  • Legatum Ranks Canada #5 in the World For Prosperity

    If you are looking for prosperity, freedom and tolerance, then you may want to move to Canada! According to the 2014 Prosperity Index published by the London-based Legatum Institute, Canada ranks #5 in the world for prosperity out of the 142 countries evaluated, behind #1 Norway, #2 Switzerland, #3 New Zealand and #4 Denmark. Canada was also rated highly for freedom, with 92% of the people who live in Canada reporting that they have the freedom to decide on the best economic and social course for their lives (compared to just 10% of the residents of the United States). In terms of education, one of the factors making up the Prosperity Index, Canada was ranked #2 in the world after Australia (by comparison, the United States was rated 11th in the world for education).

     

    With one of the highest standards of living of any country on Earth, it is not surprising that thousands of people from around the globe want to move to Canada. After all, the Legatum Institute ranked the Canadian economy #5 in the world and there are thousands of jobs in Canada available for skilled foreign workers. In fact, Canada’s government announced on October 31, 2014, that it is planning to substantially increase the number of foreign nationals that it will authorize to live in Canada long-term in 2015. The Canadian government has established a goal to issue a Permanent Resident (PR) Visa to Canada for between 260,000 and 285,000 people from around the world in 2015, which is an increase of 19,000 over Canadian immigration for 2013. Of those who will be granted a PR Visa to Canada in 2015, the goal is for 181,300 “economic immigrants” to be approved to move to Canada; an additional 68,000 foreign nationals will be allowed to live in Canada through family sponsorship; and 29,800 individuals will be admitted into the country for humanitarian reasons. Thus, if you are seeking jobs in Canada and want to live in freedom in one of the most prosperous countries on the planet, now is a great time to apply for Canadian immigration!
