Global turmoil? Here’s why immigrants are turning to Canada

We live in an unsettled world—there’s Brexit in Great Britain, labour conflict in France, immigration issues in Germany and economic hardships across Latin America.

Add to that the messages coming out of the United States about border walls and denied entries. No wonder more and more people are choosing Canada as their immigration destination.

And Canada couldn’t be happier as it is welcoming people from around the world. By 2021, the country is looking to attract 350,000 immigrants each year.

What is the reason? Canada was built by immigrants and is firmly committed to the ideal that the country is made stronger by the diversity of its people. However, Canada also needs more skilled workers to reach its full economic potential.

“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.”

Now is the perfect time for people who want to move to Canada. “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.”

Canada is a place where everyone can thrive, meet their personal potential and live a happy live.

However, simply stating that you’re moving to Canada for a better life is not enough for immigration. The requirements for immigrating to Canada are based on people’s willingness as well as the ability to contribute to the country’s economy.

“When people come to us asking for information, we make sure they meet proper age and education requirements,” Gary says, explaining that Canada Direct can help their clients go through the entire immigration process from the application stage to submitting all documents 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.”
