The true North strong and free; that is how we describe Canada, how we advertise it to the world, how we identify, because that’s exactly what we are and exactly why so many people choose Canada as their host country, strength and freedom.
Canada has been rated by the United Nations as the best place to live in the entire world, every year since 1994. It’s on paper; Canada’s the best, but why? Why do we have so much strength and freedom? Why is Canada topping the charts? As a Canadian citizen, I most certainly have the answer for you.
First of all the economy is booming, Canada currently has the eleventh largest economy and is one of the wealthiest nations; it is also a part of both the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and Group of Seven. The logging and oil industries are two of the most important along with the manufacturing sector, centered in Central Canada, with the automobile and aircraft industry being of most importance. Because of Canada’s beautiful, long coastal line, it has the 8th largest commercial fishing and seafood industry in the world and Canada is one of the global leaders of the entrainment software industry.
The job market in Canada is flourishing right now, the unemployment rate is the lowest it’s been since 1976, With hundreds of thousands of new jobs created in Canada each year it’s plain to see why so many people come here for work; Canadians earn an average annual income of approximately $40,000.
Quite possibly one of the biggest perks of being a Canadian citizen is that up here in the “great white North” we have free healthcare! With only a few minor exceptions, all citizens qualify for health coverage such as medical treatments from primary care physicians, access to hospitals, dental surgery and addition medical services, regardless of your medical history, personal income, or standard of living.
We are treated equally in Canada, which is another why reason why Canada is such a great country to live in! Stated in the Canadian Contusion Act is “Every individual is equal before the and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age, or mental or physical disability.” We also encourage immigrants to retain their cultures, to wear their homes on their selves, creating a diverse and peaceful society.
Canadians live one of the highest qualities of life in the world, a clean environment, beautiful scenery and the kindest people make for a healthy and happy life! The expected life span of the average Canadian is 82.5 years, whereas other countries such as Ukraine and Egypt have expectancies of 71-73 years and in countries like Central Africa Republic its only 48 years.
Here in Canada we have we top equality education, offering free primary and secondary education and subsidized post-secondary studies. Students are one of the country’s top priorities spending more on education than any other industrialized nation, our universities and colleges are top notch quality further proving that your education in Canada is valued.
Crime rates in Canada are among the lowest in the world and continue to drop; we’re an extremely peaceful nation! With safe and secure community policing, strict gun control laws and a fair justice system you can sleep soundly at night.
From our beautiful scenery and immense safety to our thriving economy and job market, why would you choose any other place to live in but Canada? Our caring country will welcome you with open arms and bright smiles because we are the true North, strong and free.
