The Telegraph reported last year that as many as 10,000 British citizens immigrate to Canada each year and The Great White North is ranked as the second-best country in the world for immigration due to several different reasons and it is often professionals that are making the change. This post will look at the six main reasons why professionals choose to immigrate to Canada and offer a few tips for those making the move.

Why Canada Is An Attractive Destination

We have visited Canada as tourists in the past (in the wintertime!) - today, we are bringing you a post about why Canada is an attractive destination for immigrants. The education and employment opportunities are key reasons along with the standard of living, natural beauty, up-and-coming cities and welcoming atmosphere. These are the main reasons that professionals are deciding on Canada as their new home.

#1. Jobs

One of the primary reasons is the number of jobs that are available in many different industries. Canada has experienced labour shortages for a long time, and these have been exacerbated by the pandemic, which means that it should not be too hard for someone to find work.

#2. Free Healthcare

Healthcare is always a key consideration for someone moving to a different country, especially for Brits that are used to free healthcare. Canada also offers free healthcare to citizens, and this will be a major pulling factor for those making the move.

#3. Political Stability

In a time of great political instability seen in places all around the world, Canada is deemed one of the most stable democracies around. Political instability can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety, so this is something that people can avoid when moving to Canada.

#4. Safety

Safety is another important factor to consider when choosing a new home. Canada is rated the third safest country in the entire world with Montreal being the safest city in the world. This makes it an appealing choice for anyone, especially those moving with kids.

#5. Immigration Policy

Canada is also well known for its immigration policy and visa rules, especially when compared to places like the US and Australia. This makes Canada one of the easiest places to immigrate to and it is also one of the easiest places to apply for permanent residency. Of course, immigration will always be complex, so you should seek the advice of an immigration lawyer that will be knowledgeable of Canadian laws and help you through the process.

#6. Immigration Programs

There are also more than 100 immigration programs for those that are employed and self-employed as well as work permits and student programs. And immigration programs go beyond work permits; they embrace family connections too. Before applying for family-related programs, you need to meet family or spousal sponsorship requirements, and conjugal partner or common law partner requirements in Canada (exigences concernant les conjoints de fait au Canada). Again, this can make immigration to Canada much easier and allow people to settle into their new homes much faster.
