Canada has topped the U.S. as the most attractive destination for foreign workers, according to a report on global talent. The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and The Network surveyed a total of 209,000 people in 190 countries.
The reason why the US falls behind Canada is due to the strict Immigration rules under the Trump administration or the widespread social unrest caused to police brutality which turned into a nationwide protest named “Black Lives Matter”.
Another reason that makes the USA behind the race is the ongoing pandemic. How countries are dealing with the COVID-19 is a major contributing factor among foreigners. According to the survey between October and December 2020, only 50 percent of people are only willing to work abroad while the rest prefer to work remotely for companies in the USA and Canada.
Canada ranked highest in terms of degree holders, doctorate, and those under 30 with specialization in the digital field.
