Default Canada Eyes Expanding Fast-Track Work Visa

Well, that is one way to get to Canada if you threatened to leave if Trump one.

I guess all those people in Hollywood can made CanCon and the ones from Silicon Valley can move between Toronto and Waterloo.

Canada Eyes Expanding Fast-Track Work Visa Beyond Startups

‎December‎ ‎14‎, ‎2016‎ ‎4‎:‎01‎ ‎PM‎ ‎CST

Startups lobbied for visa, may now apply to bigger firms too
Bains says lack of women in executive roles is discrimination

The Canadian government may widen a proposed two-week visa approval time for certain high-skilled foreign workers to apply to all companies instead of just the tech startups who lobbied for the policy.

The government wants to keep the new fast-track process as open to different companies and job types as possible,*and is leaning toward imposing a minimum wage requirement to limit the number of possible applicants, said Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains, who is working on the file along with the department responsible for immigration.

Bains said he hopes to have the changes ready to announce in the federal budget, which is usually delivered before the fiscal year-end on March 31. Companies will still have to apply initially to the government for the right to have their hires evaluated by the fast-track program, he said.

There is already a lot of back and forth between SV and Victoria, BC, too.

Canada wants to help us drain the swamp?

They need more actors so they are loosening up work permits for Hollywood Liberals?

Some really good SciFi coming out of Canada. I do not want to be watching one and see some ex-Hollywood lib dipsnit in it. That would kill it for me.

I do not know, nor do I care about the political leanings of Canadian actors and actresses.
