IMMIGRATE TO CANADA
Canada is a country built by immigrants. Immigration remains an important part of Canada’s future. Although Canada is the second-largest country in the world (only behind Russia), it has a population of 31 million people. Its economic growth is tied to attracting newcomers to Canada to continue building the country. Canada continues to attract immigrants in near record numbers through a wide range of programs. In addition to Federal Government programs, all 10 provinces and 2 territories are now offering their own immigration programs, aimed at attracting immigrants to their own particular region. This diversity of programs allows potential immigrants an abundance of options to come to Canada.
