Why Immigrate To Canada Now?

Canada needs to support its economy, aging demography, and improve its population rate. It hopes to seek a solution in increasing the immigration levels in the upcoming years.  


Canada is planning to welcome 400,000 new immigrants annually including refugees. The new Immigration Levels Plan for 2021-2023 calls for over 60% intake through 80+ economic-class immigration streams – Federal Skilled Workers Programs, Canada Experience Class, Provincial Nominee Programs, etc. 


Foreign skilled workers with/without work experience in Canada, international students aspiring to study and settle in Canada, and foreign entrepreneurs looking to establish their business in Canada are most likely to benefit. 

The fact that Canada is the most preferred migrant destination, ahead of Australia and the USA is no less a reason to migrate to Canada!
