5 Reasons to Immigrate to Canada in 2023

Canada consistently ranks among the most popular destinations for newcomers to immigrate to. With a high quality of life, celebrated multiculturalism, and breathtaking wilderness, Canada has earned its ranking among the top countries in the world.

Canada has a long history of immigration, dating back many decades. Canadian identity is built on multiculturalism, and immigration is woven into the fabric of Canadian life.

The number of newcomers to Canada is expected to rise each year. By 2025, nearly 500,000 newcomers are expected to be welcomed. This is the highest number ever welcomed in a single year.

If you are considering immigrating to a new country, here are 5 reasons why Canada should be top of your list.

1. Job Opportunities

Canada has experienced labour shortages for many years, which have been exacerbated by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Unemployment rates in Canada are at record lows; however, job vacancies are at record highs with Canada recently reporting nearly a million unfilled jobs. Research shows that immigration is crucial to filling job vacancies and addressing growing labour shortages.

Recent immigrants have enjoyed widely improving labour market outcomes over the past few years. According to Statistics Canada, the employment rate for recent immigrants has increased by 8 percentage points since the early 2010s, while earnings among recent economic immigrants rose by 39% percent.

Canada relies heavily on immigration to maintain its population growth. The government regards immigration as an economic stimulus, which it values for its ability to create jobs and boost the economy.

2. Universal Healthcare

Canada has a national health insurance system that ensures that every Canadian citizen and permanent resident will be able to access medical treatment. Unlike some other countries, in Canada, your annual income does not determine your access to medical treatment. Each province and territory has its own health plan that covers different products and services. Newcomers can sign up for their province’s health insurance system and get a health card. Most Canadians do not have to pay for most medical and emergency services through the Canadian healthcare system. Through the public healthcare system, all Canadians do not have to pay for most medical services or emergency services.

3. Education

Canada has been ranked as the most educated country in the world! With about 56% of the population having attended some form of post-secondary studies.  The government provides free public school and mandatory schooling laws ensure that every Canadian has access to basic education. In addition, many universities and colleges offer further education programs such as bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees and doctoral degrees.  Studying in Canada can also help international students apply for Canadian permanent residence.

4. Safety

Canada has a lower crime rate than most other countries in the world. It also has a lower rate of gun violence than the United States, where gun crimes are three times higher than in Canada. In 2022, gun crimes are three times higher in the United States than in Canada. The Global Peace Index consistently ranks Canada among the top 10 safest countries in the world. Statista’s report on LGBT travel safety ranks Canada as the second safest for LGBT tourists.

5. Diverse Multi-cultural Population

Canada passed the Canadian Multiculturalism Act into law in 1988. One of the first of its kind in the world, it enshrined into law the federal government’s commitment to fostering a diverse society.  As defined by Statistics Canada, multiculturalism is an inclusive societal model that encourages cultural differences through education and shared understanding between ethnic groups. A majority of immigrants feel a sense of belonging in Canada according to a past study conducted by Statistics Canada.
