Why Immigrate to Canada
Through immigration streams such as the Provincial Nominee Program and the Agri-Food Immigration Pilot, Canada is opening up hundreds of thousands of job opportunities to foreigners. The reason is that Canada’s population growth is unable to meet the rapidly growing economy’s demands. High salaries for semi-skilled and skilled workers such as butchers, mechanics, and IT professionals are luring people from all over the globe. Engineers earn an average of $67,052 and butchers $45,045 per year.
Generous minimum wage requirements put in place by the Canadian government for farm workers and harvesting labourers ensure a good quality of life for all of Canada’s residents. Harvesters earn an average of $23,400 per year. Here is a comprehensive list of the in-demand jobs in Canada.
Through these immigration programs, it is possible to become a permanent resident in Canada. There is a strict list of requirements that must be met, and if you do you have a chance of becoming a citizen in a country with one of the best social service systems on earth. Public services in Canada include free healthcare and schooling for your children.
Top Level Universities

You Don’t Have to Leave Your Family Behind

How Do I Get To Canada from Kenya?
There are a number of various immigration pathways and streams that will help you on your pathway to becoming a permanent resident and even a Canadian citizen one day, but the first thing you will need is to apply for a Temporary Work Permit:
Temporary Work Permit Requirements
- Your employer must have a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment;
- which he must provide a copy of the LMIA along with a job offer letter or employment contract;
- Once you have these, complete the required forms and submit them.
Once you have your work permit you can begin your journey. For some programs, such as the Provincial Nomination Program, you can apply for permanent residency at the same time as you apply for your work permit, as you will have a provincial nomination. For others, such as the Agri-food Immigration Pilot, you will need to first get one year's worth of experience in Canada before submitting your application for permanent residency.
