Reasons to move to Canada

August 18 2021

Canada is host to incredible landscapes and more lakes than you can imagine. It’s the perfect place for those seeking adventure but there are many reasons to move to Canada.

1. Low crime rates

Canada enjoys some of the lowest crime rates in the world, and you’ll also be pleased to know that the crime rates are falling still. The Global Peace Index measures it as the sixth safest country. So no need to be too worried about crime if you’re planning on moving to Canada.

2. Travel options

There are loads of places to explore in Canada. If you’re a nature enthusiast you can visit Banff national park and explore the great lakes. You’ve also got the Canadian Rockies. Or if you prefer city breaks, you’ve got the bustling city of Vancouver or head to the other side of the country to Toronto and pop to see Niagara Falls. You’re also super close to the USA and not too far away from the Caribbean.

3. Healthcare

Canada boasts a robust, universal healthcare. Depending on your visa, medical attention and intervention is free or cheap at the point of use, paid for by government taxes, very much like our NHS.

4. Multiculturalism

Canada attracts people from all nations and is undoubtedly a melting pot. In the cities, you will meet people of all nationalities, and this is reflected in the excellent variety of foods available.

5. Wildlife

If you’re a wildlife enthusiast you won’t be disappointed in Canada. You can find black bears, grizzly bears, mountain lions, buffalo, moose and more. If you head towards British Columbia, you might even be lucky enough to see whales.

6. Education

Education is one of the core values of Canada and the Canadian government, and they spend more per capita on it than any other country in the world. Schooling is excellent, and the children perform well. As a result, Canadians tend to stay in education longer than their counterparts elsewhere.

7. Nature

The postcard-friendly views of the lakes and mountains of the Great White North are known throughout the world. Living in Canada, all types of nature are at your disposal, and the opportunities to enjoy it with hiking, kayaking and skiing are endless. Take a trip in the icy tundra of the north and you might be lucky enough to spot the glorious Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.

8. The economy

Canada has a very strong economy, largely based on their wealth of natural resources; natural gas, oil, gold, copper, iron ore and uranium, as well as an abundance of arable land all bring a tidy income to the country. The country’s banking system is the most stable in the world, according to the World Economic Forum, and business is good in the cities.

9. Food

You can find food of all types in Canada’s multicultural, metropolitan areas. Canadians rave about their national dish, poutine. This typically French-Canadian dish of fries laden with cheese and smothered in gravy seems almost like an upmarket version of the cheesy-chips-and-gravy so many Brits enjoy on the way back from the pub.

10. The people

The Canadian people are one of the biggest selling points of the country. Known to be friendly and polite to the point of over-apologetic, Canadians also have a killer sense of humour. The good-humoured, friendly people of Canada are sure to make you feel right at home.
