Introducing the "Digital Nomad" program.

The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship of Canada, Sean Fraser, presented a new digital talent attraction strategy that includes a digital nomad program, aimed at allowing more foreigners to work and live in Canada.

In a special announcement at the Collision Conference in Toronto on Tuesday, Fraser stated that this strategy would allow foreign workers to live in Canada for up to six months.

Fraser stated that this is all part of a strategy to attract the most talented professionals from around the world to come and work in Canada.

Fraser also announced a "new and exclusive pathway" to permanent residency specifically available for employers and workers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) sectors.

Finally, Fraser said in response to what has been happening in the tech sector in the US, "where we've seen the public narrative around layoffs," Canada will have a pathway to attract workers from south of the border.

"As of July 16th, we will have a stream that will allow 10,000 H-1B visa holders in the United States to come and work in Canada," said Fraser.
