After U.S. immigration ban, Mendicino says “Come to Canada”
Following the U.S. immigration ban, Canadian Immigration Minister Mendicino says “Come to Canada” during a TV interview. Minister stated that Canada will remain open for immigrants despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
After the announcement made by the U.S. Government, which suspended all permanent and temporary visa applications, Canada’s immigration minister made the statement telling that Canada is open to welcome even more immigrants.
According to the new executive order, signed by president Tunald Trump, all green card holders and temporary foreign workers have been banned from entering the U.S. in the rest of 2020.
Trump has issued the bill because he believes it will support American workers who have lost their jobs because of the corvid-19 crisis find employment.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic Minister Mendicino has made multiple statements. He said Canada is still dedicated to welcoming immigrants, temporary foreign workers, and students from around the world.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has also disrupted Canada’s economy, Marco Mendicino and the Canadian government claim that continuing to welcome immigrants would help revive the economy.
In a recent TV interview, Mendicino repeated these opinions.
When asked about his opinions on the recent U.S. immigration suspension, Mendicino said the move would “spring economic recovery for Canada.”
We have a plan in place that looks to leverage the best and the brightest from around the world. We’ve got pathways like the Express Entry program, and the Global Talent Stream, which will help to bring entrepreneurs, engineers, and innovators. We’ve also got pathways for manual laborers and skilled laborers.
Furthermore, temporary foreign workers who are largely excluded from existing travel limitations in Canada, and tech workers can enter Canada via temporary visa pathways such as the Global Talent Stream.
Before the pandemic, after the record-setting year it had in 2019, Canada sought to accept another 341,000 newcomers in 2020.
Overall, Canada offers many different combined permanent and temporary resident possibilities for skilled workers wishing to pursue the country’s economic opportunity.
Canada also provides different forms of immigration to temporary foreign workers and international students who want to move to permanent resident status in Canada.
