WHY SHOULD YOU IMMIGRATE TO CANADA?
Canada is the world’s second largest country and the fourth largest country by land area. Its capital is Ottawa and its five largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary and Ottawa. It is one of the world’s most ethnically diverse and multicultural nation, the product of large scale immigration from many other countries. Its advanced economy is the tenth largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well- developed international trade networks. Canada is the world’s tenth largest economy as of 2016, with a nominal GDP of approximately US$1.52 trillion. It is one of the world’s top ten trading nations with a highly globalized economy. The Canadian public as-well as the major political parties support the current level of immigration. New immigrants settle mostly in major urban areas such as Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
In common with many other developed countries, Canada is experiencing a demographic shift towards an older population, with more retirees and fewer people of working age.

Paper applications are processed in an average of seven weeks, with processing times ranging from two to 19 weeks, depending on the visa office. Processing times are usually significantly lower using online methods.
Provincial Nominee Program(PNP)
Provincial and territorial governments have been using these programs to more effectively and efficiently welcome newcomers to their region. Each PNP is tailored to the province’s/territory’s specific needs to select nominees who will be able to settle into life and work in the region and to effectively contribute to the community. As of 2017, most PNPs contain at least one immigration stream aligned with the federal Express Entry Immigration Selection System.
