Canada hopes to attract talents from Indian through its policy

New York: Canada hopes its new global skills strategy will attract highly specialised professionals from India and elsewhere who will contribute to the growth of Canadian companies, according to a senior Canadian minister.

Canada has launched the Global Skills Strategy aimed at facilitating faster access to top global talent for the firms committed to bring new skills to the country and create jobs.

"We are very proud of our thriving Indian community in Canada...We have a thriving Indian community in Canada that is widespread across all provinces and they contribute in many different ways so we anticipate that this will be no different," Canadian Minister of Employment, Workforce Development & Labour Patty Hajdu told PTI here. Hajdu said she anticipates companies in her country will be able to recruit talent from India under the new strategy if the professionals meet the requirements of the firms and will help contribute to their growth.

"Certainly if companies find an employee in India that fits the specifications of what they need, we anticipate that more Indian people will come to Canada," she added.

Hajdu, who was here to participate in the Commission on the Status of Women session at the UN, said the Global Talent Stream will help Canadian companies, particularly those that are experiencing high growth, find extremely skilled labour and talent.

She said if companies in the technology sector and other sectors are able to get professionals with very specialised skills, they will go on to create more Canadian jobs.

"I would anticipate that there may be that kind of talent in India. This strategy is driven by the corporations and companies," she said, adding companies will have to find the specific talent they need whether in India, Europe or the US.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Today will be an industrious day. The stars foretell that you may visit a historical place, or perhaps a museum. However, Ganesha says, you may need to pay a little attention to your health. If such is the case, it would be better to take the evening off for yourself.
