The Technology industry leaders in Canada of Indian origin have said that the contentious immigration curbs that are being imposed and proposed by US administration led by Donald Trump will be of advantage for investment and technology professionals’ recruitment in Canada.
CEO of Fantasy 360 Shafin Diamond Tejani has said that this will provide an amazing opportunity for the top talents from #India to #immigrate, work and reside in Canada. Fantasy 360 is a global leader based in Vancouver that creates games and immersive experiences using Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Mixed Reality.
Tejani, whose family hails from Gujarat in India, also added that their firm is already receiving queries from technology professionals from India and the US regarding relocating to Vancouver, quotes Times of India.
Tejani along with his partner Ray Walia is working on modernized avenues to appeal to technology talents from India. Walia is another Indian origin resident in Vancouver managing the non-profit technology platform Launch Academy.
Both Tejani and Walia are a part of the tech community that has given a written request to the Canadian PM Justin Trudeau demanding him to provide visas to the immigrants and technology professionals who have been stranded by the immigration curbs being imposed by Trump.
The letter stated that by welcoming diversity Canada can spearhead innovation that will be of advantage to the world. By opting to mentor, train and hire the top talents in the world, Canada can build international firms that will develop its economy.
Tejani along with his associates’ plans to bring several Indian start-up ventures to British Columbia with a focus on Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Mixed Reality as it has a scarcity of skilled technology professionals and programmers.
Tejani also expressed confidence that he and his associates would achieve this. His firms have started more than 40 business ventures in 21 diverse nations having employee strength of 350 and having yearly revenue of more than 100 million dollars.
Ray Walia has been prompted by the curbs that are being proposed by the US to start dedicated services for technology professionals from India who are inclined to move to Canada. Launch Academy co-founded by him in 2012 has emerged as the leading incubator among start-ups.
Walia has created a program at his Lunch Academy that positively influences the utilization of startup visa in Canada. This program facilitates overseas start-ups to move their head offices to Canada and secure permanent residency for at least five members of the start-up ventures and the family members within six months.
The Start-up visa of the launch academy permits Indian firms to be at an advantage in both the nations. The firms are facilitated to develop their business in Canada and continue to serve the Indian clients and grow in the domestic markets as well.
