Was listening to a US podcast & there are US employers smart enough to not hire vaccinated people. The reason they say they are not hiring vaccinated is they do not want to hire employees that are that dumb to get injected. The productive are more likely to move to Florida or Texas away from in your face in your wallet dictators. CBC is not concerned about reporting the news they are a about pushing propaganda of the New World order.

You mean Canada is allowing immigration of educated competent people with 21st century skills from first world countries? Is Trudeau aware of this?
If you read the article, there is a picture of Trudeau talking to bright, young IT students about coming to Canada.

Canada is a top choice for those young adults who value a more wholesome lifestyle than living in the US.

In other labour news, Montreal hospitals are in danger of closing their ER departments after losing so many RNs and staff.

They are down to 50% of the workforce needed and can't find anyone to fill the vacant positions.

Private nursing employers pay higher wages and benefits to attract staff.

There are also 854 vacant nursing positions in New Brunswick.

If Alberta carries through with their plans to cut wages and benefits to nurses, they might well end up in the same situation as Quebec.

Someone should tell the Kenney government.......be careful what you wish for.

LOL, I wonder how people are supposed to prove they're not vaccinated. It's easy to prove you are vaccinated but proving you're not is trickier. I would assume most people will just lie.

Why do so many more Canadians (45,000) immigrate to the USA each year than people from the USA (7,500) immigrate to Canada? Are there more opportunities, economic or otherwise, in America?
there are over a million Canadians in the US the main factors why Canadians like to move to America are four main Reasons WHETHER,COST OF LIVING and JOBS and OPPORTUNITIES And TRANSPORTATION:

Th Whether In Canada is very Cold while it can get pretty warm in the southern part of Canada next to the border of the US most of Canada is very Cold and it snows too whitewash her in the US it’s much warmer sure of course America has cold places as well just next to Canadian border most of America is very warm hot or mild the Whether in America is diverse and te very pleasant compared to most developed countries.

the Cost of living in the US is cheaper since America has a much larger Economy than Camada at 21$ trillion compared to Canada 1.8$ trillion and the US a higher GDP per Capita and Americans pay less taxes than Camaadisn as well has housing costs car insurance food water and many other goods are more expensive in Canada whil Healthcare and College is more expensive in The US it still doesn’t stack up compared to the cost of livings in Canada

Canada unemployment Rate is higher than the US at 6.7% compared to the US 4.3% which makes it easier to find a job in America the USA has a much larger workforce due to having 10x more people and your chances of halving great opportunities are better in the US than in Canada it’s the America Dream.

Transportation is better in the US and it’s cheaper and more reliable than in Canada while both countries are dominated by automobiles the US having more people has more Transportation options America has way more Airports than Canada and has 3x more rods than Canada and rosy not Foregt that The US has the Amtrak Acela Express which America High Speed Train it’s maximum speed is 165 mph but it’s operating speed is 150 mph which is still High Speed as high speed trains are trains that are classified to go over 124 Mph something that Canada does not have which makes Canada the only g7 country with no high speed rail and Infastructure is also Better in the US America is ranked 13th in Infastructure quality while Canada is 26th.

And these are the reason why Canadians go across the border to the US more than Americans crossing the border to Canada so if you’re any to emigrate to the US Welcome you’ll have a good place to live in but don’t come now as covid 19 has ruined our world so you should wait until next year to move here especially now that Biden won the election and now that you can immigrate to the US easier than under trump last 4 years.

It's better to be rich in the USA than rich in Canada.

Honestly if I had the money, I'd move to the US.
Simply being able to have better access to health care when you need it is worth the money.

I think the weather is a big draw. a friend of mine married an American who moved up to Canada. She likes it here. She came from NY state so weather is similar. Her biggest observations…….everything is more expensive and the selection in all stores is way less…..she hasn’t commented yet on the higher wages (at least in her occupation).

Around 100,000 Canadians live in US illegally!
Since 2010, Canada has maintained a relatively high but declining emigration rate compared to other countries. In 2020, the net migration rate in Canada was 6.6 per 1,000.. This is noticeably higher than other industrialized countries such as the United States (2.9), the United Kingdom (3.9) and France (0.6).

