Why Now Is The Time To Immigrate to Canada

In spite of the coronavirus pandemic, Canada has issued more ITAs through Express Entry this year than any other. 

So far, the Canadian federal government has invited 61,850 eligible candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence, and we are hopeful that this number will continue to rise in the coming months.

Canada is Student Friendly

In 2019, Canada hosted over 650,000 international students at the post-secondary education level.More than 58,000 former international students have become Canadian permanent residents.

In spite of the coronavirus pandemic, Canada has demonstrated its continued support of international students. The federal government is making it easier than ever to submit an application for a Canadian study permit

This year, Canada has already welcomed more than 67,000 international students from 15 different countries. 

Studying in Canada opens a lot of doors to immigrating to Canada permanently, whether they be through a provincial nominee program or through a federal immigration program.

 

The Canadian Economy is Booming

According to a recent report from Statistics Canada, the Canadian economy added more than one million jobs in June. 

A strong Canadian economy and job market means that Canada’s need for foreign workers increases. This is good news for prospective permanent residents and work permit seekers.

The Canadian government has resumed regular Express Entry draws, issuing invitations to apply to candidates across all categories including Federal Skilled Workers (FSW) and Federal Skilled Trades (FST). 

 

You Can Make Canada Your Forever Home

While a skilled worker could potentially wait decades before obtaining permanent residence in the US, Canada’s immigration system allows skilled workers to apply directly for permanent residence if they qualify for a program. 

If granted permanent residency, a person is given the right to live and work anywhere in Canada, plus access to Canadian universal healthcare and social services.

 

The Canadian Dream is the New American Dream

The number of immigrants coming to Canada has been on the rise over the past few years. From 2015 to 2019, Canada’s immigration numbers rose by 26%

Meanwhile, in the United States, immigration numbers fell by 7% between 2016 and 2018. This trend is expected to continue as Trump’s immigration policies grow increasingly hostile. 

American companies are also looking to their Canada for better opportunities to recruit overseas skilled workers. 

According to Pearl Law’s April survey of global mobility, managers across key industries found that 83% of managers are now more likely to place their foreign talent in other countries such as Canada; and 68% that already have operations in Canada and have sent people there before, now expect to send more.

As U.S. immigration programs become more restrictive, Canada is poised to welcome an unprecedented number of newcomers in the wake of COVID-19.

The Canadian government is continuing to monitor the situation and coming up with ways to simplify the application process. They are urging foreign nationals to continue preparing their applications. Foreign nationals who are interested in building a life in Canada should not be deterred by the limitations of the pandemic, but should see it as an opportunity, and the beginning of their Canadian immigration journey.
