Canada to improve economy using Global Talent – For Canada to strengthen its economy using Global talent will require restructuring its policies. The global talent strategy; is a strategy used to attract immigrants with skills and special talent to Canada to work; this will enable the country’s economy to develop faster within a short time.

In past years, Canada has allowed students, skilled and unskilled immigrants to come into Canada to either work, study, or even invest in their economies. As if that’s not enough; lately, they’ve developed plans to quicken the application of immigrants who want to come into Canada from any part of the world.

The Canadian government planned to retain international students permanently in Canada after their studies and has developed a program that allows workers into Canada during the holidays; to come and work till the break is over though the program is not open to immigrants from all parts of the world but some specified countries.

Gradually, Canada is becoming the highest country encouraging global talent, especially in science and technology, Mathematics, and Business.

All these efforts to bring more talents into Canada are the Global Skills Strategy, which also includes the Global Talent Stream, launched in June 2016.
