Canada welcomes newcomers. Here’s why immigrants are saying ‘yes’

Looking at the ongoing economic and political issues across the world, such as Brexit in Great Britain and denied entries at the United States border, there is no surprise Canada is becoming the country of choice for immigrants.

The country is also laying out a welcome mat for people from around the world as it aims to attract 350,000 immigrants per year by 2021.

Why? Canada is known to be built by immigrants and is still committed to the ideal that the country can only become stronger by the contributions of others. However, Canada is also in need of more skilled workers who can help its economy to grow.

“Canada welcomes everyone regardless of race or religion,” says Rachel Gary, COO of Canada Direct. “The Canadian government wants brilliant minds and skilled workers to come here.”

If you’ve always wanted to move to Canada, now is a perfect time. “More and more people want to become Canadian citizens,” Gary says. “North America has always had huge appeal to people from around the world, even Europeans. Now, with everything that’s happening in the States, more are turning to Canada.”

People see Canada as a country where they can succeed and meet their personal potential.

However, the immigration process is not that easy. The requirements for immigrating to Canada are based on people’s willingness and ability to contribute to the economy.

“When people come to us asking for information, we make sure they meet proper age and education requirements,” Gary says, explaining how Canada Direct can help candidates through the immigration process from the very beginning to submitting documentation for permanent residency.

“There are things that the Canadian government asks of the potential immigrant. It works on a points system and we help people get the required number of points. For instance, everyone, even if they are native speakers, has to take an English proficiency test. We provide the course and help them prepare. We let them know which documents they need and how to bring them up to Canadian standards. If they are able to apply to multiple programs, we do hybrid applications.”
