What Our Candidates Say

What is Path to Canada?

We are a marketplace to connect tech workers (ex: software engineers, hardware engineers, developers) with Canadian tech companies. All tech workers have US tech degrees and 3+ years of US work experience.

Who are your candidates?

Our candidates are currently working in the US on a work visa (i.e. OPT or H-1B), and are permanently relocating to Canada. Some of them need to leave the US immediately due to immigration challenges, and others are seeking to leave the US due to inability to get US permanent residence.

If I decide to hire one of your candidates, what’s the process for getting them into Canada?

Hiring through Path to Canada will makes it easy. We connect employers with professionals who can guide the process of sponsoring a work visa. The employer will sponsor the new hire’s work visa via Global Talent Stream, Canada’s innovative new work visa program. Work visas are awarded to qualified candidates in 30 days. (Please note, we are currently seeing delays due to COVID-19.)

How does Path to Canada work?

Step 1: Path to Canada will vet candidates for a Canadian employer. We’ll make sure each candidate is a great match for the role, and also qualified for the work visa.

Step 2: The employer will conduct interviews to decide if they’d like to make an offer to hire one of our candidates. Assuming they do, we move on to step 3.

Step 3: Upon candidate acceptance of the offer letter, the employer will apply for Global Talent Stream (Canada’s innovative new work visa program)

Step 4: Once the work visa is approved, the new hire will move to Canada and begin work.

Why can’t we access these candidates on our own?

Path to Canada’s team is based in the US. We are actively marketing to international tech workers across the US. We have built up a sizeable database of potential candidates, and hundreds of new applicants visit our website each month.

What does your service cost?

Our pricing model is similar to agencies. Please contact us for more information.
