A Kitchener company that highlights the Canadian tech sector advertises on nine billboards in the Silicon Valley. They are hoping to lure skilled techies to move north. The full-size billboards are located at highlighted points from Santa Clara to San Francisco in California. Communitech spent $100,000 on the advertisement asking, “What if I lose my job and health insurance?” and “What if my visa gets cancelled?” over the top of the Canadian flag.
The ads refer to the Trump government’s suspension of several work visas, including the popular H-1B visa used by tech workers.

Iain Klugman, Communitech CEO, noted the people who will not be able to renew their visas are the top talent from across the globe. He wants his company to send a message saying they would be welcome in Canada if they lose a job or can’t work in the United States. Those who contact Communitech will receive information about work permits and job boards in Canada. They will be notified of job opportunities available across the country.
In the U.S., H-1B visas are available for 85,000 workers annually. They are set aside for skilled labor with highly specialized knowledge with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree. There are many job opportunities, no matter where you are located. Submit your resume to Jobs Across the World today!
