The Benefits of Canadian Citizenship
Canada's Quality of Life
For nine out of the last ten years, the United Nations has rated Canada the top country in the world for overall quality of life. Canadians enjoy an exceptional standard of living, good health care, social security, a high level of education, and a safe and clean environment. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms, entrenched in the Canadian constitution, guarantees such fundamental rights as equality, mobility, full legal rights, plus freedom of speech, assembly and association.
A recent survey of people in 20 countries found that the majority placed Canada in the top ten list of countries they would like to live in. Most people consider Canada a generous, peaceful and compassionate nation. On a global scale Canadians are generally viewed as honest, friendly and polite.
Canada presently has a birth rate which is lower than its death rate so consequently we rely on immigrants to keep its population growing. The Canadian economy is currently undergoing unprecedented growth, and both the Federal and Provincial Governments encourage immigration to help keep pace with our economic growth.
The Political Climate
Canada is a politically-stable Parliamentary democracy, with the seventh largest market-based economy in the world. Canadians enjoy one of the world's highest standards of living. Canada is also the second largest country in the world.
Canada has two main levels of government. The federal government has primary control over immigration policy, but recently it has delegated some of that authority to the 10 provinces and three territories. This increases the chances for immigrants to come to Canada, provided they are made aware of the regional opportunities and obtain the necessary endorsements from the appropriate government agencies with the help of qualified immigration professionals. Please contact us about immigrating to Canada under any of the various categories which are outlined in the Immigration Services Section in the main menu at the top of this page.
The Social Climate
Canada is a multi-cultural society. This characteristic is preserved by the constitution and upheld by the courts. Immigrants are encouraged to preserve their cultural identities, enriching the culture and fabric of Canadian society.
Canada is a bilingual country. The two official languages are English and French. Two-thirds of Canadians speak English as their first language. The majority of French-speaking Canadians reside in the Province of Quebec.
Canada is well know as the 'Cultural Mosaic' of the world. Immigrants from almost all countries of the world have chosen to make Canada their new home. As a nation we are very proud to be known as one of the most peaceful, fair and politically stable countries on the planet.
Canada's Policy on New Immigrants
Canada is constantly creating new programmes to attract qualified immigrants. In addition to fostering family reunification and an international humanitarian commitment, immigration provides Canada with economic benefits by adding to Canada's workforce.
