Canada welcomed more than 32,000 technology workers through migration in the past year, due largely in part to a more immigration-friendly national policy and a labour cost advantage, according to a recent report.

Specifically, between April 2022 and March 2023, 32,115 new workers came to Canada, report The Technology Councils of North America (TECNA) and Canada’s Tech Network (CTN).

Among Canadian cities, the following received the biggest number of migrant tech workers last year, according to the report from TECNA and CTN:
