Canada is in a unique position within the plethora of countries people choose to emigrate to, as they possess the world’s most positive attitude to immigration. It would be fair to say that this approach is un-mirrored anywhere else in the world. Immigration Canada is constantly updating policy to accommodate new issues and new problems that arise due to migrating workers.
These policy changes or introductions include, but are not limited to; initiatives to build new housing developments specifically for migrant workers, rule changes to best address the countries need for skilled workers and free language courses for those that do not possess English as their first language.
As such Canada’s drive for migrant workers has seen the economy grow inline with the numbers that they allow to settle in the country. Some cities in Canada are made up of over half foreign-born nationals. Canada currently has a quota of 265,000 immigrants a year, and this is unlikely to be lowered in the next 10 years.
This means that the Canada of today is vastly different to 20-years ago, and one could even go as far as to say it is vastly different to countries around the world. No other country has such a fair and even policy or attitude. Reports about cities such as Toronto and Quebec constantly cite the multi-cultural feel of the areas as one of the over-riding factors people come away with. This is the result of those emigrating to Canada and making it their home.
The largest ethnic group re-settling in Canada are the Chinese and Indian communities. These groups of people are culturally very hard-working and see the lifestyle and options Canada offers as immensely enriching. Canada offers a number of world beating public services that you’d be hard-pressed to match anywhere else.
• Public healthcare
These services re-enforce the belief that Canada is among the world’s top 5 countries to live, while supporting the main pull factor of a blossoming and productive job market.
Those emigrating to Canada rarely question their decision, most times it is regarded as the best choice they ever made. The astonishing part about Canada and the people that live there is that you will be hard-pressed to find a Canadian that has moved away from the country permanently. This it seems is reserved for other nations with Canada seen as the destination.
