Global Talent Stream Provides Quick Access to Highly Skilled Jobs
In Canada, there are many avenues for highly skilled technology workers to obtain permanent residence, including the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) Global Talent Stream (GTS) under which work permits and visa applications Canadians are processed within two weeks.
In terms of percentage of pure growth, the fastest growing job over the next decade in Canada and the United States is expected to be a lone wind turbine maintenance technician. This industry is expected to hire 68.2 percent more of these employees over the next decade at a median annual salary of US $ 56,230.

But a caveat is in order here. These are still very young industries and therefore this rapid percentage growth is taking place on a very small existing base of available jobs. There are expected to be only 4,700 new wind turbine technician jobs and 6,100 new solar panel installer jobs created during this period.
The best bet for an immigrant to Canada looking for an area where jobs will be plentiful is home health and personal care assistance.

And physiotherapy assistants, the fifth-largest profession, are expected to grow 35.4% over the next decade with 33,200 additional jobs created in the United States, for a median annual salary of US $ 59,770.
Those with a fondness for science and math will be encouraged to know that there are three job categories on the list of fastest growing jobs.
