On the heels of H-1B changes, Canada looks to recruit more foreign workers

Entrepreneurs around the world applaud Canada's special provisions for hiring highly-skilled foreign employees

Canada will make it easier for foreigners to work in their country and bring needed business-tech skills to the growing economy.

Under a new system which will start next year, people who want to immigrate into Canada will make an online profile on a website. "Based on this profile and the education of those who apply, we will rank them," Chris Alexander, Canada's minister for Immigration and Citizenship, told Business Today. "After this we will invite these professionals. Once they complete their applications, we will process their papers within six months."