Canada is attracting the most highly educated and highest skilled people and that is what every country wants.

We do a better job of attracting the immigrants we want than the US. Overall numbers are irrelevant in this context.

Interesting that tech is growing faster in Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton at a faster rate than in Silicon valley.

Our son's company has work lined up on massive new distribution centers for Amazon, UPS, Purolator and Fedex.

They will all require significant IT employees in the future. Ontario is in a "quiet' economic boom right now.

We are not attracting the most highly education or skilled, but rather those that are highly educated and skilled that don't want to live in the US. Absolute numbers do matter, as we are losing more professions to the US than gaining them, though the rate are gaining them is increasing a little bit more. When you say is growing faster in Canada than in Silicon Valley, it's very relative to absolute numbers It's easier to grow something percentage wise from a smaller base than a larger base. Would you rather have a 100% increase on your investment of $100, or a 10% increase on your investment of $100000?

We have a lot of family in the silicon valley and outside of the silicon valley in tech. I can tell you that the most senior jobs at the silicon valley firms pay easily 5 times what they do in Canada. A top developer will start at $250K, where as here you will top out around that level. Those who know they are good will continue to work in the US, it's only if you have draws to Canada (family, a slower,, less material lifestyle) will you choose Canada over the US in general. I say this because we love living in Canada. My spouse has worked in tech in Silicon Valley and in NY for numerous stints over his career for up to a year at a time. The offers he gets is 3 times what he makes here, but we stay because of our extended family and our kids. If we didn't have kids, we would have left a long time ago. We didn't want to raise kids in the US. The other consideration we had, which is the crux of your article is that the immigration in the US is a pain in the butt. We could get a Visa, but the Green card process was such a hassle we didn't want to feel so unsettled.

The tech sector is good in Canada for the right skill set, but it's definitely not as good if you are working in the US.

Exactly our situation in 2009-2010!
Intel closed site in Toronto and banned telecommuting .... My spouse got extremely generous relocation offer and huge increase in income... we could've select to move to CA, AZ or OR....
The major consideration were family reasons....kids and our moms...Another reason, Green card process... Company was giving Visa for 7 years with option to extend every time, Intel also said that they gonna help with obtaining green card, but no guarantee ...
We still sometimes feel sorry that we didn't move

Canada practically doesn't have IT ... Canadian IT index consists of 10 very small companies (that nobody in the World familiar with them) and 4 from those companies weight 75% LOL

You said million times that your son works in construction company, it's not a tech LOL ... "distribution centers" aren't tech either :) ...it's big warehouses where majority of employees are getting minimum (or just above it) wage LOL

P.S. This article is fake news and propaganda.... they take 1 specific case (that maybe is real) and present it as a trend. I know many completely opposite cases when high skilled rich people couldn;t immigrate to Canada and easily immigrated to US.. ... And the numbers show absolutely different trend than described in the article

Lifestyle over money..........is likely a key factor.
If you make enough money in in the US, you can have a much better lifestyle. However, for the middle incomes and lower, its definitely better in Canada. If you don't have to worry about education costs for your kids, or healthcare cost for your family then US is much more lucrative, with the exception of getting shot with their gun control challenges. Then again, if you are in the upper areas with lower crime rates and exclusive private, it's less of concern.

The upper echelon of talent goes to the US not Canada if they don't have family ties here.

Canada has a large and growing number of tech workers.

The US is concerned that Canada is siphoning off their top level people, due in large part to their poor immigration policies.

The US is politically fractured and all the GOP care about is the Mexican border, so Canada will continue to enjoy the benefit of their political division.

The number of high level tech people leaving the US rose during the Trump Presidency. They are smart people who want to live in a better country.

The tech industry is one of the fastest growing segments of employment in Canada. They are employed in virtually every industry and business segment.

In 2016, around 935,000 Canadians were working in tech occupations, representing 5.1 percent of the Canadian labour force.

Of these, 681,000 were in digital occupations while 254,000 were in high-tech occupations.


Canada is the best....
