On March 29, 2022, the Council of Canadian Innovators released Talent & Skills Strategy to address the issues facing high-growth firms and introduced 13 key recommendations for federal and provincial ministries and agencies. According to the release, the Council called on the Canadian Government to introduce a High Potential Tech Visa, allowing the most in-demand professionals to come to Canada without a job offer, review and revise the National Occupation Classification (NOC) codes more regularly to better reflect the changing nature of tech jobs, ease pathways to permanent residency (PR) within the Global Talent Stream visa program, expand the recognition of international and alternative credentials for applicants, and enhance the Global Skills Strategy immigration program with a targeted 48-hour visa processing time.
