INFOGRAPHIC: Immigration to Canada, 2012 – 2016
Canadian Immigration has been a hot topic lately. But just how many people immigrate to Canada each year and where do they come from? Let’s take a closer look at how many immigrants landed in Canada from 2012 to 2016 and their top 5 countries of birth.
People choose to become permanent residents of Canada not only for economic reasons but also to be reunited with their families. Others come as refugees seeking for a better future. Many immigrants choose Canada to have access to interesting and rewarding job opportunities. Immigration is beneficial to Canada and welcomes skilled and qualified workers, investors and entrepreneurs to take part and strengthen the Canadian Economy.
Canada’s appeal to immigrants is that everyone has the right to keep their religion, culture and language. Immigrants who come to Canada will also enjoy a better quality of life, freedom of communication, natural resources, beautiful sceneries as well as educational and health facilities. With so many opportunities and so much to enjoy, it’s easy to understand why over the past 5 years so many people have chosen Canada to settle down and start their new life.
