Canada is one of the world’s four quintessential immigrant countries, along with Australia, New Zealand, and the United States of America. Canada is the largest of these countries and also has the most natural resources.
Immigrants particularly value Canada for its high standard of living and safety. Canada is never in the first ranks when there are conflicts on the international stage, and crime rates within the country are decidedly low.
When it comes to economic conditions, Canada has a markedly low unemployment rate in comparison to other similar countries and a very business-friendly climate that offers many opportunities for commercial development. Hard work still pays off here.
Canada was also largely spared by the economic crisis of 2008 and 2009. We still have economic growth and our banking system does not require support by the government.
Besides one of the lowest unemployment rates, Canada also continues to show economic growth and maintain business-friendly tax rates – the lowest among the G8 countries.
Investors find many opportunities on the real estate market, which has experienced appreciations in value beyond comparison in the last 8 years.
Immigrants find again and again that the educational system is extraordinarily good for children, youth, and students compared to the rest of the world. The same is true of the health care system. Health insurance contributions are among the lowest in the world.
Of course, we cannot fail to mention that Canada possesses world-renowned and incomparably beautiful natural heritage as well as dynamic and lively cities which are a pleasure to explore.
Finally, let us not forget that in Canada a great variety of cultures and backgrounds come together in a unique and peaceful way.
For all the reasons above, it seems likely that Canada will continue to receive many more applications for immigration than it can process. About 250,000 applications for immigration on a permanent visa are processed every year.
