  • Canada World’s #3 Top Destination For Job Seekers

    According to a survey of 203,756 people around the globe published in October 2014 by the Boston Consulting Group, Canada is the #3 top destination in the world for job seekers, after the US and UK. While many people from around the globe consider Canadian immigration an attractive alternative to living and working in their own country, the survey found that individuals from the United Kingdom, France, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Mexico are especially interested in seeking jobs in Canada. Three Canadian cities were also listed among the world’s most desirable cities for skilled foreign workers in the global survey, with Toronto ranked 8th, Montreal 21st and Vancouver in 23rd place.

     

    The survey discovered that Canada is very attractive to skilled foreign workers for several reasons. A key motivation, of course, is that there are thousands of jobs in Canada that are available to qualified skilled foreign workers. Many global job seekers also want to work in an English-speaking country such as Canada since English is either their native language or they learned it as a second language. Another major motivation to move to Canada cited in the survey is a desire for security, safety and stability. Having access to Canada’s excellent healthcare system and the country’s spectacular scenery were also noted as top reasons to move to Canada.

     

    Not only are thousands of people throughout the world interested in Canadian immigration, but Canada’s government is also seeking thousands of qualified skilled foreign workers to help fill jobs in Canada that cannot be filled by Canadian workers. This has been a major factor contributing to Canada being the world's third most popular destination for international job seekers. With thousands of older Canadian workers retiring at the same time that Canada’s economy continues to expand, there has been an ongoing shortage of skilled labor across Canada in various high-demand occupations. Thus, the Canadian government and businesses have encouraged skilled foreign workers with certain qualifications to move to Canada to live, work and help keep the Canadian economy growing.  If you also want to move to Canada and would like to learn more about Canadian immigration, click here!
