PM roles in Canada - Bias to Permanent Residents?
Need someone in the canadian tech space to share insights.
I'm a new permanent resident to Canada having recently held a Senior/Lead PM role at a global (fortune 500) financial institution covering payments, eCommerce & Transaction products.
I've realised that irrespective of my experience working with a global product team and winning awards, it seems like a herculean task to get interviews for PM or senior PM roles in canada, as "Canadian experience" seems to trump my chances.
I would love if someone can provide clarity.. That said, I'm in the market for a PM role. Any help will be appreciated.
