Uber to open engineering hub in Toronto

Uber plans to open a new engineering office in Toronto early next year.

The company said Thursday it is expanding its corporate presence in Canada where it expects to create hundreds of new tech and engineering jobs. It plans to invest more than 200 million Canadian dollars (about $150 million) in the region over the next five years.

Canada will become the transportation company's eighth engineering hub outside the United States.

The move comes as the US government continues to make it more difficult for companies to quickly hire talent from other countries with a cap on processing visas for highly skilled workers and an overhaul of the H-1B visa. These visas are the popular yet controversial work visa used to help fill a skills gap in the United States.
