About Canada

For several years, Canada has been accepting about quarter of a million of new immigrants every year.

People with skills, work experience, good English or French knowledge and without criminal records, may qualify for permanent residence. Once accepted, individuals can take pleasure from the fact that they will have the privilege to live permanently in a country consistently rated by the United Nations as one of the world’s best country to live in.


Canada is the world’s second biggest country in land, rich in natural resources including oil reserves. Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined. There may be as many as two million, with 563 lakes larger than 100 square kilometres.  Canada’s largest include Lake Huron (Ontario), Great Bear Lake (Northwest Territories), and Lake Superior (Ontario).  Lake Winnipeg, Canada’s fifth and the world’s 11th largest, is in Manitoba.

For many years, Canada is seen as offering the best quality of life, driven by high ratings for education, health care, entrepreneurship, economic influence and public safety. Canada’s health care is public, payment is not required for medical treatment.

Canadians pride themselves in encouraging all of their citizens to honor their own cultures. In 1971, Canada adopted a national policy of multiculturalism, which celebrates the country’s diversity. Canada is the first country in the world to adopt a policy of multiculturalism, embracing diversity and pluralism. Today, of Canada’s total population of more than 35 million, a fifth are immigrants. In fact, Canada is home to people from over 200 ethnic origins. Around 4.3 per cent of the total Canadian population reported an Aboriginal identity and 19.1 per cent belong to a visible minority. The largest groups among these visible minorities are South Asians, Chinese and Africans, followed by Filipinos, Latin Americans, Arabs, Southeast Asians, West Asians, Koreans and Japanese.
