Canada is one of the top destinations to immigrate to. And for good reason:

It covers a vast amount of beautiful landscapes. There is a community for everyone with many different life styles and landscapes. People come from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures, making it very cosmopolitan and interesting. Its economy is stable. And, of course, Canada has a welcoming immigration policy.

According to Statistics Canada, between 1980 and 2016, Canada accepted 5,703,615 immigrants. The distribution of immigrants based on admission category was as follows:
In 2017, Canada announced its plans to admit one million new immigrants over the next three years. This is a clear indication that Canada’s open immigration policy continues to prevail.
