Life at Canada
Attracting over 3,50,000 immigrants from all over the globe each year, Canada is ranked among the top 10 countries to live in. It is the 2nd largest country in the world, with over 37 million people. With a thriving economy and breathtaking scenic landscapes, Canadian citizenship offers people a very high standard of living.
The government of Canada is dedicated to economic growth, which is why they are recruiting more workers and new immigrants.
Canada has become the BEST place for new immigrants to succeed socially, and economically, and to live longer with excellent, national healthcare! Canada ranks among the “top wealthiest and top quality-of-life” countries in the world, according to OECD Better Life Index.
Why choose Canadian citizenship
According to a survey by Canada’s Federation of Independent Business, as reported in the Reader’s Digest, 1 out of 20 jobs remains unfilled because of an inability to find suitably-skilled labor. This represents over a quarter of a million vacant jobs in small-and medium-sized businesses alone. Nearly 7.5% of jobs went unfilled in the skilled construction market, as well as the business service and agricultural sectors.
Canada has an impressive trillion-dollar high-tech industry. The country is also rich with natural resources, including iron, diamonds and gold, plus its oil resources are the 3rd largest in the world.
According to Statistics Canada (2017), the median household income for Canadian citizens in 2015 was $70,336 per year. As reported in Money Sense, during the last ten years, the Toronto Stock Exchange has risen 59%, compared with a 3% gain for the MSCI World Index and a 4% loss for the S&P 500.
The Canadian dollar has also appreciated 47% against the U.S. dollar and 16% against the euro over the past 10 years. Since the 1990s, Canada’s federal government has maintained a budget surplus and was barely touched by the global recession. Canada also has a low unemployment rate, plus there has been an increase in full-time jobs with high-paying positions and a decrease in the part-time job market.
All Canadian citizens qualify for Canada’s health care system. It is publicly funded and administered on a provincial or territorial basis, within guidelines set by the federal government. Health care coverage includes preventative care, medical treatments, as well as access to hospitals, dental surgery and additional medical services. Canadian citizens have one of the highest life expectancies (about 80 years) and lowest infant mortality rates of any of the industrialized countries. According to the Conference Board of Canada, the country ranks 2nd among 17 peer countries.
Canada has been delivering a high-quality education to people between the ages of 5 and 25 with comparatively modest spending. Canada’s high school graduation rate is relatively high. Canada has 2 official languages- English and French. However, with the high diversity of immigrants coming to the country, there are also many other languages spoken in Canada. Multiculturalism is, therefore, very well-engrained in the country, with widespread acceptance of people from all different races and religions. Canadian citizenship has something to offer for everyone.
