Canada

Canada is one of the world’s most migrant friendly nations. Bordering the US, Canada is a massive country that holds a lot more global sway than its small population would suggest.

With a beautiful landscape, free healthcare, free education and a strong social welfare system, Canada offers an idyllic life for migrants to settle with their families. Cities like Toronto and Vancouver are vibrant, cosmopolitan metropolises that are welcoming to all. The French speaking province of Quebec offers a unique flavour to the Canadian way of life.

For migrants, Canada is a unique destination. By positively harnessing immigration, Canada has created a culture that becomes richer with every accepted migrant. Several generations of migrants now call Canada home and pockets of Indian, Chinese, Bangladeshi, and other communities all live in harmony here.

About Canada’s immigration process:
  • - Highly streamlined immigration programs for professionals of all backgrounds to settle with their families.
  • - The Regional Nominee Programs, Trade Skills Programs, Entrepreneur Programs and other focused immigration programs are ideal for applicants.
  • - By making it easy for talent from across the world to apply for a Canadian PR, Canada hopes to become more competitive on the global stage.
