Coming to Canada: 10 Reasons to Make the Move
Moving to Canada? Bow, wow, what an excellent choice!
There are at least ten big reasons to migrate to Canada in North America. Canada is the second biggest country in the world, second only to Russia; yet there are only 34 million inhabitants here, compared to the United States which has a whopping population of over 311 million.
The entire New York State alone has a population of 19 million. At these numbers, you can comfortably fit Canada's entire population in the state of New York and still have lots of space left. Proof: The Philippines, a country in Southeast Asia has a population of 92 million. It has a total landmass of about 115,000 square miles or roughly twice the size of New York State (47,000 square miles). Go figure. Canada would love to have a population like the Philippines. If only it were that easy to move an entire population to another country, Canada would have done it already.
In a nutshell, here are the ten big reasons to migrate to Canada:
1. In Canada, lottery winnings are tax free
2. Canada needs more people
3. Canada has super abundant natural resources
4.There is so much water and electricity, way more than enough for the average home
5.The potential oil that the landmass of Canada is sitting on will rival the remaining oil of the Middle East. Proof: Nearly unlimited amounts of bitumen deposits or oil sands are found in the plains of Alberta and its border with the neighboring province of Saskatchewan, in the city of Saskatoon to be exact. Oil oozing from deep in the ground and up means that Canada has barely scratched the surface! And that, folks, is not even counting the Arctic reserves yet (up for discussion between Canada, the United States, Russia, Denmark and Norway)
6. Basic constitutional freedoms are upheld
7. No civil wars, revolutions and terrorist activities; also no tsunamis and typhoons, just a few avalanches
8. Canada needs more tax to collect
9. Canada is relatively less congested than the United States and that means less traffic and crowded places, great news for individuals suffering from claustrophobia
10. The United States is just around the border in case you miss it
For sure, there are many other reasons for coming to Canada, but these ten should suffice. If you are looking to raise a family, these reasons should all the more be important to you, particularly if you win the lottery. While there is enough modernity, there are large chunks of Canada situated in the wilderness and designated as natural parks like the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Don't let the winter scare you, there are parts of Canada that have mild winters and just one of them is the city of Vancouver in the province of British Columbia. If you like it cold the whole year through, then that is all the more reason to migrate here. Since I came here in 1996, I have never looked back.
Canada is such a beautiful country with such a varied terrain that hopping from one province to another is like visiting a different country. And yeah, Canada is neatly broken down into provinces.for the most part, not states. Canada has ten provinces, namely Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba,Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. The country has three territories and these are Nunavut, the Northwest and the Yukon.
If you want less congestion and temperate weather, the province of British Columbia is an excellent choice. It's not called supernatural British Columbia for nothing. It is scenically breathtaking, dotted by miles and miles of trees, mountains, rivers and lakes. It also has roughly one-third of the population of the province of Ontario, where the city of Toronto is situated.
The cities of Vancouver and Victoria in British Columbia are like twin cities and not only because they are found in the same province, but because they are almost identical in weather patterns characterized by mild winters. Hence it is safe to say that Victoria is a lot like Vancouver, only less congested, better planned, and more artsy. And by the way, Victoria also happens to be the capital of British Columbia. It is rather like the Terra Nova of Vancouver, without the dinosaurs of course.
While there are at least ten big reasons to migrate to Canada, you might come up with even more reasons if you come here for a visit and see for yourself the vast landscape and the almost infinite number of choices for you and your family to settle. Canada needs your tax dollars although in spite of the economic depression going around like the flu, the country has remained relatively stable. And with lots of resources both natural and human, why shouldn't it be, especially if you join the fray, huh?
