Canada sets to make GTS open for Indians


According to sources Canada set to make the Global Talent Stream (GTS) program, 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) background, to make the most of emerging job opportunities.

Meanwhile under this program, processing of applications filed by sponsoring employers takes just two weeks. The icing on the cake is that those hired under the GTS route gain valuable work experience in Canada, which gives them an edge when applying for permanent residency under the Express Entry Route, which is a point based system and the budget, 2019, mentions that GTS has generated commitments from Canadian employers to create 40,000 new jobs for Canadian and permanent residents.

Vartika Manasvi, co-founder of Stackraft, a tech-talent platform that matches skilled individuals with potential employers said “GTS is not just an immigration program, it is a strategy that companies are adopting to build more diverse and innovative teams”.
