Welcome to Migration Matters Canada

Canada is a great place to migrate to if quality of life is your priority! Canada is frequently voted by the World Bank and United Nations as providing the highest quality of life for its residents. For 8 of the past 10 years, the United Nations Human Development Report has ranked Canada the best country in which to live and work in the World. This report is based on measures of life expectancy, educational opportunities, income levels, health, education and gender improvement. This may be one of the reasons that every year, for the past decade, more than 200,000 migrants have settled in Canada on an annual basis and have been granted Permanent Resident Status. This year, the target range is set at 220,000 to 245,000 potentially new immigrants.

The wide open spaces of Canada make it a haven for outdoor pursuits and activities. 1995 saw the World Bank nominate Canadians as the second wealthiest people after Australians - a combination of natural resources, productive assets and human resources led to the award.

About Migration to Canada

If you want to work in Canada, you'll need a good education, as well as employment skills that are currently in demand there. You will need to ensure that your occupation appears on the Occupations List published by the Canadian government, which changes from time to time. You will also need to show that you have met any trade or professional licensing requirements to follow your intended occupation in Canada. A job offer, leading to a work permit from a Canadian employer will dramatically increase your chances of success.

Even if you do not want to work when you arrive, you may qualify for investment migration. The Canadian government is keen to attract immigrant investment to small and medium-sized businesses - even if the investors themselves have no desire to play an active role in the management of those businesses.

Like most countries, Canada's immigration law is complex and much of it is based on units of assessment, which are awarded against each of the criteria that must be met. It is vital to ensure that you apply in the category that provides you with the best opportunity for a successful application.
