Canada is not accidentally claimed to be a land of immigrants and opportunities, whereas it has given a chance for the other life for representatives of different European nations throughout centuries. Indeed, this country can boast many opportunities for immigrants, such as the high quality of life, wonderful, well-preserved nature, and amazing cities that perfectly suit for a calm, enjoyable life.
Yet, you cannot rush to Canada at your own sweet will, while knowing nothing about the visa regulations, work conditions and how to get a job, and the overall lifestyle of an ordinary Canadian. Moreover, you should also speak the language the people you meet on the streets and at your work speak. And with the purpose of helping you to solve these issues, we have created this page, where you can find all necessary information about immigrating to Canada.
Know about the latest developments in the country
Prior to arriving in Canada, you should find employment or a place for studying. Otherwise, you are eligible to come to this country only with a purpose of tourism. You should stay informed about the recent developments in the country if you want to start studying or working there, and this is the time when our News in Canada section will help.
Primarily, the news published in this section will focus on the Canadian labor market and state of the Canadian economy, whereas both these issues are crucial when it comes to arriving in the country.
Get to know about the Canadian education and language situation
Once you have made up your mind about settling in any other country than your home, you should be ready for getting integrated in its society. Naturally, Canada is no exception, and these sections will help you to deal with such issues like language or studying.
The diversity of Canada
Indeed, Canada is quite a diverse country when it comes to languages. Considering that the country had been under the colonial rule of the French and British empires for quite a long time, it is not a surprise that both of these languages are widely spoken within the country. However, there are certain dialects of both English and French, and you must be ready to encounter such a situation that, even if you know any of these languages perfectly, you might misunderstand some Canadian citizens.
However, Canada is truly a land of immigrants and opportunities, and there are large ethnic minorities living within the country. In particular, the list includes a large number of European diaspora, such as Italian, Spanish, Irish, German, Ukrainian, Polish, and Russian. So it should not be surprising for you that the state also protects the rights of the minorities.
After all, there are also Canadian citizens who adhere to their roots and speak languages that have been spoken throughout those territories before the colonial rule appeared. At the present time, the state promised to protect the rights of those citizens to speak their native languages, and you can find out more about it by visiting the Learn Languages in Canada page.
