The number of high-tech workers going to Canada to apply for jobs has significantly increased. This is especially true in the Greater Toronto Area, referred to as the Silicon Valley of the North. The area has always attracted IT workers from all over the world, but the number of Americans moving to Canada has spiked.
The Toronto area has roughly 2,500 start-up companies specializing in high-tech. Applications from Americans wanting to work and live in Canada has increased.

The prime minister believes these individuals will make substantial contributions to the country’s economy. Contact Become a Canadian if you are interested in living and working in Canada!
