Your dream to make Canada your home is still real!

Remember when you said you want to make Canada your permanent home? Well now is the time to act on it. Canada is known as the melting pot of culture as the country is made up of the most diverse population in the world. 

Canada is a popular place among aspiring students as this country offers a high-quality education. Once graduated from a Canadian University, the degree is renowned worldwide. The certificate received acts as a mark of excellence! By applying for a Permanent Residency in Canada, you are not only getting access to this world-class education, but you are also able to give this access to your children.

Canada is a very multicultural country and Canadians are receptive to different cultures and people from different parts of the world have made Canada its home. This being said, is education the only path to Canada? Well not really, though education is the most popular choice among Millennials and Generation Z; Canada has widely introduced many other programs to welcome immigrants from around the world.

On March 12, 2020, Honourable Marco Mendicino, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC) shared the plan for 2020-2020 immigration levels. The plan highlights the plan to continue to grow the economy and create middle-class jobs through the responsible increase in newcomers.
