US dream shattered, Indians find greener pastures in Canada
HYDERABAD: After waiting in vain for decades to obtain permanent residency (green card) and realise their ‘Great American Dream’, many Indian families are relocating to Canada. Reasons: Ease of entry, better career opportunities and convenience of settling down. Rough estimates suggest at least 20,000 Indians make this migration — from the US to Canada — every year.
“I went through at least six H-1B visa extensions since I joined work. I was living in constant stress,” said Dinesh Dasari, a native of Hyderabad, who moved from Maryland to Toronto this July. This, after a 14-year-long stint in the US. The solutions architect said his career had stagnated because of the delay in getting a green card. “A person’s green card petition is stuck to the employer. This makes it difficult for you to switch jobs,” said Dasari. “Even moving to a managerial position is difficult because employers are sceptical about grooming and investing in a person who they are not sure will be able to stay in the country,” he added.
The immigration of thousands of Indians comes at a time when the community has been lobbying for the passage of the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019, better known as S386, in the Senate. The bill seeks to end the cap for job-based green cards in the US. Currently, there is a 7% cap on Indians for issuing a green card every year, creating a huge backlog.
Canadian application process much easier: NRIs
There are approxmately 9,00,000 Indians (holding H-1B, L1 and H4 EAD) in the US. When people ask me if they should stay or move, I always suggest the latter,” said immigration attorney Rahul Reddy of Reddy & Neumann, PC, adding the express entry to Canada has made it possible for people to get PR in less than a year. “People can simply apply online without even consulting an immigration attorney,” he said.
在美国，大约有90万印度人(持有H-1B, L1和H4 EAD签证)。移民律师Rahul Reddy说：“当人们问我他们应该留下还是离开时，我总是建议后者。”。他还补充道，加拿大有快速疫苗通道，申请人可在不到一年的时间里获得永久居留卡。“人们甚至不用咨询移民律师，可以自行在网上申请，”他说道。

I have a Canadian PR card, so please read the truth about Canada. I applied for Canadian residency from Saudi Arabia and got it in 8 months. However, after going to Canada to check for jobs, I found most Indians working in coffee shops (Tim Hortons) or at a gas station (petrol pump) or working in car repair shops as mechanics. Most of them have good degrees from India like bankers, engineers and even some doctors. Other Indians were found driving taxs or working as plumbers or electricians. Racism is extremely high in Canada, even though you wont see it openly. Jobs are scarce, and Canada is under heavy snow for 8 months of the year.
The best dream is living in India and realizing one's potential.
No other country in the world is better than India, if our politicians stop creating division among communities.
As long as talent is not recognized due to various factors in our country people opt to go abroad for future.
People will leave india and settle anywhere and everywhere in the world. They will be happy with the racism , third grade treatment, but will not stay in India. 5he sole reason being pollution, unclean people and poor infrastructure.
Esp Telugu people are crazy about going to US... They are ready to kill their parents for going to US..... And they go not to work or earn money but to timepass study and enjoy life......
Where are jobs in Canada?
After 3 years Canada will also become like US if Indians stand for entry like Railway platform.
indian technical tribes! don't they stay in their own country and serve, why do they want to be a second class citizens.
Never seen a more desperate race than indians wanting to leave their own country
I love India. I hate extreme winter of Canada ..we feel alone in Canada....I will not suggest anyone from India to give up their Indian passport. No country is perfect!!

Thsn go back to India.
Canada is too expensive when compared to the US. high taxes, harsh climate.
If you live under Modi's rule, you will be happy to move to even Venezuela.
Have you moved yet ? Because Modi or Yogi will be back in 2024 with 400
This is very much advertisement for immigration to Canada. People in Canada is loosing jobs much faster than American or European. Even most of Canadians prefer to switch over job to United States.
CANADA IS A BAD IDEA. IT IS ONLY GEOGRAPHICALLY CLOSE TO USA. IT IS NOT USA. PEOPLE WILL LEARN AND REGRET ONCE THEY GO THERE.
WAGES IN CANADA ARE VERY POOR..ALL ARE HAND TO MOUTH..
SAVINGS AT THE END OF THE YEAR IS ALMOST ZERO, UNLESS YOU LIVE LIKE A zBEGGAR..
CANADA IS A COLD AND DARK COUNTRY..
I thought since 2014 US and Canadian citizens want Indian work visa
Aus ans NZ are way better than canada due to bad weather!!!!
Beggers cannot be choosers, why run to whites when we have everything here
India is the best place to work and live. Once the COVID epidemic is controlled, the Indian Economy will boom.
