Thinking of relocating to Canada? Not only is it one of the friendliest places on earth, but it is also one of the best countries in general. It’s not just our opinion – it’s a fact! Canada consistently ranks within the top 10 countries in the world by quality of life.
But what makes Canada so great? Is it the fantastic job opportunities? Its high safety ranking? The perfectly balanced family-to-work life ratio? It’s a combination of all of these factors, so let’s list our top 5 reasons to move from New Zealand to Canada this year.
1) Job opportunities
Job opportunities are plentiful in Canada. Industries with high demand for more workers span from mining and transport to hospitality and retail. Large industries in Canada include fishing, mining, logging, construction and software development, so if one of those fields is your niche, then you’re bound to find work in Canada!
2) Life balance
Canadians have a similar approach to Kiwis when it comes to balancing life. Canadians enjoy between 16 and 30 days paid leave a year, depending on the province, allowing you to enjoy time with your family, to travel and explore. It’s far better than in the US, where there’s no guarantee of paid leave – instead, it is at the discretion of employers.
3) Great place to raise children
Canada is an incredibly safe country – according to World Population Review, it’s ranked #6 in the world for safety, ahead of Japan, Singapore and Switzerland. This, along with other factors, means it’s a great place to raise children. Children in Canada grow up with wide open spaces, fresh air and great education opportunities.
Canada is also the most educated country in the world, with over 56% of the population having earned tertiary education qualifications. Great public and private schools span across the whole country.
4) Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
If you thought the snow in New Zealand was awesome, wait till you get to Canada!
With powdery white snow covering the slopes, Canadian ski are frequented by hundreds of thousands of people each year. Skiing, snowboarding and ice-skating are all popular sports in Canada.
5) It’s easy to get a visa
As a fellow Commonwealth country, it’s super easy for Kiwis to get working visas in Canada. A two-year working visa requires a simple online application!
