Canada ImmigrationIn next 10 years, Canada will witness one retirement for every two workers. In order to mitigate the labor shortage, Canada's government in November last year set a goal.
The country's government has decided to accept 1.45 million immigrants by the year of 2025. Out of the total, most of them will be trained in health care and other emergency job skills.
In Canada, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser said that the requirement for labors is the need of the hour. He said that there are no divisive and nativist arguments such as jobs in Canada must belong to Canadians.
Ruling and opposition parties in Canada -- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberals and Conservatives -- have positioned themselves as pro-immigration. This has really helped the Canada's immigration policy.
PM Trudeau's new immigration goal will focus on providing jobs and employment to low-skilled workers as well as high-educated professionals.
US ImmigrationIn the US, Republicans have blocked immigration legislation even as Democrats stressed on increasing influx of skilled workers.
US Congress session that concluded in December saw bills that focused on increasing the high-skilled workers and entrepreneurs, failed to get consensus to become law.
