Canada Immigration Policy Blossoms while the US Toughens on Indian Techie Immigrants

Under Trump’s government, the H1-B visa has become more difficult to acquire for Indian immigrants in the tech industry. The government has made the tenure shorter and renewal clauses tougher to pass. However, Canada has seen an opportunity to open its doors to the rejected high skilled workers.
