The Technology Councils of North America and Canada’s Tech Network released Tech Workforce Trends: The Migration of Tech Workers and Tech Jobs Since The Pandemic, a new report exploring globalisation and migration of tech occupations in Canada.
The findings highlight that between April 2022 and March 2023, 32,115 new tech workers came to Canada, with the most migrating from India and Nigeria. This move is due largely in part to a more immigration-friendly national policy and a labour cost advantage. The report also highlighted the most attractive Canadian cities to top tech talent, with Mississauga ranking first followed by Montréal and Waterloo.
While Canada has lost talent to the US overall, net loss is not significant at only 1,672 workers. Considering the population of the US compared to Canada and the total tech workforce of each, this demonstrates Canada’s competitiveness to tech employment opportunities.Click below to share this article
