Canada holds doors wide open for Indians
NEW DELHI: Canada is set to make the Global Talent Stream (GTS) programme, which offers a hassle-free and quick route to work in the country, a permanent scheme. This will benefit aspiring Indians (including those currently based in US), who have a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) background, to make the most of emerging job opportunities.
Under this programme, processing of applications filed by sponsoring employers takes just two weeks. The icing on the cake is that those hired under the GTS route gain valuable work experience in Canada, which gives them an edge when applying for permanent residency under the Express Entry Route, which is a point-based system.
As TOI had reported in its edition of June 15, Indians formed the largest group to be issued invites for permanent residency under the Express Entry Route. Of the 86,022 invitations sent during 2017, nearly 42% (or 36,310) were to those holding an Indian citizenship. According to statistics provided to TOI by department of immigration, refugees and citizenship Canada during 2018, 41,000 odd invites were issued to Indians, a rise of 13%.
“We are attracting some of the most highly skilled people of the world, through our global skills strategy,” Ahmed Hussen, minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship Canada (IRCC), stated in the budget document, tabled recently.
The proposal to make the two-year pilot project permanent follows calls to do so from Canada’s burgeoning tech sector. Since its launch in June 2017, more than 2,000 workers have been approved.

I have lived in Canada for a few years, and here is my HUMBLE opinion to all Indians who are aspiring to go there. Canada is NOT what these Canadian immigration authorities want you to believe (they will show you the best pictures of Canada with happy families, but this is falsehood). The reality is Canada needs immigrants because their native population is not producing enough kids to replenish the population. According to a survey by the magazine, The Canadian Immigrant, 4 out of 10 immigrants to Canada END UP LOSING ALL THEIR SAVINGS and get disillusioned with the Canadian dream. Canada wants your money badly, which is why they allow you to immigrate so easily. BUT, the JOB CONDITIONS in Canada are pathetic. Racism is rampant, but you won''t be able to see it openly (very subtle). The kind of jobs that are available are low-level jobs like carpenters, plumbers, TV technicians, and caregivers. Most people from India that I have met are working in coffee shops, making coffee for white people. Do your research properly before you spend tons of money immigrating to this EXTREMELY COLD (and highly unbearable) country where ARCTIC WINTER lasts for 8 months of the year.

@TomKurien excellent advice. My cousin went to Canada with his life saving of $20000 and with wife and kids. He lost all his money and his wife divorced him and came back to India. he is now working as night security guard in canada. He was general manager in a bank in india before he left canada. i cry for my cousin all the time. Wish he had stayed back in india.

There is no country like India anywhere in the world. There is rich heritage, monuments, exotic places to visit, great hospitality, great support system, great transport system, things are cheaper than overseas countries, great labor force who will do any work in no time and affordable rates, long lasting friendships, never get lonely, never starve, good jobs with high wages, easy access to any country for holidays, work stress is less, bosses are less demanding. What more can I say. Awaiting your comments soon. Long Live India and Indians.
世界上没有一个国家像印度这样，拥有丰富的文化遗产,遗迹,充满异国情调的风景胜地，基础设施发达，物价比国外便宜,劳动力廉价。印度人热情好客，会和你保持长久的友谊, 在这里你永远不会寂寞,不会饿死, 这里有待遇丰厚的好工作，工作压力小，老板要求低，而且去任何国家度假都很方便。印度万岁，印度人万岁。

why to Canada. Government need to create opportunities in India itself.. Hope the new government post election would take preemptive action to provide funds for scientific research and AI to develop our country.

Canada has three types of Citizens, A grade which are French speaking B grade Whites English speaking, C grade Colored English speaking. Now the best jobs are given to the A and B category, C category males get the lowest job of the strata. However qualified C category females tend to get middle management jobs and some may rise to the top by sheer hard work and dedication. Many Many Qualified (STEM) who migrated to Canada are driving cabs, filling gasoline or anything they got to do to survive.

This is 100% true. Canada is not what you think it is , I lived in Canada from 1975-1978, having left New York , Thank God I did not surrender my US greencard . I moved back to the US because of the bitter cold in Calgary. Apart from that there is hidden racism in Canada, There are a lot of nice people in Canada.
There is no country in the world like the United States, You can come here pennyless and become a millionair.

Immigrating to Canada is like whether to marry or not. After marriage some will regret and some will live happily for ever. Then why not take a chance?
