Ottawa stopped issuing H1B work permits as the program has reached the maximum cap

On July 16, 2023, the Government of Canada announced a new program to issue work permits for H1B visa holders to attract tech talent from the United States. However, the program has reached its maximum cap of 10,000 principal applicants and is closed as of midnight, July 17, 2023. Open work permits issued under this program last up to three years and allow family members to accompany the primary applicants. Spouses and children of the 10,000 H1B visa holders are also eligible to apply for study and work permits and temporary resident visas.
