Canada is an attractive alternative for foreign tech workers who are denied a US work visa. US work visas and extensions for highly-skilled foreign workers will become harder to get when a new U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services policy goes into effect September 11, 2018. According to Bloomberg

agents will be able to deny applications deemed incomplete or containing errors, without first asking applicants to address the flaw or warning them of an intent to refuse their submission. Recently the agency also widened the range of cases for which it could begin the process of removing foreign nationals to include those whose immigration benefits, such as work status, have been denied.

Canada Wants Tech Immigrants

Canada is actively recruiting skilled and educated immigrants to help build the Canadian economy and create jobs, and has created many programs to attract tech immigrants to Canada. Calgary immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah says Canada is a highly desirable destination for high-tech immigrants:

I work with skilled immigrants who want to move to Canada to work or build their business and help build a stronger Canada. Our quality of life and values in Canada are very appealing to skilled immigrants and entrepreneurs who want to move to Canada. Our cost of living, education system and healthcare are competitive or better than those in the US.
