Canada loves to hire British and Irish-born migrant workers when it comes to assigning laborers to do the 3 Ds' - difficult, dangerous and dirty = jobs.
According to the BBC News, "Visit any construction site in Calgary and you're likely to find some British and Irish workers, says Adrian Bourne, the boss of a company that supplies electricians in the Canadian city. Out of the 200 people that Mr Bourne has on his books, 70 are from the UK and Republic of Ireland."
So as US President Barack Obama raises taxes and imposes massive regulations on businesses, Canada, located north of the USA, has become more popular for business people, blue-collar workers and skilled technicians.
As reported by the BBC, "As Alberta's economy continues to boom, led by its extensive oil industry, an estimated 114,000 additional trades positions need to be filled by firms of all sizes across the province by 2021. That projection comes from Calgary Economic Development (CED), a government agency dedicated to supporting the economy in the wider Calgary area."
Jeanette Sutherland, CED's workforce manager, crosses the pond (Atlantic Ocean) twice a year to recruit British and Irish migrant workers to live and work full-time in Calgary.
