Prime Minister pronounces Canada as Tech-Savvy
In his visit to San Francisco on 8th Feb 2018, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau enlightens us on the latest developments in Canada attracting many Tech Investors.
Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce said this Thursday the company will put in $2 billion for online business software in its operations of Canada.
Trudeau visited AppDirect management, an online platform, where he mentioned that it is generating 300 more jobs in the coming five years in Canada.
When questioned if the current situation of immigration in the U.S is making his pitch easier, the Prime minister did not answer directly.
He told that companies from technology are always searching for talent across the global. He also pointed that in just two weeks Canada generated a fast-track visa for skilled worker permits.
He also stated that the U.S will be egged by Canada to put forward the workforce issues in the discussion over the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)
With American tech firms growing concern regarding the immigration of U.S. policies, Trudeau is pitching Canada as the resort for all American Tech organizations.
Ignoring Donald Trump’s hint to roll back the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Trudeau reminds California of the age old trading relationship between California and Canada.
On campaign trail Trump calls it as a “disaster”.
Canada has a free pass to pitch itself for Silicon Valley post the heated argument over immigration since Trump election. While employers from America worry for access to workers at foreign, a 2 week fast track employment permit to skilled workers is promised by Canada.
About thousands of tech jobs will be lost with the disruption of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), experts say.
