Why Canada?

 

Canada is the home of immigrants.  All Canadians are immigrants except the native people.  Multiculturalism was adopted as the official policy of the Canadian government during the premiership of Pierre Elliot Trudeau in the 1970s and 1980s. Since then, the Canadian government has often been described as the instigator of multicultural ideology because of its public emphasis on the social importance of immigration.

 

Multiculturalism is reflected in the law through the Canadian Multiculturalism Act and section 27 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In recent years, approximately 300,000 people immigrated to Canada every year. The newcomers settle mostly in the major urban areas of Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

 

Canadian society is often depicted as being very progressive, diverse, and multicultural.  Racism is a serious crime in Canada.

 

Since both English and French are the official languages in Canada and there are many ethnic communities in the major cities, the language barrier to new immigrants in Canada is one of the lowest in the world.

 

Numerous outdoor activities, wildlife, sceneries, clean environment, better welfare, legal, health and education systems are the main attractions of Canada.
