As the United States and the Trump administration are closing the door on skilled immigrants, Canada, is doing the exact opposite. Capitalizing on the opportunity to attract skilled tech workers, Canada has initiated visa programs like the Global Talent Stream, similar to the U.S. H-1B program.
There is a speedy processing turnaround, about a month to complete. Canada is at a three percent unemployment rate in the tech industry, well below the overall unemployment rate. It makes sense economically for U.S. companies to have offices in Canada, since the workers are in the same time zone, it is a quick flight, there are easy laws, and there is a benefit of the Canadian dollar.
