The Benefits Of Immigrating To Canada

The Benefits Of Immigrating To Canada

Immigration has always existed, and for centuries people have been leaving their homelands for various reasons. Nomad tribes moved around in search of new pastures for their cattle, and new places for hunting, and fishing. Later, people began to migrate in search of more fertile land and to establish new settlements. 

Today, in the 21st century, migration still takes place all over the world, but people do not migrate to other countries for the same reasons that nomads did in the past. They migrate to find work, to live a better quality of life, to be closer to friends and family, and escape violent conflicts (to live peacefully). 

Although there are 195 countries around the globe, one of the most popular immigration destinations is Canada. Last year, Canada welcomed the most immigrants in a single year in its history: More than 401,000 people became new permanent residents in Canada in 2021.

Many people wonder: what makes living in Canada so attractive to so many people from other countries? There are many answers to this question, but this article will give you the most prominent ones.

Free high-quality education

Canadian education at all levels – primary, secondary, and higher – is synonymous with confidence and high-quality. In 2021, the country ranked fourth behind the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. 

Education in Canada is free from primary education all the way up to a Canadian high school diploma. This is one of the major benefits permanent residents enjoy when they move to Canada. 

Canada is home to one of the best educational institutions in the world. According to QS World University Rankings® 2022, the University of Toronto, McGill University, and the University of British Columbia are among the top 100 universities in the world. 

The tuition fees for permanent resident students are comparatively low as compared to those for international students with options of subsidies by the Canadian government.

Medical  Benefits

Canada has a tax-funded universal health care system. As a result, Canadians and permanent residents enjoy free, government-funded health care. All health care services (such as the services of physicians and other health professionals) can be obtained with a health card, which must be presented at the time of service. 

The quality of health care in Canada is excellent. According to a report by the numbero, Canada ranks 26th with a score of 71.31 on healthcare. 

Just like education in Canada, Permanent residents in Canada do not have to spend a single penny on healthcare and they can enjoy the state-of-the-art healthcare services and facilities of Canada.

Social Benefits

Immigrants also enjoy many social security benefits in Canada. These benefits include subsidies, basic pensions, family tax benefits, workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance, etc. The Social Insurance Number (SIN) is a must to access social benefits.

With all the social benefits that permanent residents receive from the Canadian government, they can be assured that their standard of living and quality of life will not, as far as possible, be severely affected by any social or economic event. 

Safety and security

Feeling safe, stable, and secure is fundamental to our well-being. When we feel safe, it is easier for us to reach peace, and peace is very important in our lives. Canada is considered one of the safest destinations in the world. According to Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection’s 2022 report,  Canada is the third safest country in the world.

Similarly, according to the Global Peace Index 2022, Canada is the 10th most peaceful country in the world. Historically, the country has always been disinterested in most international conflicts. And, of course, there have been no civil wars in this country from the beginning. In short, permanent residents can expect the safety and security in Canada they need to get their life in order.

Standard of Living 

Canada is a shining star that provides a  high standard of living to its residents and citizens. In 2018 and 2020, Canada was ranked first in the quality of life sub-ranking of the Best Countries ranking. Canada also ranked 12th in the 2018 Human Development Index (HDI) report from the UN, which is based on several factors such as life expectancy, per capita income, and so on.

Stable political system

Political stability helps a country achieve sustainable development and forms the basis of economic growth. 

Canada is considered a very stable democracy. In 2020, it ranked fifth on the Economist Intelligence Unit’s World Democracy Index, ahead of all North American countries. 

Permanent residents in Canada can be assured that the country will run smoothly, and there will be peace, predictable economic behavior, entrepreneurship, innovation, etc. 


Underemployment causes higher poverty levels in the country. Without sufficient income, families buy less, which reduces consumer demand, and slows economic growth. As a result, the growth of the nation declines. But that’s not the case in Canada. 

Permanent residents in Canada can expect an ample amount of job opportunities in Canada. The unemployment rates are at record low in Canada. The number of vacancy rates, in contrast, is at a record high: Canada recently reported more than 900,000 unfilled jobs which they are aiming to fill with immigrants. 

Robust economy

Permanent residents and citizens enjoy a high standard of living, excellent medical and social benefits, and high-quality education due to Canada’s robust economy. Canada is the tenth-largest economy in the world (as of 2022) with a GDP of $1.71 trillion. 

As mentioned earlier, the job market in Canada is booming. There are employment opportunities in many industries in Canada, including high demand in the oil and gas industry as well as healthcare, infrastructure, and construction. 

Moreover, Canada has become a widely recognized center for tech talent in recent years, with the Canadian city of Toronto recently earning the title of fastest-growing tech hub in North America, surpassing even Silicon Valley. Other Canadian cities also have booming job markets, including two other major immigration destinations, Vancouver and Montreal.

Permanent residents can expect higher average incomes, higher output, and higher expenditure as the Canadian economy becomes more robust in the coming years.
