Always Wanted to Move To Canada? This year, make your dreams a reality!

Have you always wanted to move to Canada? Now is the right time for you to move to Canada!

Canada recently announced a multi-year immigration plan to admit nearly 1 million immigrants by 2020. The government's plan focuses on the successful integration of new immigrants and includes admitting nearly 300,000 immigrants in 2018. Every year, thousands of people around the world want to move to Canada, but are waiting for the "right time." There are many reasons to move to Canada - a strong economy, excellent public health care and education, a strong sense of community, and a community that values family unification.

2018 is the right time to move to Canada, says immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah. She believes qualifed immigrants help build a stronger Canada:

Many talented, educated and creative people want to move to our country to work and start businesses that will improve our economy and create jobs. Canada's emphasis on family reunification welcomes new immigrants with strong family ties who want to build their lives here. I support our government's goals to welcome newcomers to Canada and provide them with the tools and resources to successfully integrate into their local community and their new lives as Canadians.
