The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a federal republic in South Asia. With a population of over 201 million people, it is ranked as the 6th most populous country in the world. Due to its high population rate and low unemployment rate, the country has witnessed an increase in migrations to first world countries like Canada.
Canada receives over a quarter of a million migrants from countries around the world, including Pakistan. A significant number of Pakistanis immigrate to Canada under the skilled worker class, family sponsorship, provincial nominee program (PNP).
Here are 5 great reasons to immigrate to Canada from Pakistan and make it your future home.
Canada prides itself on being a multicultural country, so much so that it became the first country to adopt multiculturalism as an official policy in 1971. Canadian multiculturalism is inclusive citizenship that accepts the dignity of its people regardless of ethnic origin, language, or religious affiliation. Cultural diversity is considered a national asset in Canada, making it a favorable immigration destination for Pakistani, as they will be free and guaranteed equality before the law, and equality of opportunity regardless of their origin.
In major cities like Toronto and Vancouver, immigrant minorities are consistently visible, emphasizing the point that multiculturalism is widely considered one of the country’s well-cherished attributes.
A welcoming nation
The United Nations Global Peace Index ranks Canada as 4th behind only Denmark, Iceland, and New Zealand. Ask virtually anyone anywhere in the world to describe a Canadian and you will hear adjectives such as “friendly”, “peaceful”, and “polite”.
Canadians are a very warm and welcoming people, easy to approach, and they are more likely to approach you too. Canada has come out tops in any survey that tries to determine which country has the best reputation towards immigrants.
Life in Canada is pretty much easy going, and there are halal restaurants through the country’s cities, as well as Pakistani grocery stores almost everywhere.
Canada is one of the richest countries in the world. With a stable political environment, Canada’s economy has continued to flourish, meaning employment opportunities are plentiful and available.
Skilled immigrants with basic experience will find that their chances of successfully applying for migration to the country are greatly improved. There are many professions in Canada for Pakistani immigrants including the need for skilled and trained people in IT, Engineering, or the health sector. Employers also need tradespeople with skills in plumbing, carpentry, and electrical knowledge.
Opportunities are also available for businessmen and investors whose work helps Canada to maintain its economic strength.
Like education, access to appropriate medical services is considered a birthright in Canada. Health care in Canada is provided through a publicly funded system and it is virtually free.
The system guarantees that no Canadian citizens or permanent residents are denied access to health care because they cannot afford it, meaning your annual income does not determine your access to health care.
Expenditure on health is at 11.4% of the gross domestic product with over 88% of Canadians reportedly claiming to be in good health. The country’s life expectancy stands at 81.95 years.

Canada is the second-largest country in the world with an almost unbelievable 10 million kilometers of open land and stunning countryside, ensuring that this is arguably one of the world’s most beautiful countries too.
Canada can literally take your breath away, from the huge woodlands to the clear blue waters of its lakes and snow-covered peaks.
A relatively small population of just over 35 million people live in this vast and wide country, and there is plenty of traveling and sightseeing to keep yourself busy, be it during the weekends or holidays. You could go hiking, kayaking, skiing, whale watching, duck feeding, all in the confinement of its spectacular wilderness.
