The Saga of COVID-19 & The Changing Immigration Trends
The novel coronavirus also known as COVID-19 is here to stay for longer than expected. While it has impacted every sector of the economy, travelling and immigration sector is one of the worst affected. With so much going on for the world to register, there have also been speculations about the changing trends of global immigration with special emphasis on the United States of America (USA) and Canada applicants. To create a cause and effect logic for a better understanding about the whole scenario, we’ve shared a thorough explanation of what the situation is at present and how it’s likely to create an impact in the day sand months to come.
USA and Canada are two prime destinations attracting immigrants but with the onset of coronavirus pandemic, it seems that the interests of the governments have been wavering. In one of his recent statements addressing the current scenario, US President Donald Trump mentioned, "We have a moral duty to create an immigration system that protects the lives and jobs of our citizens". Followed by this came an announcement of the suspension of H-1B,L and other temporary work permits. Looked upon as a disappointing turn, this is a sudden move by the US President that will tighten the vacuum of retaining skilled professionals at an affordable cost.
Canada in comparison to the USA is adjusting better to the new reality of these tough times. Looking forward to an economic recovery, the country is heavily relying on the international population to overcome its demographic challenges. A major chunk of this population is expected to be from niche specific industries like the healthcare, IT, accounting and the essential care workers.
The government of Canada is taking measures to favor the Canadians and help them by providing monetary aid under the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB).
Stated by the government records, “The Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) gives financial support to employed and self-employed Canadians who are directly affected by COVID-19. If you are eligible, you can receive $2,000 for a 4-week period (the same as $500 a week). If your situation continues past 4 weeks, you will need to apply for the CERB again. You may re-apply for up to a total of 24 weeks.”
“The provision of CERB is an iconic development by the Government of Canada to support and nurture the pool of global talent, thriving to breakthrough during these challenging times. Canada is now becoming the number one choice for all the international migration applicants and it is happening for all the right reasons. This is also seen as a myth buster for a majority of the population that believes that the USA is the only country working to make the situations favorable for its people”, says Tek Chand, founder of Travel Tricks, a well-known name in the field of tourist visa specialization.
To reiterate, it is advisable for all the international applicants to choose Canada as your prime destination if you’re planning to opt for ‘Permanent Residency’ programs. The ‘Express Entry’ and ‘Federal Skilled Workers’ programsare on top priority to lead you to the path of a reliable and stable career growth in Canada.
