MobSquad software developer, André Ferreira, was recently featured in a Nearshore Americas article, where he commented on the advantages of Canada’s immigration system in comparison to that of the United States.  While the wait for a green card in the US can take many years, even decades for immigrants from certain countries like India, Canadian permanent residency can be secured in under a year, and Canadian citizenship in under four years.  This, along with Canadian permanent residency not being tied to employment status, has provided André a level of certainty and stability not available to foreign-born technology workers in the US.
