More and more foreign nationals are looking to Canada as a viable immigration destination. The main attractions are a more stable economy than the U.S., available jobs, affordable housing, healthcare coverage, excellent schools, and cultural diversity.
“There are really no trade-offs, you get many benefits from living in Canada without having to compromise anything but the climate in some regions. But the good news is that you can afford to buy a nice down coat to keep you warm, and still live very nicely,” says Canadian immigration attorney Véronique Malka, who specializes in outbound immigration to Canada from the United States.
Canadian Immigration and Citizenship (CIC) has, over recent years, created numerous immigration programs to attract a qualified and diverse labour force from abroad. For example, the Canadian Experience Class program is geared to helping foreigners with Canadian work experience become permanent residents of Canada. The Provincial Nominee programs across the nation, governed by each province separately, have also successfully attracted a number of excellent candidates to live and work in Canada.
