The immigration and tax regime of the new Trump administration claiming to protect American businesses and employees may in fact negatively affect the Americana businesses and offer opportunities for other economies and communities like the Canadian economy. Some of the benefits Canadians see in Trumps immigration and tax reforms include:

Canadian Industries may have increased access to US markets

Increased access to US markets with well-developed infrastructure and a structured taxation policy that offers Canadian firms a level playing ground with other developing countries to compete on price levels. All of this results in an increased business activity for Canadian businesses.

Increased business activity will lead to an increase in the demand for skilled manpower. Trump’s immigration policies will help Canadian policies scout fine talents from across the world.

Canadian Liberal Immigration Policy:

In response to the growing need for high skilled, low cost labor, Canadian government has liberalized its immigration policies.

The government has announced a bounty of $113 million to companies that hire students for summer jobs, commercial businesses can claim 50% of the wages paid to such students for a duration of 6 – 16 weeks. This policy continues up to 2018. An estimate puts the number at 300,000 in government grants that conidian companies will receive each year.
