With its positive immigration policies, Canada is one of the easiest countries for skilled workers to immigrate to in 2020. Here are 5 reasons you should consider Canada as your next permanent home:
With its points-based system called Express Entry, skilled workers can easily determine if Canada is a reasonable option. The process can take as little as 4-6 months for many applicants, and also leads you down the path to citizenship. Citizenship requires that you spend 3 of your previous 5 years living in Canada, which means you can apply for citizenship much quicker than in countries like the USA.
Public primary and secondary education is free for citizens and permanent residents in Canada, and higher education tends to be cheaper in Canada as compared to other countries like the US and UK.
Citizens and permanent residents also have access to free, world class healthcare. This covers things like check ups with physicians, to seeing specialists and surgeries as well.
The Canadian Pension Plan (CPP) is an impressive benefit for those who are above 60 and have contributed to their plan while working in Canada. Another reason why settling in Canada is a great long-term decision.
The Government of Canada provides permanent residents and citizens with a monthly payment to help with the costs associated with raising children under the age of 18, depending on the income of the parents.
