The importance of a strong technology sector to Canada’s economy and development cannot be underestimated.
India’s technology sector is critical to Canada’s ability to foster innovation, pursue future growth, and develop as a country. As a result, Canada is in high demand for technical talent from around the world.
This demand is evident in many ways, but not more so than in the introduction of a category-based lottery within the Express His entry for professionals with recent work experience in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) careers.
To meet this national need for technology workers, several work permit options are available for individuals in information technology (IT) careers. Three examples of these work permit options are Global Talent Stream (GTS), CUSMA (Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement) Professional, and Intra-Company Transfer (ICT).
Global Talent Stream (GTS) is a dedicated immigration pathway that helps Canadian employers hire foreign technical talent.
Through GTS, certain employers (either those referred from the stream or those recruiting for specific positions) can support the growth of their business by hiring international workers in such a way so that they can work around two weeks from the date they submit their application.
This is achieved through GTS’ rapid processing of work permit applications and Temporary Residence Visas (TRVs).
Due to the growing demand for technical talent across Canada, this program is designed to support Canada’s IT sector, as many of the skilled technical jobs under the GTS are in software, engineering, design, computer, etc. may be particularly useful for foreigners interested in Programmers, Information Systems Analysts, Computer/Information Systems Managers.
Note: GTS-eligible employers looking to hire IT professionals may qualify for a Rapid Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The purpose of the LMIA is to verify that the employment of foreign nationals by Canadian companies does not have a negative impact on the country’s labor market.
Under CUSMA, certain US and Mexican nationals can obtain Canadian work permits without their LMIA, allowing eligible foreign nationals from these countries to move to Canada (in the IT field) more quickly than they otherwise would.
Workers in approximately 60 professions will be eligible for their CUSMA occupational work permit through this North American Agreement. Many of the professions eligible for this specific permit under CUSMA fall within the IT sector. Examples include computer systems analysts, graphic designers, writers for technical publications, and computer engineers.
Intra-Company Transferee (ICT) is a foreign national who can obtain a Canadian work permit without an LMIA. This is possible if the foreign national has been employed by a company abroad for at least one year and comes to Canada to work in a Canadian subsidiary, subsidiary, parent company, or branch of the company.
Among the three categories under which foreigners can obtain their ICT work permit, one is specifically aimed at those with “special and proprietary knowledge of the company or its products.” This is usually the category in which an IT professional will be eligible for an ICT work permit.
