Why Immigrate to Canada?

Canada Background:

Canada is the second-largest country in the world with an area of nearly 10 million square kilometers and with a population of more than 36 million people. (July 2016)

Canada has a declining birth rate, which is lower than its death rate and thus relies on immigrants to keep its population growing. Canada is an outstanding place to live, study, work, invest and to do business.

Canada will provide a stable and successful atmosphere of opportunity to those who choose to become a part of its landscape. Some of the reasons why you might want to consider immigrating to Canada are:

Canada is the BEST Place to Live!

The United Nations has ranked Canada as the best country in the world to live with the finest quality of life, based on the standard of living, life expectancy and educational level of its population.

Canada is ranked number one consistently for a variety of reasons including its excellent education systems, high quality health care, low incidence of crime and clean environment.

Living Standards

Canada ranks sixth in the world in standard of living, behind only the United States, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, and Japan. Canada’s rank among nations tends to rise even higher in assessments that consider GDP per capita along with other factors that contribute to “quality of life.”

Prosperity in Canada:

Canada is an open, democratic and progressive culture where newcomers are welcome to share and contribute to the country’s prosperity and community life.

Canada is one of the world’s wealthiest nations, a member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Group of Eight (G8). Canada has one of the most prosperous, established and open economies in the world. Canada’s economy grew at a faster than expected 2.6% rate in 2016.

Cost of Living:

Canada has the lowest cost of living among G-7 countries. Most Canadians enjoy a high standard of living, and the cost of living varies from province to province. With the highest standard of living, Canada is one of the richest countries and keeps improving in what it offers to its people.

Growing Job Market

Canada faces a critical shortage of skilled workers where every industry is going to need more skilled workers. Industries now experiencing employment shortages include high-tech industries, construction trades, truck transportation, engineering, food services, medical services and many more. The biggest demand is in the oil and gas, forestry and construction industries, but nurses, teachers and retail workers are also needed.

To increase the skilled employment pool in Canada, legislation has been introduced to make it easier for immigrants to enter the country. Immigrants now account for more than 70% of all Canadian labour force growth, a proportion that will grow to 100% in the next 10 years.

Canada is a growing country with untapped potential, which translates into a rising economy and promising job markets. Many jobs and business opportunities are available in Canada and Skilled workers and Businesspersons are required to meet the demand.

The Canadian government accepts businesspersons and skilled workers with economic and professional skills from every part of the world.

Business and Industry

The Canadian economy is the tenth largest in the world behind the US, Japan, Germany, the UK, India, France, Brazil, Italy and China. A fast growing, modern, industrialized nation, Canada offers unlimited potential and opportunity for development in the natural resources, manufacturing, construction, import/export, commerce, high-tech and service industries.

Canada’s economy is expected to grow in the range of 1.8-2% during 2017-2022.

Canada is an outstanding place to live, work, invest and to do business and the federal government encourages immigration to help keep pace with this economic growth.
