With an eye to hire skilled people and create diverse environment, Canadian government are in talks to make the Global Talent Stream (GTS) programme a permanent one.
GTS offers a speedy and easy course to work in Canada which will profit aspiring Indians including those based in the US currently with science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) background to benefit on the emerging job opportunities in the country.
Ahmed Hussen, minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship Canada (IRCC), said in the budget document recently, "We are attracting some of the most highly skilled people of the world, through our global skills strategy.”
According to statistics by the department of ‘Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada approx 41,000 invites were issued to Indians in 2018 marking a 13 per cent rise compared to 36,310 invites in 2017.
The GTS scheme is divided into two categories between A and B.
Category A says the sponsoring employer (an innovative company) to be validated by a designated referral partner such as regional development agencies. The sponsoring employers must be looking to hire 'unique and specialized talent'.
Category B says necessitates the sponsoring employees to exhibit their willingness to fill in positions on the 'Global Talent Occupation List' and are required to hire highly skilled international workers.
