How can Indian H-1B workers immigrate to Canada?


Many Indian H-1B workers in the US are looking to immigrate to Canada even as the H-1B program is being heavily curbed by the Trump administration. They are seeking pathways to obtain Canada PR by swapping jobs from the US.

Luckily, there are several Canada immigration options available to Indians, as quoted by the CIC News. The immigration rate of success for Indian citizens is higher than any other nationality.

The Indian nationals were the most successful group for immigration to Canada in 2017. 42% of all the Canada PR invitations under Express Entry system of Canada were offered to Indian nationals. EE is the federal system in Canada for administering applications for immigration. Also, applicants with tech-related jobs experience were more successful than any other industry.

Skilled overseas workers can apply directly for Canada PR under Canadian immigration system if they are eligible for the program. Successful applicants who obtain the Canada Permanent Residency status can reside and work in any location in Canada. They can also access universal social services and healthcare in Canada. Several H-1B workers find this to be an appealing option. This is because their status will not be dependent on possessing a particular job.

There are diverse options for Indian nationals including H-1B workers who are inclined to immigrate to Canada. Below are some of the best options for those Indian nationals who are also eligible for the H-1B Visa:

  • Federal Skilled Worker – Express Entry
  • Provincial Nominee Programs
  • Skilled Worker Quebec
  • Canada Work Visas / Intra-company transfers
