Moving to Canada

Reasons why people move to Canada?

Here are the top 3 reasons why people move to Canada.

  1. Low crime:
    In Canada, violent crime is extremely rare and gun ownership is much lower than in the U.S. For this reason, Canada is ranked at an impressive 9.7 out of 10 for safety and security. Therefore, Canada is one of the top countries chosen when people are looking for a safe environment.
  2. Education:
    The government of Canada spends more per capita on education than any other country in the world. Canada highly values education, ensuring that all their citizens have access to the best schools available, regardless of the citizens’ background. This explains why Canadian children spend more time in education compared to other countries and it also explains why Canadian children perform so well scholastically in a global context.
  3. Multicultural:
    Canada is influenced by an Anglo-French culture, which contributes to making Canada one of the most diverse and multicultural nations in the world. Canada also has one of the highest percentages (8%) of foreign-born members of parliament and government. The predominance of diverse cultures represented in society and government is, from an expat point of view, excellent because it helps foreigners to develop a social life and be accepted and respected in Canada.
