Will Biden’s immigration policies blunt Canada’s tech edge?

by Robert Asselin – Senior Vice President, Policy, Business Council of Canada

In a story by Voice of America (VOA) about the potential impact on Canada’s immigration system from policies by the new Biden administration, Robert Asselin shared his perspective on Canada’s unique advantage when it comes to attracting global talent for the tech sector and beyond.

“We’re really good at integrating diversity and leveraging diversity as a strength, and when you think about the future of businesses you want all talent to come to your country. I think that we’re one of the best places to immigrate from around the world. If people want to come here and have the best shot at success, I think we’re one of the best countries to do that.”
