Venn contributes to Global Skills Visa Proposal


Earlier this year, Venn Innovation and partner innovation hubs from across Canada (Communitech, BC Tech, MaRS, ICTAM) submitted a Global Skills visa proposal to the federal government to address the challenges tech companies face accessing international talent. The recent announcements in the Federal Fall Economic Statement and by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) recognized the needs the tech community has expressed - including the Global Skills Visa concept. These are positive actions and we are pleased at the pace at which the federal government has adapted immigration policies in direct response to the coordinated effort of tech companies across the country. More details on the implementation of this program remain to be announced and we invite your feedback and comments as we continue participate in helping to shape the rollout of these initiatives.
