In the last year you may have heard a lot of talk about immigrating to Canada for work or for study, but why immigrate to Canada in 2020? What exactly is going on to make now the best time for you and your family to make a new home?

Whether you are looking to relocate for work or are looking at your options for international study, Canada is likely to have appeared in your search options again and again. Recent years in Canada have paved the way for 2020 to be the best year yet to immigrate, so here are just a few reasons why the best time is now.

  1. Canadian are happy!

The Human Development Index is an annual review that looks at population wellbeing and standard of living. Our liberal values, education system and long life expectancy all add to our points total, as do our weather, lifestyle and thriving economy and job market. We score highly year after year, ranking 12th at the start of 2020. The Index even takes the happiness of our immigrant population into account and the overwhelming result is that living in Canada will put a smile on your face.

  1. Our Economy is Booming

Canada has been working hard to boost our population through immigration for some years now and the results have been astounding. By attracting top talent from across the globe, we have managed to maintain our low unemployment rate (5.5%) as we create thousands of new jobs every month.

These new jobs come from a combination of infrastructure roles to support our growing nation and investment from companies from across the globe to grow in Canada. Job creation accelerated in 2019 and 2020 is likely to outstrip this again.

Whether you are a registered nurse, tech worker or plumber, Canada has plentiful jobs for those keen to work in our land and as a result, our economy is booming.

  1. Our Universities Surpass Themselves

Canada has always had a great education system, but through immigration fuelling both the teaching staff and the student population, our further education establishments have gone from strength to strength.

In early 2020, no fewer than 30 Canadian universities were featured in the World University Rankings. Coupled with our extremely high student satisfaction (90% of international students were satisfied or very satisfied – Canadian Bureau for International Education) this states sends a loud message that Canada is currently a top place to continue your studies.

  1. Quick to Settle

If you are looking to create permanent roots in Canada, we’d love to have you! Most countries are looking for temporary workers or short-term Visa applicants but Canada is keen to hold onto the valuable people who come to our land. The C6 Bill only requires applicants to live here for three years in a five-year period to qualify for citizenship. Students are also welcomed to stay once their studies finish. And we’re happy for you to purchase property whenever you wish to; a surprisingly rare occurrence in nations in the G7 and the EU.
