’t you think there has to be a profession which has “the best chance” for Canada? A particular sector to whom immigration can be easy as abc! Certainly, there is. It’s the IT Profession.

Canada is home to a vibrant and diverse tech sector and often a nation ranked in top numbers of countries with best IT and technical scope. Unfortunately, with all good tech scope and ever-green job market, the nation falls behind in justifying the vacancies with right IT skills. “New applications are creating jobs that were unimaginable just years ago. Ten years ago, there were no smartphone app developers, or cloud computing engineers or social media managers” said the Governor of Bank of Canada, Stephen Poloz in a speech at the Queen University in Kingston-Ontario. “Immigrants have a key role to play in helping grow the Canadian economy and off-setting the country’s growing shortage of skilled labour“, he added, signifying the crucial role of immigration today in bringing right talent to the desks of Canadian tech companies.
