Canada is uniquely positioned to be one of the world's greatest countries — ranked 10th based on economy and 5th based on happiness. Additionally, if job opportunity is a concern for you, Canada has plenty of open positions that desperately need to be filled by qualified and skilled workers.
Canada is also experiencing a major influx of new applicants, with over 400,000 being accepted this year alone, with the number expected to rise over the next few years, based on the multi-year immigration to Canada program that was developed to stabilize the economy post-COVID.
We went ahead and outlined a few reasons why moving to Canada is a great idea in 2021, and onwards:
As mentioned before, Canada is revamping their entire immigration system to better adapt to the world post-pandemic. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) continued to accept and process applications throughout the entire pandemic, the global restrictions on travel took a heavy toll.
To compensate for the drop in applicants, the IRCC aims to increase Canada's population by 1% between 2021 and 2023, including 401,000 Canadian PR applicants in 2021, 411,000 in 2022 and 421,000 in 2023. These numbers dwarf the previously estimated numbers of 351,000 in 2021 and 261,000 in 2022, respectively.
So if you’re looking to be moving to Canada soon, or have questions on how to, don’t wait any longer!
In fact, the OECD praised how effective Canada has been with its Express Entry system and how easily it can process and find reliable jobs for the thousands of new workers entering the country.
To piggyback on our last point, jobs are plentiful right now — over 500,000 open positions, 80% of them full-time!
As for which industries are hiring, short answer, all of them!
It’s all good news for the Canadian economy with positions available within the manufacturing, food, retail, construction, education, warehouse, transportation and STEM sectors — anyone looking for a job?
So once again, if you’re planning on moving to Canada, now is a great time to do so.
Out of all the sectors, IT is booming the most.
Canada has put a major initiative in providing support for all tech-related companies, especially start-ups!
The world is quickly becoming more and more digitized, and Canada is making sure not to fall behind.
This may come as a surprise to you, but Canada offers a world-class education system.
Some of the world's greatest universities can be found here: the University of Toronto, McGill, McMaster and the University of British Columbia.
If you’re wondering whether or not your children will receive a proper education upon moving to Canada, you have nothing to worry about.
One MAJOR benefit to moving to Canada is the healthcare system.
Reliable, professional and with its patient-first approach, you can be sure to receive the appropriate level of care and treatment to whichever problem(s) you might get.
Every resident in every province receives a health card that they can use to get access to various health facilities and services throughout Canada, so no matter where you move, you’ll be safe.
There’s a reason Canada is known as a “Cultural Mosaic” and not a “Melting Pot” — we love diversity over here!
Nearly 20% of all of Canada’s population is of foreign origin (like myself), making living here feel like you’ve never left home. Every major city, i.e. Toronto, boasts many different city regions dedicated to one specific culture.
It doesn’t matter from which part of the world you hail from; Canada has a spot for you and is ready to embrace you with open arms.
You can be sure that someone will wave at you, smile and wish you a great day at least once a day.
You thought the whole “we’re too nice” stereotype wasn’t real?
You’d be wrong.

This goes back to the many job opportunities that are available within Canada.
Canada is huge, 2nd to only Russia in terms of landmass and natural resource availability.
What does this mean for you?
It means there is an adventure to be had, and many beautiful scenic areas to visit!
Whether it be the Rockies, any of the great lakes, or a trip down to a Conservation Park, the options are limitless.
The overall landscape for moving to Canada looks promising for both people already in the country and those yet to be accepted.
There is a huge emphasis on immigration moving forward with plans to kick-start the economy and soar Canada to bigger and better places, truly solidifying itself as one of the world's greatest countries.
