Canadian Tech Firms Step Up

“A group of Canadian technology company founders, executives and investors on Sunday called in a letter for Ottawa to immediately give temporary residency to those displaced by a U.S. order banning the entry of people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

The open letter said U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive order, which temporarily bars travelers from Syria and six other countries and also puts a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States, had already “impacted several in our community.”

“Canadian tech companies understand the power of inclusion and diversity of thought, and that talent and skill know no borders,” said the letter, signed by more than 200 industry players.”
