Immigrants with PhDs Prefer US to Canada

A report from the Fraser Institute states that Canada lags behind the United States in attracting the world’s most qualified immigrants.

Canada continues to be a desirable place for newcomers with first-stage tertiary degrees (college and university degrees excluding PhDs), but the US appeals to a higher percentage of immigrants with PhDs. 

Newcomers who possess PhDs or STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) training are valuable economic stimulators and policy changes may be necessary to attract them.
