Have you been considering immigrating to Canada? Well right now is as a good a time as any! Here’s why.
As it stands right now Canada has an ageing population and faces a looming labour shortage, immigrants are exactly what we need to sustain our economy and social services. You’ll be moving somewhere where’s there an abundance of opportunity and where you’ll be needed in the 10th largest economy in the world! As well it has a bustling and growing tech sector ready to be taken advantage of!
Another great thing to keep in mind is if you’re granted express entry through the “skilled worker” program you will also be granted the status of “permanent resident”! This means you have many of the benefits a Canadian citizen has from the moment you step onto the country. This includes; universal healthcare, unemployment insurance, social welfare allowance, pension plan, old age pension, childcare benefit, access to our strong public education system and protection under Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. From there, after spending 1095 days in Canada (as long as it’s in 5 years) you’ll be able to apply for citizenship!
Another reason why Canada is one of the best places to immigrate is its multiculturalism. Your transition into Canada will be made much easier as one-quarter of Canada’s population is foreign-born! You are sure to find others who are going through the same experience you are and from your own country as well! Canada is a place where being different is normal and multiculturalism is celebrated and considered a great strength. So much so that the Canadian government has a wealth of resources for new immigrants, to ensure your transition into Canadian life goes as smoothly and successfully as possible. As well on top of all that you’re allowed to have dual citizenship!
As well you’ll be immigrating to a safe country. Canada ranks as the 6th safest country in the world according to 2018’s Global Peace Index. Which takes into consideration factors such as homicide rates, militarization, political stability, diplomatic relations, and ongoing conflicts. As well is known for its strong gun control laws and low crime rates. To add to that, Canada ranked 2nd on the 2016 social progress index, making it one of the best destinations for immigrants.
Not only is it safe but Canada is beautiful from our 200 000 km of gorgeous coastal views to the European architecture Montreal, the streets of Toronto, to the mountain ranges of British Colombia and Canada’s many National and Provincial parks there is something for everyone.
From its economy, multiculturalism, safety, and beauty Canada is the perfect place for you to call your new home.
