Canada is set to make the Global Talent Stream (GTS) programme, which offers a hassle free and quick route to work in the country, a permanent scheme. This will benefit aspiring Indians (including those currently based in US) who have a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) backgrund, to make the most of emerging job opportunities.
Under this programme, processing of application filed by sponsoring employers takes just two weeks. The icing of the cake is that those hired under the GTS route gain valuable work experience in Canada, which gives them an edge when applying for PR under the Express Entry Route, which is a point based system.
GTS and the Express Entry System offer the key qualities of a good immigration program. A predictable time frame and outcome (subject to meeting of eligibility criteria) and a manageable transparent process.
