This is an amazing initiative by the government! Good for VC money, good for innovation, and good for job creation down the line and the Canadian economy. Winning.
Venture investment funds would choose entrepreneurs in whom they would invest, and the government would try to clear them for entry into Canada within weeks. The idea is to unite Canadian money and foreign brains. An initial source of candidates could be frustrated foreigners in the high-tech sector in the United States who have not been able to land resident status there.
