Currently, immigration reform is a hot topic in the United States as President Obama is considering all of the options and obstacles available in coming up with a better plan for immigration in the united States.

Canadian Provincial Nominee Program Sets an Example

The column mentions the provincial nominee programs throughout Canada as a shining example of something that can inspire the United States immigration system, as it utilizes the labours and skills that can benefit each province’s economy, with a focus on the employers and what they need, unlike the United States systems. Every province is different, and every province needs different skills and types of workers.

Provinces can choose from skilled workers from all over, sometimes even stealing H1B visa holders that are highly skilled and valuable.

While the United States offers temporary visas to skilled workers that are needed, Canada offers faster permanent residence to skilled workers and their families. In addition, these processing times can take as few as one or two years unlike the 10 years it takes in the United States.

Overall the article is a very interesting read on both countries’ immigration systems and what they can learn from each other. Check it out here.
