As the second largest country in the world in area (after Russia), Canada is a well-known country for offering its habitants several kinds of advantages.
Canada is always seen as a good place for immigrants. Since years, generations of immigrants have received a warm welcome to Canada. Approximately 20% of Canada’s 35 million people are foreign-born, including over 40 sitting Members of Parliament, which makes Canada one of the world’s most multicultural countries.
In any city of the country, you will encounter myriad languages, religions, and cultures. This diversity has helped to make Canadian residents very welcoming to new arrivals. The fact that you don’t need to let go of your culture or values after moving to Canada is a major plus point to take into consideration. However, you do need to evolve so that you can successfully adjust and have the greatest chance of achieving success. Keeping an open mind will benefit you, as well as those around you.
Known around the world for its excellence, the healthcare system is one of the pillars on which the warm welcome to Canada received by newcomers is built. It’s delivered through a publicly-funded system, which is mostly free at the point of use and has most services provided by private entities.
