Why Canada?

Sustained immigration over the last 10 years makes the Canadian population one of the most multicultural in the world, with 20% of all the people who live in Canada foreign-born. Due to the large percentage of immigrants, Canada is also known as the world’s most tolerant country and a place where people from various countries, cultures, ethnic groups and religions can feel comfortable together. Canada is unequivocally one of the world’s most socially progressive countries in the world.

Canada is the second largest country in the world and offers expats a warm welcome as well as great job opportunities. Furthermore, Canada is one of the safest countries to live in, and many expats come to live in Canada because of the great quality of life the country has to offer.
