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. The numbers of immigrants seeking to move to Canada has also surged following the election of President Trump in the US.
“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.
Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) 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.

On June 8, 2017, the Canadian Law Group’s managing lawyer, Véronique Malka, a former member of the Executive of the Canadian Bar Association, spoke to an audience of immigration lawyers in Toronto, at the Ontario Bar Association. The Topic was the hot button issue of navigating the U.S. – Canada border in the era of Trump and Trudeau. She was joined by a panel of seasoned cross-border immigration experts on the subject. The discussion concerned key issues such as the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement, what is actually happening at the U.S. and Canadian borders, President Trump’s executive orders, and upcoming other immigration legal changes in the United States.
Véronique Malka brought the practice of Canadian Immigration out of Canada and into the U.S.A. in 2005. She is a licenced Barrister & Solicitor in Ontario since 1995 and a Foreign Legal Consultant in New Jersey since 2006. She has been doing Canadian immigration for over 17 years.
