If you have found yourself wanting to explore the world, a move to another country is a practical step in the right direction. Immersing yourself in another culture, going on adventures, and touring that country’s most famous places is an incredible experience for anyone, young or old. Canada may be one of the coldest places you’ll ever live in but it is a small price to pay for the gorgeous scenery and vast uninhabited landscape. Here are the top 5 reasons to choose to live and work in Canada.
1. Huge Job Market
Canada has countless jobs opportunities for qualified and skilled employees. With over 500 000 jobs on offer, finding a job here will be the least of your worries. Canada has a large elderly population so retirement figures are higher here, which is why there are so many jobs available. Canadian salaries are also more than decent because most Canadian employers believe in looking after their employees. Healthcare benefits are available to permanent residents and Canadian citizens, and these benefits are amazing – you won’t have to pay for most health services because they have a fantastic public healthcare system.
2. Tons of Space
Being the second-largest country in the world, Canada has no shortage of explorable space. That means that regardless of whether you live in a larger city or a smaller village, your living space will be a decent size. Homes and apartments are generally generous when it comes to room size and you’ll get a great sized yard for your kids/pets. This is great if you’re considering moving to Canada, to put it in perspective – the UK could fit into Canada 40 times over.
Canada prides itself on being progressive and culturally diverse. This means that it doesn’t matter where you come from, you’ll be accepted with open arms. Toronto, one of Canada’s busiest cities, is one of the most fascinating places to live in. With almost 10 000 different restaurants and bars, over 300 measurable days of sunshine, and people from all walks of life, Toronto is one of the places to be.
4. Low Crime Rates
Besides its well-deserved friendly reputation, Canada is also considered to be one of the safest places to live. That doesn’t mean you should let your guard down, it just means that you don’t need to obsess about the safety of you and your family when you move there. Some cities have higher crime rates than others so do some research on the crime rate in your chosen city to help you decide about where to move to.
5. Happy People
Canadians are known for their warm and welcoming nature. There is just something about them that makes them so much happier than most of the rest of the world. I have yet to meet a grumpy Canadian and I’m honestly not sure if they even exist. This isn’t just a rumor either, Canada is consistently ranked as one of the happiest places on Earth.
