Canada poaching our temporary skilled workers

From Forbes:

It is a fact that H1B visa workers from countries such as India, China, Mexico, and the Philippines face legitimate concerns about their long-term status and stability in the United States. For example, America offers no automatic path to permanent residence for H1-B workers, their work visas are only temporary, H1-B spouses and children cannot work without authorizations,

Starting from July 16, 2023, U.S.-based H1-B workers and their immediate family members will be able to apply for open Canadian work permits of up to three years, enabling them to explore employment opportunities with almost any Canadian employer. [An arrangement with a specific employer is not required to use this program.]

Other new initiatives are described here.
