Although a new country and one that is best known for the abundance of its natural attractions, Canada has developed into a leading 21st Century economy. As a member of the G7 group of top industrial countries, it enjoys a high standard of living, excellent public infrastructure, a highly educated and skilled labour force, a world-class educational system and a well-deserved reputation as a successful trading nation. Canada also prides itself on the availability of excellent social services, primarily its publicly-financed healthcare system.
It is hardly surprising therefore, that Canada is frequently rated as the most preferred destination for immigrants, who praise its rich culture, natural beauty, political stability, economic prosperity and peaceful society.
While immigration to other countries has tightened, immigration to Canada has remained steady with a record number of newcomers arriving in 2008. Canada remains committed to its immigration program, constantly reviewing and implementing new ideas and policies to ensure that the process is not only fair, but efficient. Amongst recent proposals are a fast-track process for people from countries that are generally deemed safe and stricter controls of companies bringing in temporary foreign workers to ensure that the program is fair and equitable.
However, Canada’s immigration policy and regulations are strict, complex and prone to frequent changes. Not everyone is aware of these changes and, as a result, thousands of applications are rejected or unduly delayed every year because of technical issues and incomplete application forms. To ensure that you do not become a statistic in the thousands of disappointed applicants, seek the services of an approved Canada Immigration consultant who can assess your eligibility under the myriad of options available, while reducing the risk of continual delays and possible refusal of your application.
