Canada is a world leader in receiving refugees

Thousands of new visitors every single year come to Canada and become citizens. The immigration in Canada is always was a big part of country`s development and growth. With a great number of refugees coming into our country, the Federal Government wants to attract the brightest and hardworking young people to move to Canada and become permanent residents.

The most recent statistics show that Canada has taken a leading position in the field of refugee resettlement, according to new data collected by a researcher from the University of Calgary, which raises questions about the country's role in overcoming the growing international refugee crisis.

Canada is known for being open to immigrants from all over the world and excepting refugees to help them feel safe and build a new life in a new country. Many of those refugees found a good job and a happily married to people they chose for themselves, they are also being productive members of Canadian society, often taking part in charity events and contributing as volunteers as much as they can.

Canada received just under 30,000 refugees in 2018, which is slightly higher than the number of displaced people in the European Union and by several thousand more than in the United States, which puts Canada on the position of historical leadership, thestar.com reports.

Robert Falconer, a researcher at the U of C School of Public Policy, said that although Canada increased the number of Syrian refugees from the previous year by about 10,000, its leading position is largely due to a sharp reduction in the resettlement of refugees in the United States last year.

For this reason, Falconer expects that the role of Canada in resettling refugees will be a hot topic during the upcoming federal elections scheduled for the autumn, and noted that negotiations should be held on how further events will develop if the US trend to reduce the number of resettled refugees continues.

The Government of Canada has slightly modified the requirements for candidates applying for the Express Entry program.

1.5% increased the minimum financial requirements for candidates. If earlier it was enough to show that you have 12,474 dollars in your account (for each candidate), now this amount is 12,669 dollars.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) encourages candidates to check that after the changes they continue to meet the minimum program requirements.
