  • Vancouver #1 in North America For Quality of Life

    The Canadian city of Vancouver has been ranked as having the #1 best quality of life in North America by the international human resources firm Mercer. In its 2015 “Quality of Living Rankings” released in March 2015, not only did Mercer consider Vancouver to be the top city in North America for standard of living, but it also listed Vancouver as having the 5th highest quality of life out of 230 cities evaluated around the world. Other Canadian cities listed among the best places on the planet to live included #15 Toronto and #16 Ottawa. Thus, if you and your family would like to enjoy one of the highest living standards on Earth, you may want to move to Canada!

     

    Now is a good time to move to Canada, particularly after the new Express Entry Canadian immigration system was launched on January 1, 2015. Qualified skilled foreign workers and their eligible family members who meet the criteria for Express Entry can now receive a decision within six months after submitting their complete application for a Permanent Resident (PR) Visa to Canada. Express Entry was created to more efficiently bring skilled foreign workers to Canada who can quickly start working in their field and contribute to the Canadian economy. Hundreds of high-demand occupations are eligible for Express Entry. Examples include various professions that usually require a university degree (such as accountants, engineers, healthcare professionals, managers and educators, among many others) and skilled trades (including carpenters, electricians, mechanics, plumbers, welders, etc.).

     

    In order to meet the eligibility requirements for Express Entry to Canada, a skilled foreign worker must qualify for one of the Canadian “economic immigration” programs participating in the Express Entry system and they must also file an online Express Entry profile. There are, of course, other eligibility criteria that must be met for Express Entry to Canada. If the Canadian government reviews the Express Entry profile and issues the skilled foreign worker an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the PR Visa to Canada, they will then have 60 days to submit a complete Canadian PR Visa application and should receive their visa decision within six months in most cases. Just think – if you are approved for Express Entry to Canada, you and your eligible family members could soon be enjoying the high standard of living that Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and other Canadian cities are known for!
