Till the month of Nov 2019, 80,685 Indian citizens had opted for Canada PR, which is up 105 percent from 39,705 people in the year 2016, as per the National Foundation for American Policy’s (NFAP) analysis of data from Refugees, Immigration, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
It is not an accident that the number of Indian citizens who are selecting to study in Canada and migrate to Canada has grown in the meantime as it has become further challenging for Indian citizens to work in the USA and immigrate to the USA, told Stuart Anderson, National Foundation for American Policy (N.F.A.P) executive director.
The way the information is structured, it is not feasible to discover how many Indian citizens have moved straight from India, and how many Indian citizens from the USA, the study stated.
Since Trump became President of USA by winning elections on the sentiment of anti-immigration speech, he has hardened rules and imposed limitations on the US immigration, which includes the US work visa, influencing tech professionals principally from India.
Rejection rates for US H-1B visa, the short-term US work permit for the high tech talent, has increased to 24 percent in the initial three quarters of the fiscal year 2019, related to around 6 percent in fiscal year 15, as per the data from the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS).
The other purpose for an increase in Indian newcomers into Canada is likely due to the rise in Indian students to Canada, which increased 127 percent to 172,625 individuals in the year 2018 from 76,075 individuals in the year 2016.
