Many people often ask what are the benefits of permanently moving to Canada, So the first subject that comes to mind is, Canada being quite large with Ten Provinces and Three Territories, what are your rights in terms of where you have to live. So the first question that comes to your mind is your mobility rights
When you become a Canadian permanent resident you’re entitled to live anywhere in Canada for the purposes of becoming employed and that allows you to move freely amongst the provinces.
One important consideration when you are expressing interest to move to a particular area of the country is that you must be truthful about staying in that Province, but subsequently freedom of mobility will allow you to move anywhere you want in Canada.
what’s not a good idea is to target a specific area of the country and if that particular province selects you, it’s not suitable if you actually move to another province right from the start.
So it’s very important to get it right from the beginning, but freedom of mobility is an important consideration and once you become a Canadian permanent resident you can move freely anywhere in Canada if it’s done properly.
Another area that’s obviously important once you become a Canadian permanent resident is you have access to universal healthcare coverage.
For most individuals, there is a consideration as to when you begin to qualify for universal health care coverage.
There is no waiting period, there’s no period that you have to acclimatize and wait in these six provinces which include Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland Labrador.
However, in the remaining four provinces there is a waiting period, and generally it’s three months so we often encourage individuals to have insurances with third party providers in place.
One of the most important benefits of becoming a Canadian permanent resident is the right to become a Canadian citizen, and Naturalization is a period of residency that one can then apply for Canadian citizenship.
In Canada, as you may know, there’s the requirement to have three years of physical residence in the preceding five years prior to submitting the application and if you’re between the ages of 18 and 54 you must also pass a language test.
Another important consideration in becoming a Canadian permanent resident is the quality of life that Canada offers over so many other countries.
In fact, in the most recent report, US News and World Report’s rankings are based on many different categories such as quality of life index and, Canada no surprise is ranked as one of the highest for 2018. Also, there is a security ranking, citizenship, etc.
If you are in the age group of 25 to 55, employment will be an important consideration. The good news obviously is that Canada offers excellent economic performance.
It’s interesting to know that 71% of newcomers to Canada have a higher percent employment rate when looking at the past five years, and this is an age group of 25 to 54.
Canada will be admitting more than 300,000 immigrants, and this trend of increased numbers is expected to continue well into the next three years.
The Canadian government has forecast well over 1 million newcomers to be admitted to Canada as Canadian permanent residents by 2022.
So, in general, these are the broad benefits of becoming a Canadian permanent resident, with an excellent job market number one quality of life, and other benefits.
