World-class education system, free health insurance and a multicultural ecosystem make millions seek residence in Canada. Happily, the attraction is mutual—the country needs more people, thanks to its low birth rate and an ageing population.

To obtain the coveted Canadian Permanent Resident (PR) status, you need to tick their rather long list of boxes. The good news is that the immigration process—already quite straightforward—became faster in 2015, with the introduction of the Express Entry programme. Since then, thousands have realised their dream of calling the beautiful country their new home.

The ideal immigrant

If you are a young, skilled person who will contribute to its economy, Canada wants you.
