Mendicino asks skilled workers to come to Canada after U.S. immigration ban

Immigration Minister of Canada, Marco Mendicino, has stressed time and again that Canada will remain open to immigrants despite the pandemic. Mendicino directed the message, “Come to Canada” to skilled and talented workers around the world after the United States restricted its immigration for the rest of the year.

Situation in the United States:

The United States has suspended permanent and temporary resident visas in order to tackle the unemployment plaguing the nation. President Donald Trump signed this new Executive Order that ill keep temporary foreign workers and new green card holders from entering the U.S. in 2020. This order is meant to offer a safety net for American workers who lost their jobs because of the coronavirus crisis. The Trump administration believes that such Americans will be able to find employment more easily if they do not have to compete with international skilled workers.

Canada as the best destination for immigrants in 2020:

Minister Mendicino of Canada has a totally different view. Ever since the crisis first made its appearance, he has made many statements assuring that Canada will always be committed to welcoming temporary foreign workers, immigrants, and international students. The Canadian economy has suffered a blow because of the pandemic, but the government believes that immigration will play an important role in restoring normalcy.


During a TV interview, Mendicino reiterated his point and revealed that they have a plan to invite the best and the brightest from across the globe. The multiple immigration pathways offered by Canada helps to attract many different types of immigrants.
