Easy for educated to get jobs in Canada: Uppal

The first turbaned Canadian Cabinet Minister Tim Uppal was in Ludhiana on Saturday and said that getting a job in Canada was no problem, "provided you are skilled and proficient in English or French".

The minister for Democratic Reform said: "We have enough jobs for those who are educated. Our government is also all set to improve immigration rules and a person with a job offer from a Canadian company can be in the country within months - a process which earlier used to take eight years through immigration agents. Now companies will be liaison with government regarding their employment needs. We want to take immigration agents out of the process."

"Our government has already signed an agreement with India regarding social security, higher education and nuclear agreement as our country wants to sell uranium for the upcoming nuclear plants in India."

The minster, highlighting the increasing purchase capacity of the Indian middle class, said the current $ 5.2 billion trade between two countries will likely cross $ 15 billion by 2015 as more Indian companies invest in Canada.
