Now, as COVID-19 introduces new considerations, Canada’s talent holds even greater appeal for global investors. Why? To start, Canada has the highest educated workforce in the OECD. And then there are the growing numbers of international students who choose to not only study in Canada but stay and build careers here after graduating. Of Canada’s record 642,000 international students in 2019, 60 percent plan to apply for permanent residence.
Plus, there’s another Canadian talent advantage that has been garnering widespread international attention and favor: Canada’s open and inclusive society that makes its unparalleled visa program for skilled workers so attractive to global companies.
Canada’s tremendously successful Global Skills Strategy meets the needs of companies looking for specialized talent by allowing employers to bring these global skills into Canada quickly. How fast? Within two weeks. That’s a remarkable talent advantage for global investors. As the COVID-19 pandemic makes many countries tighten visa restrictions and complicates global movements, easy and predictable access to proven talent has become essential for investors.
