It seems Canada is going to attract big business due to its immigration policy. In a recent news, Microsoft is opening a new office in Vancouver this fall to develop software programs and locate new talent.
Reason given for the new establishment sounds like businesses in US are not happy enough with their immigration policies. "There's a restriction on the number of visas the company can get for foreign employees in the U.S.," Sharif Khan, vice president of human resources of Microsoft Canada said "Canada's slightly more inclusive in that respect."
Canada is currently the third-largest source of recruits for Microsoft outside the United States, after India and Japan.
