    According to the Bloomberg Nanos Canadian Confidence Index which was released in January 2018, consumer confidence in Canada is close to a record high not seen since 2009.

     

    Quebec had the highest level of consumer confidence of any Canadian province or territory as 2017 came to a close, due in large part to the very strong jobs market in this predominantly French-speaking province.

    Additionally, many people who live in Canada are increasing in wealth as stock prices continue to soar.

    With a growing economy, plentiful jobs in Canada, and rising prosperity, the New Year of 2018 offers a bright future full of great opportunities, particularly for skilled foreign workers and their families.

     

    During 2018, Canada's government has set a goal to grant permanent residency to 310,000 immigrants from all over the world, including 177,500 foreign workers and their family members.
