Facebook is establishing a temporary base in Vancouver for approximately 150 software engineers, according to The Vancouver Sun.
The purpose of the new office is twofold.
First, it will operate as a "boot camp" of sorts to train recent graduates while evaluating them for full-time jobs.
Second, it's also a spot where the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company reportedly can hire and place new employees while they wait for U.S. work visas.
For reference, Facebook has engineering offices in Seattle and New York City aside from its Silicon Valley headquarters.
The move is also said to reflect CEO Mark Zuckerberg's support to hire more highly-skilled immigrants to fill skills gaps in the United States.
