Why Move to Canada?

Canada has long been attractive to people all over the world looking to move to another country. Canada has many types of immigration programs and welcomes those looking to move with open arms. But why is Canada such a sought-after place to immigrate to? What about it makes it an ideal destination for beginning a new life? With an increasing influx of workers and citizens alike, anyone choosing to move abroad should consider Canada as a key contender for their destination due to a range of reasons that make it superior to many other options elsewhere.


Canada is, first and foremost, a multicultural country, that celebrates its diversity, encouraging people of all cultures, backgrounds, and religions to live together in harmony. They do not place restrictions on religion or identity and they are as open to those who are among the LGBTQ+ community as they are to non-white ethnicities, proud of their ‘mosaic’ identity.


The openness and acceptance are highlighted in the many different immigration forms that Canada offers, with different programs for skilled workers, refugees, and students, just to name a few. Canada is one of the few developed countries that hasn’t reduced its limits on the number of immigrants it will accept, which is especially important at a time when many developed nations are shutting their borders to outsiders even more.


Additionally, once in the country, immigrants are not restricted on where they can work or live, as they can be elsewhere, and are allowed the same freedoms and rights as any Canadian-born citizen.


The job market in Canada is strong, with industries such as tech developing at lightning speed, and the majority of immigrants coming in on Canada’s Skilled Worker Visa – bringing knowledge and expertise from outside to further help boost Canada’s economy as it prospers, which it has been doing steadily without issue for many years.


With a booming economy and an active job market comes a high standard of living for residents and citizens, including services such as Universal Healthcare and world-class education; with some of the best academic achievements found anywhere in the world and a wide range of well-respected schools and universities. Additionally, other public services are well funded – for example, Canada has one of the lowest crime rates in the world, making it a very safe and secure country to live and choose to raise a family in.


Not only is this security important on an individual level, but also on a national one – Canada has a politically stable democratic government, with every citizen having the right to vote. These factors are vital to many refugees coming from war-torn countries or seeking asylum, from places where every moment is unpredictable. To those in privileged, often western countries, such necessities are often taken for granted, but they should not be underestimated, a factor which much of the Canadian social support and immigration procedures are designed to include awareness of.


Beyond the great reach of their public services, economy and diversity is the wonder of Canada’s natural beauty. It is a country where the focus is often placed on The Great Outdoors, and people often make the most of the wonders on their own doorsteps. From soaring mountains to picturesque coastal views, hiking trails to national parks, there is both breath-taking landscape and ideal ways developed so we can preserve and enjoy it. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the country also has more coastline than anywhere else in the world – over 200,000 km, meaning that if beaches are more suitable for you than mountainous peaks you will have plenty to explore.


Even Canadian cities, while not natural, are still architectural masterpieces. Of course, with all these different landscapes comes many different types of outdoor activities, and many people who prefer an active, outdoors lifestyle are drawn to Canada in particular as a result of these interests. Though outsiders can often think of Canada as just being snowy, arctic tundra there are actually many different biomes across the country with a wide range of weather and distinct seasons including warm summers, particularly along the western coast that is bordered by the Pacific Ocean.


Whatever your favored environment might be, Canada can cater to most of them, providing among the best in terms of natural diversity as they do culturally, economically, and socially.


It is not just Canada’s own wondrous landscape that people gain access to once they have become a Permanent Resident or Citizen of Canada however – such positioning gives those who want it easier access to the United States of America, which can be important for those needing to travel for business. Canadian passport holders are also able to move more freely to several other countries, and due to the ways in which Canadian citizenship and passports are set up citizens don’t need visas to travel to many countries across the globe.


Overall, there are many benefits that make Canada an attractive country for anyone looking to immigrate, from their stable economic and political structures to the wide range of immigration plans available, from their social support and universal healthcare to their high standards of living, there are many benefits to immigrating to Canada. Such benefits are supported by a diverse, multicultural spread of people from many different backgrounds and a breath-taking backdrop of some of nature’s most beautiful features.


It is also one of the safest countries you could choose to raise a family in, and your children will receive some of the best education in the world, while you will have a thriving job market and economy to enter as you support them in your new way of life. Ultimately, regardless of how you reach Canada or who you are, you will find community and culture, without any force to assimilate or become anyone other than yourself. Canada is in many ways the ideal country to move to, and most certainly one where you will be welcomed in with open arms.
